Union Terrace is a single carriageway street in the city centre of Aberdeen. At the south end, it has a junction with Union Street, at Union Bridge and Bridge Street; and at the north end, it has a junction with Rosemount Viaduct, with the Central Library and His Majesty's Theatre on that street.

The street hosts the Aberdeen International Market roughly once every three months.[1][permanent dead link]Union Terrace Gardens are in the Denburn Valley, adjacent to Union Terrace. There are currently plans to enhance the gardens, with one to put an art centre which will blend with the landscape, the other to create a civic square levelling the gardens and bringing them up to street level.
