Campervan and Motorhome Hire Glasgow
We would definitely encourage residents of Glasgow to utilise our campervan and motorhome hire in Glasgow to get out and see the rest of the country. However, those who don’t have the pleasure of living there should do the reverse. Why not make it a stop on your next campervan or motorhome journey? Glasgow has a ton of fantastic activities and some really cool locations to explore. As it is summer, there are also a number of fun events spread throughout the city that the whole family will love. If you’re still not convinced, we’d happily spend all day raving about the many positive aspects of the city. However, not many people will have a full day free to listen to us. So, here is a list of some reasons as to why you should visit Glasgow with your campervan or motorhome hire.
Glasgow is home to a number of fantastic parks. Each has its own unique selling point, but all of them are beautiful and provide a much-needed contrast to the sights of the city. For those making of a campervan and motorhome hire in Glasgow, we’d highly recommend taking a visit to Pollok Country Park. It’s 146-hectares worth of stunning woodlands and filled to the brim with things to do. There is a play park for the kids, highland cows, woodland walks, walled gardens and even a museum. The Burrell Collection is a fantastic museum that displays the many unusual and fascinating artefacts collected by Sir William Burrell. Pollok Park is just one of the many superb parks within Glasgow, so definitely be sure to give a fair chunk of them a look.
The Cultural Sites
Despite what you may have heard Edinburgh doesn’t have all the fascinating Scottish cultural sites. While we would recommend taking a visit, you can just as much cultural enrichment with a campervan and motorhome hire visit to Glasgow. One such place is the Glasgow Necropolis. It’s somewhat of a grim visit, being that necropolis literally means ‘city of the dead,’ but it is an incredibly interesting location for a number of reasons. Not only is it home to 50,000 people from the past, but it also played an important role in the history of the medieval City of Glasgow. Tours are run daily for those interested. If a visit to the dead isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Glasgow has plenty of other cultural splendours to enjoy. You could take a visit to George Square or St Mungo’s cathedral to get your fix. Glasgow is also home to a number of museums that are free to enter.
If you’re a fan of food, Glasgow is the perfect city to visit. As it is such a diverse city with residents from all over the globe, there are restaurants that serve delights from every continent. Whether you love Chinese, Italian, Greek, Japanese, Indian, Polish or German cuisine, Glasgow will have the place for you. It’s well known that the city has an ever-evolving food and drink scene, with Finnieston recommended as a highlight in particular. For those campervan enthusiasts who have opted for a more eco-friendly way of life, Glasgow is also known as one of the UK’s most vegan-friendly cities.
The Music Scene
Glasgow is a fantastic place to visit if you’re a fan of music. It was named as the UK’s first UNESCO City of Music, as it has one of the most vibrant music scenes throughout the sovereign state. It’s a hotspot for live performance. Where other cities across the country are shutting down venues, Glasgow has only opened more. Bands from across the globe have been making a stop at Glasgow, the Hydro, in particular, so you’re sure to find a show that you’ll love every night of the week. It’s also well known for the many fantastic festivals held throughout the year. If you’re able to utilise a campervan and motorhome hire in Glasgow this weekend, you could give the Trnsmt festival a visit.
For those who enjoy a little retail therapy, Glasgow is the perfect spot to visit with a campervan and motorhome hire. Glasgow is a shoppers paradise. The mile between Buchanan Street and Argyle Street contains an immense amount of branded stores and smaller shops. It’s known as the Style Mile and you’ll be guaranteed to find what you’re looking for and more here. If you’re interested in more exclusive (expensive) stores, Glasgow also provides that. Princes Square is home to global brands such as Jo Malone, Vivienne Westwood and Kurt Geiger.
