Discover Glasgow!

Posted on 15 July 2014

With the Commonwealth Games coming to Glasgow next week, Scotland's largest city will once again be centre stage. So what can you expect if you're travelling to Glasgow for the games? COOK Glasgow have put together a list of some of the top things to, some of which you won't find in the usual tourist guides.

Arts and Culture -

The city has over 20 galleries and museums so you're never far from a cultural experience that earned Glasgow the title of European City of Culture. Pop in to Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery in the city's leafy west end.


Glasgow is second only to London as Britain's most important shopping city. Head for the Style Mile in the City Centre.

Music and Nightlife -

The music scene in Glasgow is red hot, and if you want to spot the next big thing, get in line at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut. It’s here that Oasis were famously spotted and signed in 1993, and the venue supported the likes of Radiohead, Florence & The Machine, and Biffy Clyro from the start of their careers.

Eating and Drinking -

Glasgow is packed full of restaurants to suit every budget. We also have one of our newest COOK shops located at 498 Great Western Rd in the beautiful west end of the city. Pop in say hi to David and his team.
