TOP PICKS

Buchanan Street Glasgow, Scotland

This is a great place to start exploring Glasgow - As the centre of the city, any way you go from here will lead somewhere new and exciting!

Architecture Museum (The Lighthouse)11 Mitchell Ln, Glasgow G1 3NU, UK

Gallery of Modern Art Royal Exchange Square G1 3AH, UK

While in Glasgow, we decided that rooftop hopping should be the new bar hopping! Starting at the Architecture Museum we went to the top of the lighthouse to get a stunning view of the city. Next, we headed to the Gallery of Modern Art where we made our way up to the 'glass room' (now an art workspace) with a gorgeous lookout space. 

St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Necropolis Cemetery  Castle St, Glasgow G4 0UZ, UK

Although a little way out of the city this cathedral and cemetery are worth the walk, bike or taxi. Founded in 1832 this cemetery is home to some of the oldest tombstones in Scotland.

When you get hungry on your way back into the city you can stop at Waxy O'Connors for some traditional pub fare. 

Waxy O'Connors 44 W George St, Glasgow G2 1DH, UK

Great for a quick lunch or late dinner, the Church-like gothic interior has 3 floors with 6 bars, ceilings that make you feel like you’re deep in the woods and colourful mosaics.

Local Picks

Bier Halle 9 Gordon Street, Glasgow, Lanarkshire G1 3PL, United Kingdom

Head down a dark stairwell of this unassuming restaurant front and find a pizza party in an underground beer hall! We loved this spot suggested by our friend born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland.
