Experience Glasgow with us

Edgy, down to earth and lively is how many would describe Scotland’s largest city. Once known for its gangs, slums and industrial dereliction, a cultural renaissance over the past few decades has ensured today’s city is far from the Glasgow written in the history books. Luxury hotels, killer cuisine, and cutting-edge creative industries thrive here, while its close proximity to the beautiful natural surrounds beyond the city is also a selling point.

Our tips for Glasgow

Our tips
  • Head to the highlands. Take a Glasgow day trip to the Scottish Highlands and you’ll be greeted with craggy peaks, beach hideaways and lochs at every turn. When considering the things to do in Glasgow and beyond, a tour of this epic region is a must.
  • Say your prayers at the Glasgow Cathedral. An astounding example of Gothic architecture and the only mainland Scottish cathedral to survive the Reformation intact, this cathedral is well worth a visit. This Glasgow attraction is also the final resting place of the city’s patron saint, St Mungo.
  • Have a wee blether. We can’t speak for everyone, but on the whole, Glaswegians love a good chin-wag. Don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation, the best way to get to know a city is through its locals.

Good to know

Best time to visit
Avoid Glasgow in the bitter winter months when cold and short days rule. Instead, plan your Glasgow sightseeing adventures for the warmer months between March and August. Budget airlines servicing routes to and from Glasgow airport have thankfully lowered travel costs significantly in the past few years, with travel to the city now relatively affordable year-round.
Getting around
Finding your way around Scotland’s largest city can prove testing. Keep these travel tips handy and you’ll be navigating your way through Glasgow in no time.
  • For Glasgow day tours outside of the city, a hire-car can be helpful. For those happy to stay put and considering what to do in Glasgow only, a car really isn’t necessary.
  • With frequent buses and an accessible metro system, Glasgow is an easy – and affordable – city to explore. On your Glasgow tours we recommend grabbing a FirstDay pass for a full day of travel on the city's First bus network.
Stay Safe
Glasgow is a relatively safe city but it’s always best to keep your wits about you in a new place. Keep these tips in mind when travelling in Glasgow…
  • In case of emergency, dial 999.
  • Glasgow’s ample green spaces such as Kelvingrove Park are lovely throughout the day, but have no lighting in the evening in order to protect wildlife. Walking in the parks after dusk should be avoided.
  • As always, keep your personal belongings safe and secure when in busy areas or known tourist sites. It’s best to divide up your valuables between bags and wallets.
