Let the Glaswegian adventure begin! You can hop on at any stop you want and hop off at historic George Square to check out the swanky City Chambers which boasts more marble than the Vatican! From a 19th-century building to a medieval one – next stop: Glasgow Cathedral, dating all the way back to the 12th century.
Today’s Glasgow is, with good reason, known as one of the world’s friendliest cities. Head towards the lively market, the Barras, a real Glasgow institution, to have a blether (chat) with the locals. Browse the eclectic and quirky assortment of odds and ends while you giggle at the Glaswegian sense of humour. For a more conventional shopping experience, hop on the bus and hit the busy boulevards of shops near Argyle Street.
Another of Glasgow’s strengths is the thriving music scene and you can learn all about its vibrant history and best venues by tuning into our music tour on our multilingual commentary! Music-lovers can ride along the River Clyde and hop off at the SEC. This striking building is affectionately known as the Armadillo because of its sleek, cutting-edge design resembling the armoured mammal.
Back on the top deck of our bus and heading to the city’s wonderful West End, you can take fantastic photos of the gothic spires of the University of Glasgow. Hop off to explore the historic campus – you’ll feel like you’ve been transported into a Harry Potter film. As the University sits on a hill, you can admire incredible urban views from the top.
The literal translation of Glasgow is the dear green place and the city boasts many open verdant spaces. Kelvingrove Park is one of the finest. Hop off right next to the park and pop next door to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery with over 9000 artefacts and paintings on display. And the cost of a ticket? Completely free!
Dying for a cuppa after all this travel? Well, the good news is, our bus will drop you right outside the stylish Willow Tea Rooms. Treat yourself to a traditional afternoon tea while you admire the elegant lines of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s designs, a hallmark of this café, and of the city itself. Get your ticket online today and discover Glasgow by bus in style!
