Glasgow Tourist Attractions

Glasgow is a popular city with a diverse range of nightlife, restaurants and shopping. However there are another tourist attractions in Glasgow for all of the family to enjoy. Some of the most popular are the McLellan Galleries, the Citizens Theatre, the SECC, the Transport Museum and the Science Centre to name but a few.

Named after their builder, Archibald McLellan, the building was constructed in 1856. While Kelvingrove Art Galleries are closed for refurbishment, there is an exhibition of some of the best works from the Kelvingrove Art Galleries. There are various other exhibits displayed all throughout the year and with free admission and city centre location why not pay a visit to the McLellan Galleries.

Being only a short walk from Glasgow Central makes the theatre accessible to almost everyone. After refurbishment in 1992 the theatre now has three auditoriums and can seat almost 800 people within these areas. Regular performances of all kinds including concerts and play make this truly one of Glasgow's great tourist attractions.

Glasgow's SECC is the UK's largest integrated exhibition and conference centre capable of seating 3,000 people. Concerts, exhibitions and even the circus are likely events to find at the SECC in Glasgow. Beautifully situated beside the river Clyde and accessible by all forms of public transport, and of course by car.

The Transport Museum is one of Glasgow's most popular tourist attractions over half a million visitors each year. The museum contains collections of vehicles and models to tell the story of transportation through the ages. You will find amongst the rare collections, Scottish built ships and cars, the oldest bicycle in the world and a spitfire just inside the main entrance. This is truly a day out for young and old alike.

Glasgow's Science centre is one of the newest visitor attractions that Glasgow has to offer. The building itself is made from titanium and the Glasgow tower rotates 360 degrees from the bottom, the only structure in the world, which can do so. Daily shows in the Imax theatre with its screen the size of a 5-a-side football pitch and hands on displays will keep all the family amused.
