Explore Glasgow city centre and discover Glasgow's "hidden treasures" whilst having a fun day out with family and friends!

Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city, is a vibrant and cosmopolitan place with a wealth of cultural heritage to explore. Offering a fabulous blend of internationally-acclaimed museums and galleries, beautiful parks and gardens, hugely impressive historic buildings, gorgeous rivers and canals, elegant tall ships, modern centres of science, fantastic shopping and a diverse array of buzzing restaurants and bars, stylish Glasgow is the place to visit, and is universally hailed as one of the best and definitely friendliest UK destinations.

Walk 1. Central Station to George Square - 1.75 miles / 2.8 kms
Starting at Glasgow’s busiest, but historic central station this walk wriggles its way around a succession of streets before ending at George Square, centre of the city. Along the way you’ll gain an excellent feel for what makes Glasgow tick – unique shops, eateries and drinking places; beautifully ornate buildings; hidden alleyways; stories of its bygone past; museums, art galleries and statues. A wonderful place to explore and enjoy!

Walk 2. George Square to Cathedral - 1.5 miles / 2.4 kms
From the centre of the city this walk wends its way round some quieter areas, with plenty of heritage and points of interest to enjoy. There’s an historic graveyard to explore, a variety of restaurants to sample in the original merchants' marketplace, a solitary steeple to admire, a medieval garden to relish, an amazing and unique Victorian cemetery to astound, and a 12th century cathedral to inspire you!

Explore, Discover & Enjoy!
