The gorgeous Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum hosts one of Europe’s greatest art collections including a permanent exhibition dedicated to local boy, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style Gallery. The Burrell Collection sits at the heart of Pollock County Park and features gorgeous tapestries and stained glass- all for free. Sports fans can take a trip to the Scottish Football Museum for a taste of local heritage and love of the beautiful game.
Book your Glasgow hotel in the city centre and you’ll be a stone’s throw from contemporary and historic architecture. We love the Victorian splendour of Glasgow Central Station and Central Hotel, which was designed by Edinburgh based architect, Robert Rowand Anderson. A few doors down is the former Glasgow Herald Building, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. In the summer of 2014, the Glasgow School of Art suffered a fire, but it’s still worth visiting this majestic building.
Legendary live music
Glasgow has long been known for an incredible live music scene, rising up in the 80s and 90s with acts like New Order regularly performing. Now, the O2 Academy Glasgow, The SECC and Barrowlandfeature headline acts throughout the year. Make sure you book a cheap Glasgow hotel within walking distance of the venue to get the most out of your night.
Big nights out
A night out in Glasgow can include trips to the King’s Theatre and Theatre Royal, with hit shows including Saturday Night Fever and Top Hat. Locals rate King Tut’sas the best nightclub in Glasgow, or even Scotland, with live DJ sets until the early hours on weekends, while fans of alternative music should head to Cathouse for punk and metal. Òran Mór on Byres road is an excellent pub that was once a parish church, while Blackfriars on Bell Streethas won Camra’s Glasgow Pub of the Year twice.
Passion for sport
Home to Ibrox Stadium, Celtic Park and Hampden Park, a love of football runs in Glaswegian blood. Tour the stadiums or grab tickets to a match. Whether you’re supporting Rangers or Celtic, be sure to wear the right colours and cheer as loud as the locals. While there aren’t too many hotels in Glasgow near the stadiums, there are lots just a short bus trip away.
