Glasgow Science Center, Scotland

Stay at a Glasgow hotel to marvel at Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s delicate interior designs and retrace Victorian steps past rich, red sandstone buildings.

Historic Glasgow

Traders used to sell fruit in the 1800s Merchant Square. Nowadays trinkets and crafts are peddled in front of the face-lifted Victorian façades at Merchant City Market. Follow Georgian townhouses from your Glasgow hotel to George Square where Queen Vic’s majestic City Chambers mimics the lavish Renaissance.

Art and museums in Glasgow

Billy Connolly’s 1970s banana boots make a celebrity appearance at the People’s Palace social history museum on Glasgow Green. Four-wheeled vehicles, from prams to caravans, are on display at the Museum of Transport, while giant African land snails reside under the Glasgow Science Centre’s titanium shell. Monet, Van Gogh and Dali decorate the interior of the red sandstone Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

Quirky things to do in Glasgow

Scottish boiled sweets, soor plooms and lucky tatties are measured out at Glickman’s old-fashioned sweet shop on London Road. Every last detail, down to the teaspoons and waitresses’ outfits, was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in the Art Deco Willow Tea Rooms on Sauchiehall Street.

Events in Glasgow

Camp out in autumn for the rainbow-coloured Glasgay! arts festival, when Merchant City bars and the Glasgow Film Theatre buzz. Book a hotel in Glasgow for the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, which hosts side-splitting stand-up and Carry On cinema throughout March.
