Start your Glasgow city break with a fry-up at Glasgow city centre staple Café Gandolfi (64 Albion Street), where the full Scottish breakfast includes rich Stornoway black pudding and a traditional ‘tattie scone’. Then take a stroll through Glasgow city centre to the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art (Royal Exchange Square).
Afterwards brave the steep hill to architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s art nouveau masterpiece, the Glasgow School of Art (167 Renfrew Street). You can see more of his work in Glasgow city centre if you take the Mackintosh’s Glasgow Walking Tour.
Stop by Babu Bombay Street Kitchen (186 West Regent Street) for cheap Glasgow eats heavy on authentic Indian flavours, then hop on the subway to Partick, a short walk from the jagged roofline of Glasgow’s Riverside Museum (100 Pointhouse Road).
Begin with a cocktail and oysters at Rogano (11 Exchange Place), an elegant 1930s restaurant decked out in ocean-liner style, before gearing up for a gig. The historic Barrowland Ballroom (244 Gallowgate) is a just short walk from Glasgow city centre. Finish your night at The Pot Still pub (154 Hope Street), where the welcome is as warming as the whisky.
Kick off day two of your Glasgow city break with bacon sandwiches at North Star Café (108 Queen Margaret Drive) in the West End, a short hop by subway from Glasgow city centre. Wander through nearby Glasgow Botanic Gardens (730 Great Western Road), and check out the soaring pinnacles of Glasgow University.
Spend an hour or two rifling through the West End’s boutiques. Starry Starry Night (19 Dowanside Lane) is squirrelled down an alley off Byres Road and is crammed with vintage fashions from the 19th century to the 1980s. Two Fat Ladies (88 Dumbarton Road), around the corner from Byres Road, serves fabulous Scottish seafood for a classy lunch with a relaxed vibe. Afterwards take in the collection at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (Argyle Street), which includes Salvador Dali’s dreamy take on the crucifixion.
End your Glasgow city break with craft beers at Bar Brel on cobbled Ashton Lane followed by dinner at the Ubiquitous Chip (12 Ashton Lane), renowned for serving the finest Scottish ingredients for more than 40 years. Move on to Òran Mór (Byres Road) for traditional Scottish music topped off with a malt or two from the 280 on offer in their Whisky Bar.
