Connecting communities to our coast

Greyhope Bay Centre - more than a cafe with a view
Greyhope Bay is a charitable organisation that exists to connect and engage communities with the marine world – imagining more for Aberdeen, our communities and our coast. We are based in Aberdeen, NE Scotland where we have successfully built a café and community centre on the historic site of Torry Battery offering panoramic views of our coast, community-led programming and the best place in the UK to spot bottlenose dolphins from the shore.
Events at Greyhope Bay Centre

Our community-led programme includes weekly coffee mornings with guest speaker's, coastal discovery sessions, beach cleans and creative and wellbeing workshops. Scheduled on Monday's / Tuesday afternoons / evenings and weekends, book on one of our events below.
