Gallivanting in Glasgow
Venture to Scotland’s biggest city – full of friendly faces and a blend of history, culture and creativity. First of all, the city is a cultural hotspot. In Glasgow, you can stumble across masterpieces of art without stepping foot inside an art gallery. With murals laced across the city, you’ll find street art adorning walls in unexpected nooks and crannies. Take it all in along the Glasgow City Mural Trail.
Whether its beer or coffee you’re looking for, Glasgow’s East End is the place for you. Head to Tennent’s Wellpark Brewery for a tour of the brewery which makes Scotland’s favourite pint, or to the local favourite Dear Green Coffee Roasters for a delicious brew.
Glasgow's public spaces are a pleasure to explore during the autumn months, with lots of beautiful places to admire the vibrant, changing colours. In Kelvingrove Park, stroll along walking trails and admire statues dotted throughout the park, and look out for the West End’s impressive gothic University of Glasgow buildings.
It’s one of the UK’s most vegan friendly cities too, with lots of vegan and veggie friendly pubs, restaurants and cafés to choose from. Head to the 78, Mono or Stereo and see what meat-free delights there are to try.
Don’t miss exciting festivals this winter, including Glasgow’s Christmas, where you can enjoy food markets, stalls and festive performances across the city. In the New Year, don’t miss Celtic Connections, a two-week celebration of traditional music from 16 January – 2 February 2020.
