Plan your journey from Glasgow Prestwick Airport
Prestwick is just a 35-minute drive along the M77 into the heart of Glasgow, where grand cathedrals, enticing shopping centres, renowned art galleries and much more awaits.
Head to St Andrews Cathedral to absorb some of the city’s rich history. A major restoration has ensured the impressive structure is back to its former gothic glory. With collections such as those featuring the works of European impressionist masters, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is an excellent choice for art lovers. Its 22 themed galleries have something for most tastes.
The St. Enoch Centre is the prime destination for those wanting to indulge in some retail therapy. For panoramic views of the city, make your way up to the top of the 150-foot-high Titan Clydebank – a 100-year-old shipbuilding crane.
On a sunny afternoon, head to the world-famous Willow Tea Rooms designed by Charles Rennie Macintosh in 1903. To admire more of his work, visit the House For An Art Lover. Built at the turn of last century, it was designed for a competition.
