There is no better way to enjoy a city and get your bearings than to just wander the streets and take in the sights and sounds. Living Walks virtual walking tour takes in Glasgow’s city centre including Buchanan Street, Scotland’s ‘Style Mile’, George Square, Merchant City and a whole host of other hidden gems.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery
One of Scotland’s most popular visitor attractions, Kelvingrove Art Gallery is a must for any Glasgow itinerary. Located in the city’s trendy Finnieston area, the museum is home to works from some of the world’s most well-known artists, including Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt and Salvador Dalí. This short introduction will certainly whet your appetite for more.
The imposing Victorian graveyard may be a left-field choice, but for film buffs out there, the Necropolis recently welcomed Gotham’s caped crusader, as filming for the new Batman film took place in February 2020. Enjoy a walking tour around the Necropolis to get a feel for it.
Ashton Lane Glasgow
We are all dreaming of summer nights, bar hopping and beer gardens, so why not check out one of Glasgow’s hippest areas to grab a drink and watch the world go by. Situated on a cobbled backstreet in the West End of Glasgow, the famous Ashton Lane has a number of bars, restaurants and even a boutique cinema. Take a virtual wander through and see what all the fuss is about – homemade cocktail in hand, of course…
Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens is located in the heart of the city’s west end and is a firm favourite with visitors and Glaswegians alike. Whilst we can socially distance and enjoy the parklands and riverside walks, normally you would also be able to experience the wonderful Kibble Palace. The iconic glasshouse is home to a magnificent collection of trees, plants and greenery – thankfully you can visit virtually to get your plant fix.
