10 best things to do in Glasgow, Scotland

A city often overlooked by the capital of Scotland Edinburgh. Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland offering a lot to do and explore alongside having something for everyone on offer.

With plenty of culture, parks and historic buildings, you are spoiled for choice on what you can do in here. Even though it may be the biggest city in Scotland getting around is super easy with most the sites across this city being in close walking distance.

Don’t let the British weather put you off either with plenty of indoor activities across the city as well as the ones outdoors.

Botanic Gardens

Walking through the Botanic Garden and Kibble Place you will be transported into a jungle with a range of tropical plants and trees.

While there you can also take a stroll through the surrounding outdoor garden park that Kimble place itself is found as well as a walk along the River Kelvin which is found nearby.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

If you get chance to visit Kelvingrove park then walking round to visit the art gallery and museum is one I would recommend, with plenty to see here and if needed a chance to escape that British weather.

Art Mural Trail

If you head into the main city centre you may notice a few pieces of street art on the side of some of the buildings, this is part of the cities art mural trail which goes across the city centre making for some great shots too!

Kelvingrove Park

If taking a relaxing stroll through the parks is your thing then Kelvingrove park is one you will need to do, with plenty paths and a lake in the park summer stroll should be on the list, if visiting in winter the lake can freeze over giving you change to go ice skating.

Necropolis and Cathedral

Taking a walk around this beautiful cathedral is something you don’t want to miss out on with its stunning gothic architecture.

When in the area taking a walk up to the Necropolis and walking through the grounds, w nowhile going to an old cemetery may seem like an odd thing to do when visiting the city the views from the top are something you will want to witness.

People’s Place and Glasgow Green

The People’s Place and Glasgow green are great if you want to just walk around the park or fancy a trip to the museum, you will also find the Winter Gardens if you fancy going and checking out some more tropical plants.

Clydeside Distillery

What would a trip to Scotland be without a distillery tour?

Lucky Glasgow has one right in the bank of the River Clyde in the city centre. Take a tour around this distillery and try some of the single malt whisky they have to offer.

George’s Square

Head down to Georges square, but keep an eye out for the famous Duke of Wellington statue, the people of Glasgow are known for having a sense of humour with this statute showing it.

I won’t say too much and leave this location up to you to find out about when you visit.

Science Centre

If you are a science lover then the science museum found along the River Cylde is something you will want to do while in Glasgow.

Hunterian Art Gallery and Museum

Found at the University this museum and art gallery holds a lot of history about the city. It is also the oldest museum in Scotland so why else wouldn’t you want to visit this place of wonder.
