Glasgow is a city reborn. The banks of the River Clyde, once the site of the shipyards that powered Britain’s industrial revolution, are today home to stylish restaurants and chic galleries that make the city a food lover’s hotspot. The vitality of the famously friendly Glaswegians compliments the city’s old-world architectural charm, and Glasgow’s top-notch music, sport and art scenes only add to its appeal. There are flights to Glasgow from a range of airports across the UK making a Scottish getaway easier than ever.
With two airports and a host of airlines serving the city, you can find cheap tickets to Glasgow the whole year round. And this famous old city has plenty to offer, no matter what month you visit in. Glasgow’s northerly latitude guarantees long hours of daylight during summer and this is the most popular time for visitors, with festivals featuring everything from jazz to pipe music. The Glaswegians’ passion for sport keeps them warm through the colder months. The city’s two massive football clubs, Celtic and Rangers, draw tens of thousands each weekend no matter the weather. The match day atmosphere is a truly spine-tingling experience.
Glasgow’s ultra-cool music scene, top-class galleries and reputation as a foodie’s paradise are just some of the reasons that more and more visitors are flocking to Scotland’s largest city. Increased demand has meant a surge in the number of airlines offering cheap flights to Glasgow from all over the UK. EasyJet has daily connections from London’s Stansted, Luton and Gatwick airports. Budget carrier Ryanair uses Glasgow Airport as a regional hub with flights to London and beyond, while Flybe links the city with smaller airports such as East Midlands and Cardiff.
The Greater Glasgow urban area is the third largest city in Britain and is served by two international airports. Glasgow Airport is the city’s main aviation hub, located 9 miles west of the city. The M8 motorway connects the airport with the city centre, and there are plentiful taxis and buses on standby 24/7 to whizz you into town. The shuttle bus operated by First Glasgow offers the fastest direct round-the-clock connection, with the transfer taking less than half an hour. The city’s second airport, Glasgow Prestwick, is 32 miles from Glasgow’s centre but the regular direct rail connections mean you can step off your flight to Glasgow and be in the heart of the city in only 40 minutes.
Glasgow is a perfect combination of the magic of modernity and the old-world glamour of bygone days. The city’s Theatre Royal hosts the best of stage productions, old and new, while the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum houses a huge collection of art and artefacts in its exquisite Spanish Baroque halls. If you’re looking for a more active city stay, you can enjoy the thrills and spills of M&D’s amusement park, just 20 minutes outside the city.
