Discovering Glasgow: Ultimate Family Attractions


Travelling with kids can be a bit of a chore sometimes, particularly when you want to enjoy the art, history and culture and your children just want to have fun. Sometimes, a compromise is required, which is why it’s always handy to research the local fun family attractions before you set off on your visit to your city of choice.

Although Glasgow is largely visited for its beauty, architecture and bohemian nature, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything that can be fun for all the family. By booking a family room in one of the Glasgow hotels, you can be sure that your Scottish city break will be suitable for you and your children, making it an escape to remember for all.

If an educational day out is what you’re searching for, look no further than the Glasgow Space Centre. Jam packed with wonderment and new experiences, you and your family can enjoy a multitude of interactive displays, exhibitions and science shows. Experience the Mindworks zone, the Alice in Wonderland exhibition or take advantage of the vast array of events planned throughout November and December. Full of engagement and challenge, the Science Mall also houses the top of the range planetarium which needs to be seen to be believed. After all the fun of science, why not make your way to the adjacent IMAX cinema for a tub of popcorn and the latest new release family film?

Perfect for little ones, Tollcross Children’s Farm is a more chilled out, at-one-with-nature affair where you can get up close and personal with farmyard animals as well as conquering your phobias in the insect room. Tollcross provides a wonderful, relaxing day out for everyone if you don’t want to spend the entire time in the city.

Compete with your family with the futuristic Laser Station gaming experience. Fun for all, where else can you go to shoot aliens that are trying to take over the Earth? Sticking with challenging sports and games, be sure to check out Xscape if you fancy a day on the slopes. Located in Braehead, this indoor activity centre will help your kids burn off some energy with its indoor ski slope. Sign up for a tuition class and master the snow plough, or if you’re more accustomed to the sport, just go for it. Also in the complex, you can enjoy rock climbing, adventure golf, bowling and the aforementioned laser game – so much activity all under one roof; it’s a must for any adrenaline junkie. With plenty of restaurants and snack bars to choose from too, you certainly won’t go hungry.

Combine the fun with some relaxing trips and you have yourself a memorable city break. With art galleries, shops, parks and botanical gardens all on your doorstep, you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to do.

Begin your adventure today – book your Glasgow hotel in advance and benefit from online deals. All you have to do then is wait for your holiday to arrive and enjoy.
