Things to see and do in Glasgow
Glasgow has garnered an increasingly lofty reputation as a cultural hotspot in recent years. You can delve into the city’s rich culture by visiting places like the Gallery of Modern Art, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the hands-on Riverside Museum. Glasgow Green, George Square and Glasgow Cathedral are all great spots to visit, along with the interactive Glasgow Science Centre.
If your idea of top culture is hitting the shops, head to Buchanan Street where you can enjoy a bite to eat and a drink at one of the many bars, restaurants and cafes after you’ve hit the stores. Should sport be your culture of choice, pick a side in the Old Firm rivalry and head to either Ibrox or Celtic Park to see Rangers or Celtic in action. And to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, don’t miss open spaces such as Cathkin Braes Country Park, Pollock Country Park and Seven Lochs Wetland Park.
As you’d probably expect with such a big city, there are plenty of excellent schools in and around Glasgow for your kids to attend. Older children can go to institutions such as Hillhead High School which is in the west of the city by Kelvingrove Park. There’s a primary school opposite which has received an excellent inspection report from Education Scotland and could be a great choice for your little ones. The West End is also a good place to live for being within catchment areas for top performing schools like Hyndland Secondary School and Jordanhill School.
