Flights to Glasgow

Glasgow is regularly named among the top destinations to visit in the UK and it’s easy to see why. Scotland’s largest city might not be the capital – that’s Edinburgh, on the east coast – but it’s certainly a capital of culture. Flights to Glasgow will help you understand why the city is renowned for its vibrant creative arts and music scene, as well as some of the best restaurants, lounges, and live music venues in the world.

Glasgow city centre, known as the Merchant City, is home to some the best places to eat, drink and shop in Europe – including the impressive shopping mall, the St Enoch Centre. There are markets, museums and art galleries everywhere, including the beautiful Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, and lots of traditional eateries offering a warming ambience when the weather gets chilly. These cosy nooks are also good spots to try local dishes, such as haggis with ‘tatties and neaps’ (potatoes and turnips) and ‘cock-a-leekie’ (chicken and leek) soup.

As one of the finest Victorian cities in Great Britain, the city is rich in history too. You can stroll along the River Clyde and soak up Glasgow’s maritime past, before stopping along the waterfront for a coffee. For sports fans, Glasgow is home to not one but two historic football teams – Celtic and Rangers – one of the oldest and greatest rivalries in club football, the Old Firm derby.

This passion extends beyond the sporting arena: the city is proud of its past and its traditions, but is also always looking ahead to the future. And as brilliant as the place is, it’s really the people who make Glasgow. Scots are nothing if not convivial, and Glaswegians bring a charm that’s as unique as it is appealing.

What to do in Glasgow

Relax in Pollock Country Park

Just a 10-minute train ride from Glasow's city centre you'll find the award-winning Pollock Country Park, 140 acres of lush lawns and gardens. It regularly hosts community events such as dray rides and organised sunrise walks, and boasts the Pollock House, an 18th century home with an impressive art collection.

The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, home to almost 10,000 pieces, is the most visited attraction in the UK outside London, and admission is free.
