The thriving city offers a variety of hotels with spa facilities, swimming pools and gym complexes within walking distance of its famous landmarks.
Looking to shop till you drop? Glasgow has some of the best shopping in the UK outside of London and the city centre is bustling with big brand names and stylish boutiques.
Buchanan Street, Glasgow’s main shopping area, has an excellent range of shops – its well-maintained pedestrianized layout gives it a laidback atmosphere. Nearby Sauchiehall Street offers a similar experience, with street performances and bagpipers not uncommon occurrences. For a stylish shopping mall, travellers should head to Princes Square.
A short walk from the city centre is Barras Market. Awash with local banter and thrifty traders, you will find stalls selling bargain items from shoes to flowers. Designer names need not apply!
After a hard day’s shopping, why not chill out by the swimming pool, before heading to the trendy bars and rustic pubs in the Merchant City area for a bite to eat and a local craft beer.
