Glasgow — Tour Highlights and Travel Tips
- The Merchant District is one of the best places to visit on Glasgow tours. This area full of former warehouses is now home to trendy cafés, restaurants and boutiques.
- Glasgow is famed for its luscious green landscape. Enjoy a family picnic on a sunny afternoon in one of its 70 parks.
- Glasgow Cathedral is one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in the United Kingdom and should not be missed on your Glasgow trip.

- A walk by the Glasgow riverfront will take you to some of the city’s top architectural highlights such as Bell’s Bridge and the Scottish Event Campus (SEC).
- Glasgow tours do not need to focus exclusively on the city itself. Take a trip to the various lakes in the region, head north to the fascinating Highlands, or visit beautiful Edinburgh.
- If you fly into Glasgow International Airport, take bus number 77 into the city center. It is slower than the airport shuttle, but costs less and will give you your first local Glasgow experience.
- Pubs in Glasgow offer great food for cheaper prices than restaurants. If you are on a budget, pop into one of the hundreds of city pubs for some drinks and food.
