Book a Glasgow holiday apartment or cottage 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.

How to get to Glasgow
Glasgow is served by a local airport with regular flights from Europe and North America. Driving from the airport into the city will take 20 minutes, or hop on one of the frequent shuttle buses outside the terminal.
By train, Glasgow is less than five hours from London, and it'has good links to the rest of the UK motorway network for easy arrival by car. The M8 motorway runs right through the heart of the city, making travel from your Glasgow holiday lettingaround the city very straightforward.
The city has both an underground and overground rail network, and efficient bus services, so wherever you stay you'll be within easy reach of the city's attractions.
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 lettings.
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.
