The city hosted the writer Lewis Carrol on many occasions and is where he wrote most of Jabberwocky along with the Walrus and the Carpenter.

Staying with the arts, the painter L.S. Lowry was also a frequent visitor to the city, where he stayed at the Seaburn Hotel.

The city is undergoing a transformation with a £300 million master plan to regenerate Dundee Waterfront which is expected to last for a 30-year period between 2001 and 2031. The aims of the project will be to reconnect the city centre to the waterfront, to improve facilities for walking, cyclists and buses, to replacing the existing inner ring road with a pair of east/west tree lined boulevards, build a new civic square and a regenerated railway station and arrival space at the western edge. A new Victoria and Albert museum is also being built which is set to be completed by 2015.
