Things to see in Glasgow

For an educational day out, head to Glasgow Science Centre. As well as many interactive exhibitions in the science museum, there’s also an exciting planetarium and IMAX cinema. While the kids are watching the latest blockbuster you can always chill out in the center’s sleek café with a large slice of cake. If the kids still have a lot of energy, take them to the expansive Kelvingrove Park. There are loads of walking trails to run around and monuments to discover, and you can always enjoy a picnic at the central bandstand, where you may find some live music being performed. You can test out your family’s sea legs by boarding the Glenlee ship. Now docked outside the Riverside Museum, this stationary ship’s maiden voyage was way back in 1896. For an adrenaline-filled day out, take a trip to M&D’s amusement park to enjoy white-knuckle rollercoasters and log flumes.
