Glasgow is a city of contrasts, with a great deal of variety to suit solo travellers, couples and families. It's also a great city to explore on foot, with a whopping 90 green spaces. Why not buy a ticket for one of the many sightseeing buses so that you can hop on and off at will or take the city subway with a weekend ticket for easy riding. A good first stop is the Kelvingrove Museum which is packed with 8,000 unique exhibits including the ever-popular dinosaur bones! Check out the history and culture and then have a wander around the beautiful park next door, before visiting trendy Byres Road for refreshments at one of the many cafes, bars and restaurants. The Riverside Museum is another great spot for culture and education, spanning transport and modern architecture, and if you're feeling in the mood for entertainment afterwards, head into the city centre for its excellent retail offer, or out to Celtic Park for a match! A walk along The Clyde is a must, and the city's various music venues are essential in the evening - perhaps after a whiskey tasting or cocktail-making experience. Glaswegians love to party, and you'll find plenty of pubs with live music, as well as famous nightclubs across Argyle Street, Merchant City, the West End and Sauchiehall Street.
When you need a hotel Glasgow doesn't disappoint. Many visitors choose to stay in the city centre itself to be in walking distance of key attractions such as the Theatre Royal and Concert Hall, Cathedral, George Square and the main shopping district. The waterfront is also a great spot if you fancy exploring the Science Centre or head to properties close to Glasgow Green and the Winter Garden. If world-class bars and high-end restaurants take your fancy, consider looking to book a hotel in the West End or head to the hipster hotspot of Finnieston. It's packed with boutique hotels and trendy entertainment venues. Other good districts to consider for cheap hotels include Shawlands, Hillhead and Scotstoun. Just book well in advance if you are planning to travel in high season, or when big events such as the Celtic Connections Music Festival or important sports matches are taking place in town.
