Your Hotel

Your accommodation in Glasgow is a high-quality boutique residence in a classic terraced property in one of the city’s most exclusive addresses. With just five beautifully appointed, generously proportioned rooms, each featuring unmistakably Victorian architectural touches such as high ceilings and ornate plasterwork cornice, you’ll feel distinctly pampered here. Within just a few minutes’ walk, you’ll find much of the best of what Glasgow has to offer in terms of art, culture, dining, refreshment, parks and recreation.

Included in this holiday is a guided group walking tour of the city. We can tailor your tour to focus on the grand designs of Charles Rennie Macintosh, or on the social history of the city, from Billy Connolly’s Banana Boots to the gritty stories of the River Clyde. It’s your holiday; your choice.

As part of this break, you will also enjoy a delicious and quirky afternoon tea at an award-winning boutique tea lounge, a perfect way to relax after a day’s exploration.

What to see and do in Glasgow

Head to Bellahouston Park for a morning at House for an Art Lover. Featuring all kinds of visual arts inside, this is a great way to enjoy the architecture which Glasgow and Mackintosh are famous for whilst discovering something new.

The People’s Palace and Winter Gardens, situated in Glasgow Green is also a must-see whilst in Glasgow. This iconic museum and glasshouse offers an insight in to the city’s social history through a wealth of historic paintings, prints and photographs.

Head to George Square and do a tour of Glasgow’s City Chambers, which has featured in several films including Heavenly Pursuits, The House of Mirth and The 39 Steps. As you wander around this striking building you will see why Glasgow was the second city of the British Empire. With Italian influences throughout this is truly a treasure in Glasgow architecture.

The iconic GFT – Glasgow Film Theatre is not to be missed. Here you’ll find everything from the latest releases to art house cinema and independent documentaries – and with tickets to a  film screening included in your holiday, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
