Try these websites for a few pointers:
Fancy the Flicks?
Visit the Bhoys or the Gers, or if you can't be bothered picking sides there is always the famous Partick Thistle Nil or the historic Queens Park.
Other sports are played in Glasgow so if you follow; rugby try Glasgow Warriors, basketball try Scottish Rocks, American football try the Claymores, ice hockey try the Pirates and of course you need look no further for gaelic football, camogie and shinty.
Fancy a wee sail doon the watter, then the Waverley (sea-going paddle steamer) is for you.
Stuff that is pure dead brilliant, or at least pure dead Glasgow:
- Salvadore Dali's Christ of St John of the Cross is on permanent exhibition at the Kelvingrove Art Galleries (free entry).
- To see an example of a traditional Glasgow "single end" or for a close up view of Billy Connolly's banana boots (and lots of other stuff) there is the People's Palace (free entry).
- If you want to hear the traditional cry of "Cum oan, get aff" you can hang about too long on a tram at the Transport Museum (free entry). The transport museum is moving to a new location and will be CLOSED till spring 2011.
Alternatively for simply the pure dead, Glasgow's Necropolis is the place to visit the famous and infamous. There is also the Southern Necropolis in the Gorbals.
