Free attractions in Glasgow


Glasgow It is a Scottish city that is worth visiting, although it is true that it does not have as much in song as Edinburgh, the capital. With 3 or 4 days it is possible to see its main attractions, most of which are free. Then I leave you with a list in which some of them appear:

Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum


In this gallery you will enjoy art exhibitions, design information and Charles Rennie MckIntosh. All this while learning a little more history about Scotland.

Location: Argyle Street, Glasgow


The Burrell Collection


In total there are some 8,000 art objects on display. There are 19th century French paintings, important collections of Oriental art, and sculptures by Rodin and Epstein.

Location: Pollok Country Park, 2060 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow

The People’s Palace & Winter Gardens


It is a must to discover the history of Glasgow, from 1750 to the present day. In addition, at the front of it we can enjoy the Doulton fountain, the largest terracotta fountain in the world.


Location: Glasgow Green, Glasgow

Riverside museum


It is one of the latest news from Glasgow. It opened its doors to the public in June 2011 and has replaced the Transport Museum. Like that one, it shows an important collection of transport.

Location: Pointhouse Place, Glasgow


The College of Piping


It was founded in 1944 and has the privilege of being the oldest national institution for teaching Scottish bagpipes.

Location: 16-24 Otago Street, Glasgow

Glasgow cathedral


It is one of the most outstanding medieval buildings in Scotland. It survived the reform of 1560 and is built on the site where St. Mungo, patron saint of Glasgow, was buried.

Location: Cathedral Square, Glasgow

Glasgow City Chambers


They are the administrative headquarters of the City Council and have more than 100 years behind them. They are a magnificent example of 19th century architecture in Glasgow. Every day, if the activities of the City Council allow it, it is possible to go on a guided tour that is organized in two shifts, one in the morning and the other at noon.

Location: City Chambers, George Square, Glasgow

St. Mungo’s Museum of Religious Life & Art


It is a very interesting museum that explores the different religions around the world through art and objects. It is ideal for both believers and non-believers.

Location: 2 Castle Street, Glasgow

Glasgow Necropolis


It is the city of the dead, an example of somewhat macabre architecture and design that reflects Glasgow's economic and social heritage.
