Things to see & do in Glasgow

Glasgow is a lively cosmopolitan city that is steeped in history. Evidence of the Glasgow Tobacco Lords who dominated the 18th century can still be seen in the city's stunning Victorian architecture today.

Art and culture are important in Glasgow life where galleries and museums are in abundance, most with free admission. A choice of over 20 includes the world's first Museum of Religion, Gallery of Modern Art, Kelvingrove Art Gallery,  Museum of Transport, the new Riverside Museum and the renowned Burrell Collection in Pollok Park.

Don't forget to visit Scotland's best known architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, whose work is visible throughout the city.  The shops, cafes and night life of Merchant City are a must for the discerning shopper. 

Glasgow is home to hundreds of pubs, clubs and exciting theatre venues. From musicals and pantomime at the Kings theatre, to the world's greatest rock and pop acts at the SECC and  THE brand new Hydro Arena, as well as classical venues like the Royal Concert Hall, there is something to suit all tastes. If you are looking for comedy check out what's on at The Stand, Glasgow's own comedy venue.

Around January 25th you will be spoilt for choice with Burn's Suppers,  music and poetry nights accompanied by traditional haggis, neeps and tatties, in celebration of the birth of Scotland's world famous bard.
