If you're thinking of booking a hotel near Hampden Park in Glasgow why not catch a match at the home of the national football team or a concert? The venue hosts gigs by many major acts.
Take a tour of the iconic stadium and get the full Hampden Experience. The venue promises one of the best football museums in the world with more than 2,500 exhibits on display in 14 galleries. A visit also includes an informative guided tour of the stadium, entrance to the Scottish Football Hall of Fame and Hampden Hotshots, the chance for every visitor to score a goal at the ground.
Arts and culture
Glasgow is famed for the number and quality of its art collections. One of the least-feted is St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art which is built on the site of a medieval castle complex.
The venue displays exhibits relating to all the world's religions. Home to Salvador Dali's famous painting Christ of Saint John on the Cross, it also has a Zen Garden and Islamic calligraphy.
And why not catch a concert by the acclaimed Royal Scottish National Orchestra at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall or a chamber music recital at Pollok House?
Things to see and do
Step back in time at the city's oldest building, the medieval Provand's Lordship, an historic house and museum located at the top of Castle Street. The building is likely to have housed clergy. And nearby is Glasgow Cathedral which largely dates from the 15th century. The building is imposing with a Gothic gloom lightened by stunning modern stained glass windows. And don't miss the crypt, a forest of pillars that surround the tomb of St Mungo, the destination of many a pilgrimage.
Also well worth checking out is the Riverside Museum, a modern museum a short bus or boat ride from the city centre. The substantive part of its collections is a dedicated to transport and includes cars made in Scotland as well as railway locomotives and trams and models of Clyde-built ships.
Eating and drinking
Glasgow has plenty to tempt the taste buds. Sample seasonal Scottish produce skilfully prepared at Fanny Trollopes, a compact bistro in Argyle Street. Or Number 16, an award-winning restaurant at the heart of the West End. And for a drink head to riverside bar Inn Deep which has great beers.
