One of the reasons I love Glasgow is the vast amount of free things on offer. From attractions to tours there is always something to do and it is the perfect city for those on a budget
Widely advertised are the big museums and parks which offer amazing experiences and there is a reason that they are so popular. However, there are also plenty of lesser known gems in the city that are equally deserving of a visit and offer a more unique experience.
This guide is my list of ten alternative places and tours that are free and in my opinion worthwhile. As with everything in my travel blog I have visited them all and I'm happy to provide any more information you need although I've included all the links to the appropriate websites.
Although the things listed here are free I've noted ones that are grateful for donations to help maintain their attraction so please consider this if you enjoyed your visit.
I could easily have included another ten so maybe I'll have to work on part 2! If you're looking for something different to do in the city this is a good place to start.
Take a Walking Tour of the Necropolis
Visit the Glasgow Gurdwara
Take a tour of the City Chambers
Visit the Police Museum
Visit St Andrew's Cathedral
Take a tour of the Glasgow Museum Resource Centre
Visit the Govan Stones
Follow a trail around the Merchant City
Visit Glasgow's Oldest House
Take a walk along the Clyde at night
So that is my list and hopefully it will give you some alternative ideas of things to do in the city. If you know of any other free Glasgow gems please get in touch and share them.
