Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens are perfect for a chilled walk or relaxing stop between shopping and sightseeing. Make sure you don’t miss Kibble Palace, the stunning greenhouse which features elegant marble statues circled by vibrant flowers, tropical palms and the National Collection of Tree Ferns.
When you visit the Riverside Museum you’re in for a visual delight - the building alone is one of the most contemporary buildings in Scotland and with the Clyde-built Tall Ship berthed alongside it, it’s certainly a sight to behold. Discover a huge variety of transport exhibits including vehicles, bikes and trains inside the museum or step aboard the Tall Ship for some nautical fun.
