What to see & do in Glasgow

King Tut's Wah Wah Hut

Feast your eyes on anything and everything at this tiny but iconic venue. A lot of tourists head up to Glasgow just for the pilgrimage to the legendary spot where Oasis signed their first record deal. We were more psyched about The View's six sold-out shows earlier this year, though. OK, just kidding. kingtuts.co.uk

Sub Club

An absolute institution, Sub Club has been going longer than most millennials, and shows no sign of slowing down. Recent years have seen residences from local legends like Optimo and electronic music labels like Numbers. Basically, if you even remotely like electronic music, go there. subclub.co.uk

The Lighthouse

With multiple exhibition spaces, this Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed piece of cultural heritage is Scotland's centre for design and architecture that's housed, unsurprisingly, in a lighthouse. Head here to get your art fix, or climb the Mack Tower for unparalleled views of the city. thelighthouse.co.uk

Where to stay in Glasgow

15 Glasgow

From the velvet cushions to the squashy sofas, 15 Glasgow combines traditional luxury with a chic contemporary twist. This award-winning, five-room B&B is just a five-minute walk from Glasgow's centre, and is run by owner and hostess Laura. £120pn; 15glasgow.com


All traditional red-brick on the outside and sleek, pared-back wood on the inside, the best way to describe this 30-room hotel is Scotland via Scandinavia – a pairing that might be unexpected, but it works. Design aside, it's got luxurious showers, comfy beds and a balls-out full Scottish breakfast with freshly baked bread. £78pn; grasshoppersglasgow.com

ABode Glasgow

Rooms at this hotel start at 'comfortable' and finish at 'fabulous' – which, FYI, means you get a super-king-sized bed and a tuck box of tasty treats with your stay. You also get both a roll-top bath and a walk-in monsoon shower, making an overnight visit here very fabulous indeed. £54pn; abodeglasgow.co.uk
