Full Day History, Science & Museum Tour

This itinerary aims to give you a bit of everything and help you maximise your stay. It combines free and paying attractions, and should have something for everyone.

  • Board the bus at our main stop (Stop 1) at George Square.
  • Hop off at Glasgow Cathedral (Stop 2) and enjoy a visit to the cathedral or the Necropolis where you can explore the final resting place of many of Glasgow’s wealthy Victorian, and take in the great views of the city.
  • Hop back on board until the SECC (Stop 11) where you can walk across the bridge to visit The Glasgow Science Centre, a stunning building filled with great exhibits featuring science and technology as well as an IMAX cinema.  An onsite Café means you can also enjoy lunch there before crossing the bridge and hopping back on at the SECC (Stop 11)
  • Next stop would be Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (Stop 16).  Kelvingrove has an amazing collection of everything from paintings to natural history exhibits.  It also sits beside the lovely Kelvingrove Park where you can stroll beside the River Kelvin.  Hopping back on at Stop 16, we would recommend you then complete the tour and hop off back at George Square (Stop 1) to enjoy a stroll through the city centre, perhaps taking the opportunity to find somewhere to eat that evening or enjoy a few drinks while watching the world pass by in a pavement café
