Glasgow travel tips

1) Nightclubs in Glasgow are only open until 03:00

After 23:00, the favourite pastime of locals and tourists is going to a nightclub. The most famous establishments are Nice ‘n’ Sleazy, The Garage, and Sub Club. Please note that the drinks are overpriced there, and the opening hours are usually from 23:00 to 03:00, so think in advance about how you will get to the hotel when the club closes.

2) Meet Scottish artists at the Hunterian Art Gallery in Glasgow

The Hunterian Art Gallery includes about 900 paintings. There are works by artists from all over the world, but the gallery is primarily focused on Scottish artists, especially the Glasgow Boys, the Scottish Colourists, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The entrance to the gallery is free.

3) If you order beer in a Glasgow pub, remember that it is served in pints

Don't go overboard with ordering beer in a Scottish pub! Typically, all traditional Glasgow pubs have a price per pint on their menus. One pint is almost 500 ml ( 473 ml exactly). Therefore, be prepared for the fact that they will bring you a big mug. The approximate cost of a pint of beer in pubs is £4-6 (5-7 euro).
