How to Spend 2 Days in Glasgow

How to Spend 2 Days in Glasgow

Two days in Glasgow allow you time to thoroughly experience its most famous sights, while also getting a deeper perspective on such crucial cultural elements as whisky and football, and even venturing outside the city to marvel at great feats of engineering. Here’s how to spend 48 hours in Scotland’s biggest city.

Day 1: Soak Up the Sights of the City

**Morning:**Start your day with a guided walking tour of Glasgow’s main sights. Private and group tours take you to such top attractions as George Square, Glasgow Cathedral and Necropolis, and the People’s Palace. Alternatively, a hop-on hop-off bus tour offers the flexibility of creating your own itinerary and spending as much time at each of the stops as you wish.

**Afternoon:**Learn all about the “water of life,” Scotch whisky, on a guided tour that takes you to a handful of different bars across the city. In a small group, you’ll be able to sample a variety of single-malt whiskies and learn about whisky-making, popular Scottish distilleries, Glasgow drinking culture, and whisky’s role in the history of the city. 

**Night:**Round out your first day by heading for the trendy Finnieston neighborhood, between the West End and city center, where you’ll find Glasgow’s top restaurants. Clustered around “the strip” on Argyle Street are numerous eateries serving everything from contemporary Scottish cuisine to tapas and Italian.

Day 2: Discover Scottish Football and Innovation

**Morning:**See two of Scotland’s most impressive feats of modern design on a half-day tour to the towering twin horse statues of the Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel rotating boat lift, both in Falkirk. Guided tours delve into Scotland’s rich engineering history and teach visitors about the country’s canal-building heritage.

**Afternoon:**Glasgow has two home football (soccer) teams—the arch rivals Celtic and Rangers—and is also home to the Scottish national team’s stadium, Hampden. You can take a tour of Celtic Park and/or Hampden for a behind-the-scenes peek into players’ dressing rooms, to walk down the tunnel, and to learn all about Scottish football.

**Night:**Conclude your visit to Glasgow on a sightseeing excursion with a difference. You can book dinner about a classic 1966 Routemaster double-decker bus and dine on a gourmet burger as you travel through the streets of Glasgow, taking in its sights one last time.
