Scotland - Glasgow Attractions, Hotels and Restaurants
Glasgow is the other of the two biggest and intriguing cities in Scotland. Its rich history and contribution to the world over the centuries demonstrates Glasgow is a city which has always punched above its weight. No trip to Glasgow is complete without a kilt of MacGregor & MacDuff. Our intern, Mark Zwerus, named a few attractions, hotels and restaurants.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum has over 8000 outstanding works from almost every famous artist in the world. You can walk around yourself or take a guided tour or an audio tour to get more information about the artist or the works.
The Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel
As the name suggests, the Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel is situated on the river Clyde. This very modern building tells the tales of our current ways of transport and how it got to the current state. Walk among the very first trains or take a look at the first bicycles.
In the center, on George’s Square, are the City Chambers. They still serve as the town hall even though they are over 100 years old. The interior reflects this perfectly as the building is furnished like it would have been 100 years ago. The tour guides are very enthusiastic and share everything with great interest.
Scotland Street School Museum
Designed by Charles Rennie Macintosh, The Scotland Street School Museum is one of the city’s architectural highlights. It tells the story of the rapid evolution and development of Scottish schools in the 20th century with a particular focus on classrooms and subjects
Tennents Wellpark Brewery
Tennents welcomes you into their very first, and still operational, brewery to take a look behind the scenes of a 450 year old beer. They take you on a tour through time to experience their exquisite brewing from long ago to the present day. See the machines up close while the tour guides explain what the machines do and how they evolved over the years.
Grand Central Hotel
Grand Central Hotel is a four star hotel in the middle of the city and every attraction in the city is within walking distance. The interior focusses mainly on elegance and that is clearly noticeable from the moment you set foot in the hotel. The rooms are exactly like that, very attractive and well appointed.
The four star ABode hotel is located within a roman building with lots of pillars. It is situated in the lively city center. The lobby is elegant and the old fashioned elevator is an exquisite touch. The rooms are very well decorated and very relaxing to make sure you can have the best experience.
The Sandyford Hotel
The Sandyford Hotel is a three star hotel and very close to the city centre. The rooms are decorated in a modern style and the lobby is appealing. The pillars in the middle of the lobby contribute to the style of the hotel. As an alternative to walking to and from the hotel, the HopOn bus stops just outside the hotel.
Glasgow is Edinburgh's edgier brother and, as such to stay in a Georgian townhouse, in the former red-light district, could make for an interesting dinner party conversation in the future. Once the clubhouse of the Royal Scottish Automobile Club, that spirit lives on in the hotel's chandeliered common areas, while bedrooms feature a blood red lampshade in the window - a cheeky nod to the neighbourhood's history.
Two Fat Ladies At The Buttery
The Two Fat Ladies A The Buttery offers more than a quirky name. The quality of the food is sublime (the roast supreme is one of my favourites) and the service is outstanding. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the waiters are dressed in traditional clothing.
The Western Club Restaurant
The Western Club is extraordinarily luxurious. The food is fantastic and I highly recommend the sirloin of Buccleuch beef. The quiet atmosphere makes this the ideal place for a calm and peaceful dinner in the city center of Glasgow.
Hutchesons City Grill
Hutchesons City Grill
Located inside a converted hospital, Hutchesons City Grill lets you eat your meal in style. The atmosphere is very relaxed and soothing and the knowledgeable staff put their heart and soul into the food, which is mostly beef.
