Stay

From modern to traditional and everything in between, no matter what kind of accommodation suits you, Glasgow has it.

Choose from five-star luxury, budget hotels, welcoming B&Bs or quirky city pads like Native in the former headquarters of the Anchor Line shipping company. Further afield, discover rural retreats such as the opulent Crossbasket Castle Hotel for a real dose of indulgence.

Eat

The biggest challenge you’ll have when eating out in Glasgow is trying to decide where to go! Explore the city and you’ll find culinary delights from across the world as well as some of the finest Scottish cuisine.

Don’t miss A’Challtainn’s £1 oyster happy hour every Friday, head to Platform at Argyle Street Arches for some of the best street food around, or pay a pilgrimage to one of Glasgow’s oldest and best-loved eateries, Rogano.

Drink

Thirsty? Enjoy a tour (and dram) at Clydeside Distillery, refuel with a pint at WEST Brewery, or sample a local tipple from Wester Spirit Co. – a Glasgow Spiced Rum.

In the West End, Ashton Lane, just round the corner from Hillhead subway station, is lined with quirky pubs. Down the steps from Great Western Road, on the banks of the River Kelvin, Inn Deep serves a mouthwatering range of craft beers.

See

Celtic Connections returns in January and this year, includes Coastal Connections: a one-off celebration of Scotland’s Year of Coast and Waters.

An ocean-themed festival-within-a-festival, it showcases musicians, including Skerryvore and Julie Fowlis, from 20 islands, coasts and peninsulas.

Use the subway to explore the eclectic mix of neighbourhoods across the city or hop on the train to Renfrewshire to explore the tranquil yet imposing Paisley Abbey. You might even discover its underground secret…
