Often when you take a weekend off to explore a new city, it is packed full of sights, sounds and excessive eating and drinking. So much that you need another weekend off to recover! Although there is a lot to do in Glasgow, we want to make sure you return home rested and relaxed but not feeling like you’ve missed out on anything. Here are our top tips for a relaxing weekend break in Glasgow:
Fresh air and exercise are great for both your body and mind and it doesn’t get any prettier than the Glasgow Botanic Gardens for a relaxing walk. Wrap up warmly and enjoy a leisurely stroll through the gardens, enjoying the huge variety of plant species, woodland copses and a riverside walk. The gardens have an air of peace and tranquillity from the moment you’re through the gates. The highlight of your visit will be the notable Kibble Greenhouse and a visit to their new tearooms.
See Glasgow from a completely different perspective with a visit to Scotland’s national centre for design and architecture, Lighthouse, which has been an important part of our city since 1895. Hidden in plain sight, the centre has a constant stream of events and exhibitions promoting the arts and architecture without the huge crowds and queues of a standard tourist attraction. While there, climb the Mackintosh Tower for beautiful, uninterrupted views across Glasgow.
Shopping when on vacation is such an enjoyable experience because you’re not under pressure and usually have some extra cash put aside for a treat. However, Glasgow is a busy and bustling city with a lot of dedicated weekend shoppers. For an escape from the crowd and to sample some of Glasgow’s finest boutique shops, head to Ruthven Lane and Ruthven Mews Arcade – only 4 stops on the tram from PREMIER SUITES serviced apartments in Glasgow.

If tea is your thing and you’re looking for somewhere to relax for a few hours, grab a hot drink at Tchai-Ovna, Glasgow’s speciality tea house. It’s close to Kelvingrove Park and Art Gallery so you could spend a whole afternoon exploring and retreat to the tea house to enjoy their warm, cosy atmosphere before heading out for dinner. They have over 100 varieties of tea, delicious Vegetarian and Vegan food on offer and often have music events on too.
The ultimate treat and a way to ensure you are fully and completely relaxed when you return home, a trip to a day spa is not to be underrated. The Beauty Boutique is a day spa with water facilities-based just 10-minutes from PREMIER SUITES Glasgow. They offer a great variety of treatments ranging from massages, facials and microdermabrasion. If you want to doll yourself up for dinner or a big night out, they also have beauty treatments like mani/pedis, make-up application and tanning.
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow’s venue for the arts with mainly musical performances shown here.
