Reasons to visit

Glasgow Youth Hostel is a 20 minute walk from the famous Ashton Lane with its unique collection of pubs and restaurants, and only a 30 minute walk from the city centre.

Buchanan Street ('The Style Mile'), with Princes Square and a host of top shopping opportunities is only a 30 minute walk away and Merchant Square, with its indoor craft fair and diverse range of cafes, pubs and restaurants, is well worth a visit.

For those with an interest in culture, Glasgow has a host of attractions. These include the nearby Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Riverside Museum, Botanic Gardens, Gallery of Modern Art and Glasgow Science Centre. Many of these have free admission making them ideal for families.

Glasgow could never be described as shy and retiring. Embracing the concept of street art, Glasgow has launched a city centre mural trail. These epic pieces of art bring new life to the city's brickwork, brightening up local areas and giving local artists the chance to showcase their work. 

With a number of great music events taking place throughout the year, Glasgow's SEC, Armadillo and Hydro Arena are all within 30 minutes' walking distance via Finnieston with its artisan pubs and eateries. 

Other attractions worth exploring include:

  • The People's Palace
  • Glasgow School of Art
  • Glasgow Cathedral
  • Riverside Distillery
  • The Lighthouse (for rooftop views of Glasgow)
