For travellers and couples looking for a romantic getaway, Scotland’s largest city offers an attractive combination of breathtaking Victorian architecture and a vibrant arts scene. Highlights include the dazzling Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, home to a vast array of themed galleries and the large modern concert venues in the Pacific Quay area. There’s no shortage of things to do in this energetic city.
Something for Any Couple
With a lively social atmosphere and some of the best UK shopping outside London, Glasgow is a great place to book a weekend away. Hotels range from the hospitable and cosy to the positively hedonistic – there is something to suit any couple. The city is easy to navigate and well connected to other parts of the UK.
Glasgow has many charming parks and vistas for those looking to relax and slow down. A wander along the Great Western Road to the Botanic Gardens offers beautiful tree-lined avenues and several stunning glasshouses bursting with gorgeous plants and flowers. The garden’s Heritage Trail is a great way to fill a sunny afternoon.
For a busier walk taking in some of Glasgow’s beautiful historic architecture, as well some shopping, take Glasgow’s subway ‘the clockwork orange’ to the George Square area. This area is close to prime shopping spots such as Buchanan Street and Merchant City.
