Glasgow a go-go: nonstop fun, culture, and heritage

Rich in history and modern charm, Glasgow is a hip and lively Scottish destination. Booking a Glasgow vacation rental gives you instant access to cosmopolitan Europe at its best, including its many museums, shops, historic attractions, and natural wonders. Whether you favor a bit of glamor or arts and culture, you'll find much to explore in this heritage-rich city known as much for its hidden gems as its well-known sites, like the shimmering River Clyde. Traveling solo, with friends, or with family, you'll find that Glasgow offers activities and entertainment for everyone.

Things to do

Take me to church—and maybe the cemetery, too

You don't book a Glasgow vacation rental without vowing to visit the Glasgow Cathedral. This 12th-century marvel is an amazing example of medieval architecture. If you're all about modern life, a visit to the Riverside Museum celebrates history with techy twists—think old-world cars mingling with interactive exhibits. Over 8,000 exhibits are on display at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, while the Gallery of Modern Art features hip contemporary works in a bold mansion. Don't let the Glasgow Necropolis scare you—this Victorian cemetery features thousands of stunning monuments.

Activities

Rock on, hipsters, history lovers, and hop-on tour lovers

Glasgow epitomizes cool, and 1 of the best ways to experience that chill is by cruising down the Clyde. The wind in your hair, you'll admire amazing views of castles and historic shipyards. It's also an UNESCO City of Music, which means there's always a concert happening somewhere. Pop over to the hipster-friendly West End for lively pubs and retro cocktail bars. This area also houses charming vintage boutiques, antique shops, and lush gardens. Of course, a hop-on, hop-off bus tour is essential if you're new to the city and need the scoop on all things Glasgow.

Weather

Things are getting seriously cool in Glasgow

Glasgow is cool but not exactly cold. Winter temperatures rarely dip below freezing, and even when they do it's very brief. Sure, you should pack a parka, but don't expect much snowfall. Spring is equally mild, while summer is interesting in its mood swings. One day may be bright and warm, the next will find you reaching for a jacket and an umbrella. In other words, prepare for everything. If you book a Glasgow vacation rental in the fall, you'll enjoy a similar mixed bag of cool days and lovely sunny days.

Natural features

Naturally, Glasgow's got that wild, wild life

Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and has loads of charm that allows the city's natural beauty to shine. The most significant is the River Clyde, the third-longest river in the country. Thanks to its significant depth, the river helped establish Glasgow as a major shipbuilding town. Head to Victoria Park and you can glimpse a bit of prehistory—fossilized tree stumps cast in sandstone. Visible from April through September, they were discovered in 1887. Visit a nearby beach and you might even spot a peregrine soaring above.
