Attractions and Places to Visit in Glasgow

Well known for its beautiful, thriving shopping districts and the culture that it has to offer, Glasgow attracts a large number of tourists every year. Glasgow offers lots of exciting experiences, and you can start with the city's iconic buildings. Take a walk through the city's museums and galleries to find everything from Dinosaurs to Dali, and a tour of the historic City Chambers and magnificent Glasgow Cathedral. Football fans will also undoubtedly want to take a look behind the scenes of Scotland's national stadium at the The Scottish Football Museum, and take tours of the world famous Celtic and Rangers Football Clubs, taking in all of these iconic sporting venues.

Mackintosh lovers will find The Willow Tea Rooms, The Lighthouse, House for an Art Lover, and the Glasgow School of Art to be must-visits, with the Hard Rock Cafe nearby to provide a stop-off. There's also plenty to do for families, with Loch Lomond Aquarium and Snow Factor just a short distance away from the city.

For something a little bit different, why not head over to Glasgow Science Centre or the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery to find fascinating exhibitions and collections, or step aboard the Tall Ship, an icon of Glasgow's ship-building heritage still afloat to this day!

Perhaps one of the most enjoyable things to do in Glasgow is to simply look up and feast your eyes on the city's mix of striking architecture styles as you wander around. But if it's a day to be indoors, then you're in luck, because there are fascinating museums, diverse art galleries and creative spaces aplenty!
