Accommodation options for your holiday in Glasgow
Book a Glasgow holiday apartment, cottage or letting for a fun-filled city break
“People Make Glasgow” is a phrase you’ll see everywhere on your trip, and it sums up perfectly what you can expect from a Glasgow holiday. The city has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the UK’s friendliest cities. Whether your interests are cultural, athletic, shopping or food-related, when you book holiday accommodation in Glasgow, you'll find plenty to discover.
Holiday lettings are the perfect base to discover the gastronomic delights of this city, which is filled with restaurants, some of which are located in beautiful Victorian buildings. A taste of Glasgow will soon have you coming back for more.
What to eat on your Glasgow holiday
Some of Scotland's gastronomic creations have become international staples, such as its buttery shortbread biscuits, or its excellent selection of whiskies. However, there are also lesser known Scottish culinary traditions, some of which are an acquired taste, and you will find them all in Glasgow.
From your holiday apartment, wander down Argyle Street to find restaurants serving classic haggis, neeps, and tatties. This classic Scottish dish provides a filling meal of mashed potatoes (tatties), turnips (neeps) and, of course, haggis, which is a sheep's stomach stuffed with other sheep offal.
From the football grounds to fine wine bars, there is nothing the people of Glasgow love more than a Scotch pie. This small pie stuffed with flavourful minced meat is served across the city. If you're in the mood for a variation, try the popular macaroni pie, which is macaroni and cheese in a pie.
Glasgow has also come up with some new decadent recipes in the past decades, and one of these is the infamous deep-fried Mars bar. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! The melting, gooey, chocolatey, crispy delights are available in any chip shop in the city.
Glasgow also knows how to do drinks. Try a refreshing Bearface Lager or Gladeye IPA from Glasgow’s very own Drygate Brewery. The perfect way to start an evening before heading out to explore the city's thrumming nightlife.
What to see in Glasgow
Glasgow is a compact city, so holiday apartments in the Glasgow city centre are always close to major attractions. Start in George Square and explore on foot, taking in the shopping thoroughfare of Buchanan Street, the famous Mackintosh School of Art, the river Clyde and the elegant buildings of the Merchant City, a throwback to Glasgow’s past as a major port city.
Or take a stroll along the river back to Glasgow's shipbuilding past and see the enormous Finnieston crane, before a visit to one of the city's many parks, such as Glasgow Green or the Botanic Gardens.
Art and culture in Glasgow
On top of many visitors’ lists is the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery in the West End, which is home to world-class artwork and artefacts which tell the story of Glasgow’s industrial past. Visit at lunchtime to hear free organ recitals in the main hall. If modern art is more your thing, visit the Museum Of Modern Art in Royal Exchange Square.
Glasgow's theatres and concert halls have a wide programme of performances right through the year. Although a little out of town on the south side of the city, the Glasgow Museums Resource Centre stores items which cannot currently be displayed, and runs regular guided tours and workshops, as well as interactive events for families every weekend. Booking in advance is essential, and you will need a car to get there from most Glasgow holiday letting.
Holidays with kids in Glasgow
Planning a family holiday? You'll find plenty to do in Glasgow with children. Don’t miss the superb Riverside Museum and Tall Ship, which have been designed especially with kids in mind and provide great fun for a family holiday. The Botanic Gardens or Kelvingrove Park have lots of space for running and letting off steam, whatever the weather.
The Science Centre beside the river offers hands-on science experiments and shows for children of all ages. Glasgow's museums always put on special workshops, events and exhibitions during the school holidays, and as these are mostly offered on a drop-in basis, there is no need to book in advance.
Nightlife in Glasgow
Glasgow has a vibrant nightlife scene, with theatres, concert venues and restaurants all in the city centre. Catch a pop concert at the Hydro, forward-thinking electronic music at Sub Club, a classical recital at the Concert Hall, or stand-up comedy in a local pub - whatever your preferences, you're sure to have a great night! Friday and Saturday are the biggest nights for clubbing and going out, but midweek clubs are attracting increasing numbers by offering special drinks promotions or reduced entry charges.
Day trips from Glasgow
Edinburgh is just an hour away from Glasgow by road or train, so you can easily do a day trip there from your Glasgow holiday apartment. Alternatively, why not go down the coast to Largs or Ayr? Loch Lomond is 30 minutes north of Glasgow and has stunning scenery and walks for more energetic visitors.
A little further afield are Aberfoyle, gateway to the Highlands, and Perth, the ancient capital of Scotland. Glasgow is very well-connected to the rest of Scotland and the UK, which makes taking excursions from Glasgow holiday lettings very straightforward. Scotland offers so much to see and do that it's important to do your research before leaving home - you just won't have time to see everything available.
