TOURIST IN GLASGOW? VISIT THESE FREE PLACES…

Glasgow

Nothing better than waking up in a hotel room in a different city. Zero responsibilities! It is the best carefree feeling ever. With nice, diverse, cosy cafes and restaurants lining the streets, vast array of high street brands, large walkways and friendly faces all over the town, Glasgow should be on your travel wishlist. One of the best things I loved about Glasgow is that every tourist attraction area is free of charge. Not a single place we visited did we have to pay a penny! In order to visit all these places I recommend taking the tour bus. It is affordable and it takes you round the city of Glasgow which includes all the touristy places touched on below.

Glasgow Cathedral

As the oldest cathedral on mainland Scotland and oldest building in Glasgow this Gothic looking medieval building is a place worth visiting. Even if you don’t get the chance to explore inside of the cathedral as we didn’t, the outside is still a beauty. The place was locked when we got there and I was bummed. Nonetheless I’m glad I can say that I have seen it too. Ha!!

The Lighthouse

Want a view of Glasgow from above? Then the answer is, The Lighthouse. It is Scotland’s centre for design and architecture. On level three in the Lighthouse is Mackintosh centre and this is where one can access the long helical staircase to the outdoor area where you can get a glimpse of the beauty of Glasgow from above. Below is an image I took while up there. All I can say is that, if you’ve bad knees don’t try because it is a lot of stairs.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Reopened after three years of refurbishment, this is one of the most popular visited tourist attraction places in Glasgow. I have been to a lot of museums, but nothing like Kelvingrove. Divided into two parts, Life and Expression, this museum is huge. The Life represents human history, natural history and prehistory. The Expression consists of fine art collections. You will be mesmerized! It is like travelling through time. At one point it felt like I was in a zoo. You won’t be disappointed so be sure to pass through.

Riverside Museum

Another museum to visit is, Riverside. An award-winning transport museum with over 3000 memorabilia on show. Locomotives, skateboards, trams, cars, bikes, paintings to prams (e.t.c), there’re so much to explore at this museum. This is a place where both adults and kids will enjoy because there’s something for everyone. There is so much history to learn here with each image telling a fascinating story.

    Oh what a great trip and you had wonderful weather for it, love your snaps! The museum looks like a must -visit. I would love to visit one day. Though I knew two people that lived in Glasgow and left b/c of the high crime rate. And they were both New Yorkers lol though originally from Ireland.

    Hey Sis. It’s been a crazy busy month, but I finally made it to your Glasgow post. Your pics look incredible. I can’t believe all of these fabulous tourist attractions were free. I love museums. A bus tour is a must for me when I visit a new city. Such a great way to learn and explore a new city. Thank you for sharing.
