A successful day's sightseeing is all about a good balance of activities and great photo opportunities while hopefully getting good weather as part of the bargain. Whether you're a family hoping to keep the kids occupied while maybe giving them an educational experience, a historical monument enthusiast who wants to soak up all the history of the city or an outdoorsy type who's looking for some great scenery mixed with a good walk then there's something to suit you. Day trips to the coastal suburbs offer great walks and beautiful views both of the coastline and the city and they don't take long to embark on or return from.
Meanwhile in the city centre we have plenty of gardens and parks with statues and memorials so you can take in some wonderful architecture and foliage while learning a little bit about what makes our city great. If you're looking for to take in the sights on the move then heading to the Viking Splash Tours is one way to experience the city on both land and water while getting into the swing of things with a festive hat.
