“People Make Glasgow” is phrase you’ll see everywhere on your trip, and it sums up perfectly what you can expect from a Glasgow vacation. The city has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the UK’s friendliest cities, and whether your interests are cultural, athletic, shopping or food-related, Glasgow has a lot to offer.
Arriving in Glasgow
Glasgow is served by a local airport with regular flights from Europe and North America. Driving from the airport into the city will take 20 minutes, or hop on one of the frequent shuttle buses outside the terminal. By train, Glasgow is less than five hours from London, and is linked to the rest of the UK motorway network for easy arrival by car. The M8 motorway runs right through the heart of the city, making travel from your Glasgow vacation home around the city very straightforward. The city has both an underground and overground rail network, and along with the efficient bus services, wherever your Glasgow vacation rental is located, you will be within easy reach of the city's attractions.
Glasgow is a compact city, so vacation rentals in the Glasgow city center are always close to major attractions. Start in George Square and explore on foot, taking in the shopping thoroughfare of Buchanan Street, the famous Mackintosh School of Art, the river Clyde and the elegant buildings of the Merchant City, a throwback to Glasgow’s past as a major port city. Or take a stroll along the river back to Glasgow's shipbuilding past and see the enormous Finnieston crane, before a visit to one of the city's many parks such as Glasgow Green or the Botanic Gardens.
Art and culture
On top of many visitors’ lists is the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery in the West End, which is home to world-class artwork and artefacts which tell the story of Glasgow’s industrial past. Visit at lunchtime to hear free organ recitals in the main hall. If modern art is more your thing, visit the Museum Of Modern Art in Royal Exchange Square. Glasgow's theaters and concert halls have a wide program of performances right through the year. Although a little out of town on the south side of the city, the Glasgow Museums Resource Center stores all those items which cannot be displayed, and runs regular guided tours and workshops, as well as interactive events for families every weekend. Booking in advance is essential, and you will need a car to get there from most Glasgow vacation rentals.
Activities with children
Don’t miss the superb Riverside Museum and Tall Ship, which have been designed especially with kids in mind and provide great fun for a family vacation. The Botanic Gardens or Kelvingrove Park have lots of space for running and rental off steam, whatever the weather. The Science Center beside the river offers hands-on science experiments and shows for children of all ages. Glasgow's museums always put on special workshops, events and exhibitions during the school vacations, and as these are mostly offered on a drop-in basis, there is no need to book in advance.
Glasgow has a vibrant nightlife scene, with theaters, concert venues and restaurants all in the city center. Catch a pop concert at the Hydro, a classical recital at the Concert Hall, stand-up comedy in a local pub or have a meal in one of the city’s many restaurants close to your Glasgow vacation home. Friday and Saturday are the biggest nights for clubbing and going out, but midweek clubs are attracting increasing numbers by offering special drinks promotions or reduced entry charges.
