Celtic Park

Celtic Park

Glasgow lives and breathes football, with Rangers and Celtic dominating the history of the sport in Scotland. Celtic’s 60,000 all-seater stadium Celtic Park in Parkhead takes some beating, while the team are currently comfortably on top in the fiercest of footballing rivalries. Before we upset Rangers fans too much, Ibrox is also a fine stadium to visit!

 

Where is it? Parkhead, Glasgow, G40 3RE

 

How much? Stadium tours cost: Adults £12, Children (under 12) £7.50

Celtic Park
Glasgow Cathedral & Necropolis

Glasgow Cathedral & Necropolis

Otherwise known as the “High Kirk” of the city, Glasgow Cathedral is nearly 900 years old and survived the Scottish Reformation, still holding Church of Scotland congregations today. Beside this perfect example of Scottish Gothic architecture is the Necropolis, a Victorian graveyard known as the “City of the Dead.” This spooky space is perhaps best to visit in the day!


Where is it? Cathedral Square, Glasgow, G4 0QZ

Glasgow School of Art Walking Tour

Glasgow School of Art Walking Tour

Ask a Glaswegian for the name of the person who most sums up Glasgow and there’s a good chance they’ll name Charles Rennie Mackintosh, an architect responsible for many of the buildings in the city. Drop by the Glasgow School of Art to be given a walking tour of some of his finest works by current students at the school.
