Plan Your Visit

Discovery Point is a world class visitor attraction which centres round Captain Scott of the Antarctic’s Dundee built ship RRS Discovery.

Climb aboard and follow in the footsteps of Scott and his crew, see how they lived, what they ate and witness their hardships and their triumphs. It’s a fascinating tale of one of the most heroic voyages of exploration ever undertaken and a great day out for all the family.
