Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of Scotland’s most popular visitor attractions for a reason. It features works by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Monet and Renoir, and until 6 May 2019, is playing host to the Natural History Museum’s ‘Dippy’ the dinosaur on the first stop of his UK tour. With plenty of history to explore and a year-round programme of activities, Kelvingrove is the perfect day out for all ages. Find out more here.

Indulge in some delicious street food

Dockyard Social, Big Feed and Barras Food Trucks are just some of the great food festivals happening in Glasgow this Spring. Bringing some of Scotland’s best street food together, these festivals are a great way to experience a variety of different cuisines at an affordable price. Think halloumi fries, mac and cheese on everything and endless amounts of tacos. Hungry? So are we. More info here.

Take to the slopes

Scotland’s only year-round snow sport resort, Snow Factor, is the ultimate action-packed day out. If you’re a fan of snow sports then take to the slopes and show off your skills. Or if you fancy something a bit different, conquer the ice wall and try your hand at ice climbing. Even if you’re not a fan of snowboarding, skiing or scaling walls, Snow Factor is worth a visit for the Ice Bar alone. Wrap up in one of their cosy capes and enjoy a chilled drink in a glass made of real ice. We guarantee it’ll be the coolest bar you’ll ever go to.

Tennent’s & Makar Gin Ultimate Tour

Two of Glasgow’s leading breweries, Wellpark Brewery and Glasgow Distillery have teamed up to create the ultimate behind-the-scenes tour for lager and gin enthusiasts alike. You’ll get to sample both Tennent’s lager and Makar Glasgow Gin and transport between the two breweries is included in the price of your ticket. Get your learning hats on and your gin glasses out for the ultimate fun lover’s day out in Glasgow. Tickets available to book here.

Ashton Lane

Experience some of the city’s most quintessentially Scottish bars in the famous Ashton Lane. Famed for its cool pubs and Instagrammable fairy lights, Glaswegians flock to this cosy lane year-round for a wee dram and great live music. Even more popular when the sun is out, the lane is home to some of Glasgow’s best beer gardens. Pay a visit to the West End hub this Easter and see what all the fuss is about.
