GLASGOW – EXPERIENCE SCOTLAND TO THE FULL!

Historic treasures, superb shopping and a cutting-edge cultural scene – Glasgow has all the ingredients for an incredible break! Renowned for its innovative architecture, the Radisson Blu Hotel is perfectly located in the city centre close to countless shops, fascinating museums, buzzing cafés and great nightlife. For soccer lovers, the Celtic and Ibrox stadiums are just a short distance from the hotel.

Glasgow was the centre of attention during the 2014 Commonwealth Games but there is a lot more to the city than sport. Here are six things to do in Glasgow.

  1. The best way to understand Glasgow is to take a tour – you can take a boat tour along the River Clyde or jump on one of the sightseeing buses and get an idea of the city’s history and culture. You can hop on and off or sit on the bus for a couple of hours while you take it all in. Most buses go from George Square a short walk from the hotel.
  2. Glasgow is famous for its night life so ask the hotel concierge for the best tips on which places to visit – from colourful cocktails to a quiet pint in a friendly pub or a couple of glasses of wine in a trendy bar – Glasgow won’t disappoint.
  3. If alcohol isn’t your thing then Glasgow has some of the best tea rooms in the country – particularly the Willow Tea Rooms designed by the city’s favourite architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Everything inside and out is designed by Mackintosh and the high-backed chairs are a delight to sit in and sip tea and eat delicious fresh cakes.
  4. The River Clyde has been regenerated in recent times and a lot of the Commonwealth Games’ events took place along its banks. Look out for the distinctive Armadillo and take a stroll along the shores – you’ll have fine views of both sides of the city and you can end up back at the hotel for a drink before dinner.
  5. Glasgow’s museums are a great way to spend an afternoon so head over to the university for the fine Kelvingrove Art Gallery, the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery for scientific artefacts or visit the Riverside Museum on the Clyde, which looks at travel and transport since the 1700s, including a trip on an old subway train and a step aboard a Tall Ship.
  6. Glasgow’s centre is a busy thriving hub of shops and cafes and you’ll enjoy exploring the main streets, but at the heart of the city is the Cathedral which dates back to the 13th century. The gothic architecture is in great condition and it holds the shrine of St Mungo too. It’s well worth a peaceful look inside.
