Where to Stay

Staying in the heart of the city gives you a good insight into Glaswegian life. Distinctive architecture, many of which was designed by local architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, defines Glasgow city centre. The bustling Buchanan Street combines contemporary shopping with amazing architecture - don’t forget to look up and admire the buildings above you! Glasgow’s distinctive West End neighbourhood, characterised by cobbled streets and Victorian architecture, lies just 2 miles from the city centre. The district is known for its strong cultural identity and hosts a number festivals each year including the Celtic Connections folk festival and the Bard In The Botanics outdoor Shakespeare festival. Despite the West End sharing most of the limelight, the East End is not without its charms. The ‘Barras’ street market attracts people from across the city and the Barrowland Ballroom is one Scotland’s most popular music venues.

Eating and Drinking

Glasgow city centre is famed for its wide range of eating options. One of the most famous of these is Bothy, a traditional Scottish restaurant serving up local delicacies. Bar 91 also serves excellent food and is a great place to people watch from – in the summer you can sit and eat outside. Wee’s Curry Shop sell homemade curries and is a favourite amongst locals. Glaswegians like things deep fried and the local delicacy is deep fried pizza – it’s surprisingly good! Deep fried Mars bars, however, are not for the faint hearted. Glasgow is also famous for its nightlife and there are lots of bars, pubs and music venues. King Tuts Wah Wah Hut is a well-known gig venue and hosts live music every night of the week. Uisge Beatha is an atmospheric and quirky place where you can enjoy a drink next to stuffed animal heads and portraits of nobles on the walls.

Getting Around

Glasgow is an easy city to explore on foot or with the bus. There are many bus routes and taxis so you should have no problem navigating the city and finding all the main attractions. A scenic and more alternative way to see the city is with the River Link ferry which operates during the summer along the River Clyde. The underground system in Glasgow is probably one of the easiest city underground systems to navigate of all major city centres; it is just one ring, serving North, East, South and West, referred to by locals as the “Clockwork Orange”. A one way ticket will cost you £1.60 flat fare and £3 for two journeys. Located six miles west of the city, Glasgow International Airport is Scotland’s biggest airport. It has never been easier to get into the city centre from the airport. Simply take the airport shuttle bus which travels straight to the centre in only 25 minutes.
