1. Mackintosh At The Willow

Designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for local entrepreneur and patron Miss Kate Cranston, the Tea Rooms opened in 1903 and are considered one of Glasgow’s most important architectural and cultural landmarks.

3. Lazer Planet
Located at Scotkart Clydebank, this is the perfect activity for a family day out. It’s as much fun for the parents as it is for the kids. There are several features that make the glow in the dark arena different from any other laser tag ring. Before being given ‘your mission’, you will be given a full safety briefing and orientation session, so you are aware of the location of your energiser points, bases, and emergency exits. Book here.
4. The Tenement House
This tenement house offers a glimpse into life in Glasgow in the early 20th century. Despite being more than a century old, the rooms in this Victorian flat retain many of their original fixtures and fittings, giving a sense of how ordinary Glaswegians lived in the first half of the nineteenth century. From 1911 until 1965, Miss Agnes Toward lived here, and she took wonderful care of her furniture and possessions. Find out more about The Tenement House here.
5. Flip Out Glasgow
Are you ready to flip out in the biggest trampoline arena in the world? This venue boasts a massive 63,000 square foot trampoline and inflatable sections, including an inflatable obstacle course. This trampoline park was one of the first in the UK to have a Ninja course, which is incredibly fun. Get bouncing here.
