Outside Beverbrooks stands a huge statue of Desperate Dan his dog and Minnie The Minx. Great place to get some pics or meet with friends.

If you are in Dundee and you are old enough to remember the Beano this is an ideal opportunity for a comedy selfie. Just in front of the Overgate centre it is easy to find.
