Top Attractions


Glasgow offers lots of exciting experiences, but where to begin?

You could start with the city's iconic buildings, first taking a walk through the city's museums and galleries to find everything from Dinosaurs to Dali, and a tour of the historic City Chambers and magnificent Glasgow Cathedral, situated beside one of the most significant cemetaries in Europe, The Necropolis.

Football fans will also undoubtedly want to take a look behind the scenes of Scotland's national stadium at The Hampden Experience, and take tours of the world famous Celtic and Rangers Football Clubs, taking in each of these iconic sporting venues.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh lovers will find Mackintosh at the Willow, The Lighthouse, House for an Art Lover and The Willow Tea Rooms must-visits to view the indelible architecture, furniture and style of Glasgow’s most famous son. As a University city, it is no surprise that the campus' of such prestigious institutions are worth visiting, whether Mackintosh's masterpiece, the Glasgow School of Art or the University of Glasgow, which is described as a real-life Hogwarts. 

There's also plenty to do for families, with fascinating exhibits and interactive shows at the Glasgow Science Centre on the River Clyde, whilst Loch Lomond Aquarium and Snow Factor are just a short distance away from the city.  

For something a little bit different, why not head over to the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery for historic finds within Scotland's oldest museum, step aboard the Tall Ship, an icon of Glasgow's shipbuilding heritage still afloat to this day, or visit Glasgow Tigers Speedway for fast and furious entertainment on two wheels.

Looking to explore more of Scotland? Glasgow is the gateway to Scotland's magnificient landscapes and you'll be able to discover Scotland's rich heritage on Rabbie's Small Group Tours and Timberbush Tours, which regularly set off from the city centre to destinations across the country. Or take to the water for a Sweeney's Cruise Co. at Loch Lomond.

Whisky lovers will relish a tour of Glengoyne Distillery and The Clydeside Distillery, whilst Tennent's Wellpark Brewery presents a fascinating look into the history and success of Scotland's oldest brewery.

To top it off, all of our attractions are supported by a great network of tourist transport - so why not see it all on an open-topped tourist bus, hopping on and off as many times as you like?
