Let’s Explore Glasgow!
Now that the lockdown is finally coming to an end and the restrictions are getting lifted, it’s time to see what fun activities we can do with our friends around Glasgow!
Explore the Parks.
Glasgow has an array of beautiful parks. Kelvingrove and Queens Park being two incredible examples. Now that we can meet with more than one person and more than one household, why not gather your friends and go for a lovely day at the park. Get blankets and food for a picnic, card games, a frisbee and balls and make a day out of it. If you have pets, bring them along. Moreover, if you know how to roller blade or skate, bring your blades and skateboards. Have fun and teach your friends as well.
Visit Some Popular Buildings.
The Lighthouse, the City Chambers, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, and The Science Centre are just a few of Glasgow’s popular buildings.
The top of the Lighthouse, which offers a killer view of Glasgow, is accessible by stairs. There is an elevator but will only take you to a few levels and not the top. The Lighthouse is declared as Scotland’s centre of Design and Architecture. The way up is quite a long one, but every level is dedicated to architecture and pieces displayed at every floor definitely deserve your attention.
The City Chambers located across the street from George Square, have tours of the inside of the building every 30 minutes. It’s a nice stop, as it gives you a glimpse into the politics of the town and provides for a great and entertaining history lecture. Moreover, the rooms you are allowed to see are magnificent and the marble staircase is simply dreamy.
The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is located near Kelvingrove park. It is a gorgeous building inside and out. It’s both and Art Gallery and a museum, meaning that it contains some amazing art pieces and amazing exhibits.
The Science Centre. The kid in you will be grateful to visit the science centre. There are things to do in all of it’s 3 levels, from easy physics experiments to learning how your heart beats. Moreover, the science centre has a planetarium, and the shows, even though mostly directed at kids, are still a great watch and a great experience.
All places mention, except the Science Centre, have a free entrance.
Visit the People’s Palace and the Botanical Gardens.
The People’s Palace, located in Glasgow Green, and the Botanical Gardens, are both a great place to visit. They have an array of different flowers and they are especially great to visit during the spring and summer time.
Go to the Cinema.
Cineworld is located almost in the middle of the city. Once the cinemas re-open of course, a movie night with your friends will be a grand idea. You can grab your own snacks and pick a movie of your choice. Streaming services and projectors are great, but nothing can beat watching a movie in the cinema.
Dinner with the Duke.
After you’ve done your exploring around the city stop at a local restaurant or a fast-food place, grab yourself some dinner. Don’t forget to stop by the statue of the Duke of Wellington, before heading home and calling it a successful day.
