Things to do in Aberdeen


Union Square is the latest shopping and leisure destination in Aberdeen. Built by Hammerson plc at a cost of over £250 million, Union Square combines unique new architecture with the Aberdeen train station façade built in the early 20th century. The result is a development that has regenerated this area of the city while respecting the heritage that the site represents.


Union Square offers over 60 shops and restaurants.

It is also home to Cineworld's ten screen multiplex cinema which seats 2,400 people and features four state of the art 3D screens.

Conveniently located beside Aberdeen rail and bus stations, it is only a 5 minute walk from the Antrim Guest House.
