The Necropolis

Dominated by the statue of John Knox, this is an old cemetery on a small hill right behind Glasgow Cathedral. Its design was based on the Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris and the elaborate tombs are home to many obscure Glasgow Victorian dignitaries and a few famous ones. It was established in 1831 by the Merchants' House of Glasgow and several well-known local architects such as Alexander 'Greek' Thomson had a hand in the design of memorials and mausoleums. On weekdays, guides are available to show visitors around the cemetery. Excellent views of the cathedral and beyond can be enjoyed from the top of the hill.

Pollok Country Park

Welcome to a wonderful slice of the countryside just outside the city center that you can wander peacefully. This is a large park in the south of Glasgow and home to a huge array of birds and small animals. Woodland walks and meadow trails make lovely afternoon pursuits and if you wander along the riverside you may catch a glimpse of an otter or mink. The stunning gardens were created by Sir John Stirling Maxwell and offer a more formal vision of natural beauty. Don't miss the herd of Highland cattle, shire-horses, the Burrell Collection and Pollok House. Park rangers run guided tours through the grounds at various times. There is also a mountain biking circuit.

George Square

Flanked on one side by the magnificent City Chambers and on another by the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Valley Tourist Board, George Square was laid out in the 19th Century and is dominated by a 24-meter (80-foot) column, with a statue of Sir Walter Scott on top. On a sunny day, clusters of people sunbathe amidst statues of such august personages as Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, Robert Burns, James Oswald, James Watt, William Gladstone and Robert Peel. The Cenotaph war memorial is also around and the square itself saw bloodshed in 1918 when crowds rioted during a protest against the 56-hour working week. As the only large open space in the city center, it's often used as a venue for celebrations.

Celtic Park

Founded in 1888 and nicknamed "Paradise," Celtic Park holds over 60,000 rowdy football fans, rooting for or against the home team, the Celtic Football Club. The green and white team battles some of the top football clubs in the UK and Europe every season. For a serious Scottish football experience, try booking tickets during a game!

Ibrox Stadium

Ibrox Park has been home to the Glasgow Rangers Football Club since 1899. Near the west end area of Glasgow, Ibrox attracts football fans from the UK and Europe for regional, national and international matches. Over 50,000 fans can come cheer on the home team and enjoy a day of intense field action and fun in the stands. Guided stadium tours are available for a behind-the-scenes look at the field and players' areas.

Fir Park

With its inception in 1895, this stadium has been around for quite some time. It has formally hosted football matches since its opening, today being home to the Scottish Premier League's Motherwell Football Club. There are plenty of seats which make for an impressive crowd on game days. Make sure you get here early as the good seats go fast!
