A Cheap Glasgow Break



Description:

It is very possible to have a cheap Glasgow break, ranging from things to do, to places to eat. This guide is merely that, a guide..to make you aware that Glasgow has lots of low cost entertainment if you dig a bit deeper.

The city has to cater for it's large student population and as a result there are many bargains to be had in the city in terms of food and entertainment. To boot Glasgow is steeped in history and crammed full of architectural gems.

All the museums in Glasgow are FREE and you really will enjoy strolling round them. Glasgow is also the best place in the UK outside of London for shopping. From designer to bargain. You just cannot visit Glasgow and not visit the Barras...the atmosphere is fantastic and you may just nab a bargain. You may not have wads of cash to spend but do visit the Merchant city for some window shopping in places like the Italian centre.

If you have kids use this guide in conjunction with our kid guide. Some of the pubs and restaurants on the list are multi-purpose in that they provide cheap food and live entertainment. Do check out their websites as they usually have a weekly agenda and advertise the meal deals and drinks promos.

No cheap break in Glasgow would be complete without transport and you will be pleased to know there are good deals on the vast and regular bus services, trains and subways. You can get an "All Day" ticket which allows you to hop on and off the First group buses all day for just £3.75.
They also provide a service to Balloch which will get you to the famous Loch Lomond.

You simply cannot come to Glasgow and not visit this wondrous place. Summer or Winter you will love the place for it's scenery, great food and shopping. If you have your own transport head to Luss...just a wee bit further down the loch side and you can view the quaint picturesque street where the tv soap Take the High Road was filmed and stunning views of the loch. In summer you can take a speed boat trip for a mere fiver a head. There is plenty in this guide to provide a cheap Glasgow break but do check out the other guides and the site for even more inspiration!
