How about going the extra mile and including some information about what to see when they are in the city? They will certainly appreciate it - especially if this is their first time in the area. To help you get off to a flying start we have pulled together this list of Glasgow must-see's #Kelvingrove Art Gallery It may surprise both you and your event attendees, but Glasgow is actually home to a great many stunning city-owned art galleries and museums - with Kelvingrove being one of the finest. It is actually rated number one on Trip Advisor for things to do in Glasgow due to its 22 galleries which are packed full of exhibits from art to animals - and it is all free! A little-known fact about it is also that you can hire it for your next UK conference, so if this sounds exactly what you are looking for then get in touch with the team at Conferences UK right away. #Mackintosh Magic You can't talk about Glasgow without talking about Charles Rennie Mackintosh the pioneering architect and designer who was born in the city back in 1868. There are plenty of ways to get your Mackintosh to fix in Glasgow from The Mackintosh House which houses a recreation of the interiors of the homes that Charles and his artist wife Margaret shared, through to the Mackintosh designed 'House for an Art Lover' in Bellahouston Park. You can also sip on a cup of tea and enjoy a slice of cake in the Mackintosh designed 'Mackintosh at the Willow' tearooms in Sauchiehall Street. #Ashton Lane If you really want to get under the skin of Glasgow, then you need to head on over to Ashton Lane in the West Neighbourhood. In the summer it is a hot spot for al fresco drinking and dining in the sunlight, while at this time of year you can enjoy a stroll underneath the twinkling fairy lights that line the street. There is even an independent cinema if your attendees fancy watching a film in their spare time. Ashton Lane is also home to one of the best restaurants in Glasgow, the Ubiquitous Chip which is a superb place for your attendees to try a spot of haggis with a wee dram of whiskey! #Sporting Prowess If your event is sports related then Glasgow is the perfect place to hold it as the city is packed full of great sporting venues. For football fans there is Celtic Park, Ibrox, and the Scottish Football Museum. There are lots of other interesting places to visit if football isn't your thing though, such as basketball, netball, rugby or even speedway. If you want to get involved in some sport, then head to the Chris Hoy Velodrome and get on your bike, or wetsuit up and get down to the Pinkston Watersports Centre. #Shop Until You Drop Glasgow is one of the best places in the UK to go shopping as it is home to the largest retail centre in the UK - outside of London. Head to the golden triangle of Argyle Street, Buchanan Street, and Sauchiehall Street if you want to shop at some of the high streets biggest name stores. If you are after something more niche, then you should head over to The Hidden Lane in Finneston which is packed full of quirky crafters. Ingram Street is great for designer labels, while heading over to the west side of the city will allow you to experience some great independent traders and market stalls. #Green Places Glasgow actually means 'Dear Green Place' in Gaelic and never was a city so aptly named - it has over 90 gardens and parks to choose from! The oldest park in Glasgow is Glasgow Green which is not only home to the beautiful McLennan Arch but also the oldest terracotta fountain in the World the Doulton Fountain. The Glasgow Botanic Gardens is home to lots of extensive tropical plant collections housed in impressive glass houses, or you can head over to Pollock Country Park to meet some Highland Cows.
