The rich history of Glasgow makes it a great location for a variety of must-see landmarks. Check out City Chambers in George Square to admire the building’s stunning architecture, interior design and marble staircase. Another landmark not to miss is The Lighthouse, the national centre for art and design, before climbing the Mackintosh Tower for a breathtaking view of the city.

See a Great Show

What better way to keep everyone entertained than by attending a great film showing or theatre performance? Have lunch while enjoying a theater show at A Play, A Pie, and a Pint, or visit the Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre for a performance from figures creatively made out of scrap metal. The Glasgow Film Theatre or a screening at the IMAX are also great options.
