Glasgow Tours & Holidays
Join us on holiday to Glasgow
Glasgow holidays offer everything you could want from a getaway, from a lively, thriving city full of museums, galleries, and top-notch restaurants, to being just a short drive from some of the most astounding natural landscapes in the British Isles.
Scotland’s biggest city might not be its capital, but there’s no doubt it’s the cultural epicentre of the nation. With Newmarket Holidays escorted tours, you’ll be swept around the best of these sights.
Glasgow tours can include everything from indulging in retail therapy on bustling Buchanan Street to making the short drive to Loch Lomond. If you’re up for a longer drive, you can even head through the Scottish Highlands to see the famous Loch Ness, (allegedly) home to the legendary monster and so deep it contains more water than all the lakes in England and Wales combined.
Of course, exploring the astounding natural beauty of the area surrounding the city is only possible if you can drag yourself away from the electric Glasgow city centre. Tours around Glasgow can take in anything from the Gallery of Modern Art to drinks at trendy bars in the recently regenerated West End. When you look at everything on offer, it’s easy to see that holidays in Glasgow really do have something for everyone.

Food and Drink in Glasgow
Glasgow is a city on the up, and nowhere is this more obvious than in its restaurants.
Aside from the expected cosy, traditional pubs to visit, there are plenty of chic bars and refined restaurants to try, including some that have been awarded a Michelin Star.
While it might seem like a cliché, there’s a reason why people rave about deep-fried Mars Bars. The act of dipping the chocolatey treat into batter and then throwing it into sizzling oil not only makes it incredibly gluttonous, but melts the middle of the sweet so it oozes delightfully when you take a bite.
No trip to Scotland would be complete without trying some haggis. The famous dish can be made in many ways, but if you can find one cooked in the traditional bladder all the better.
