When to fly?
April to September is the tourist season for Glasgow, and the peak season is July and August. These two months are further inundated with visitors when the British schools are on holiday. For this time of year, reserve and book your hotel and flights to Glasgow well in advance.
The best times to book cheap flights to Glasgow are late spring, early summer, and autumn. All the attractions are open, rooms are easy to find, and the weather is warm. Every year in October, tens of thousands of participants take part in the Great Scottish Run. Starting in George Square, the 10k or half marathon challenge (depending on your ability) is sure to set pulses racing. Runners are able to catch a glimpse of a number of famous attractions along the route, whilst spectators can cheer them on to the finish line at Glasgow green. Kids can also get involved in events, such as the Toddler dash, Mini Run and Junior Run.
If wet weather doesn't dampen your spirits, take a flight to Glasgow in the spring. The flowers are starting to bloom and accommodation rates and airline fares are reduced.
Book a flight to Glasgow and visit Scotland’s largest city, blessed with some of the greatest representations of Victorian architecture in the world, most notably the works of famed Glaswegian architects Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Alexander Thomson. Travellers fly to Glasgow for the city's seventy-plus stunning parks and gardens, earning it the Gaelic title of “the Dear Green Place”. Apart from its aesthetic beauty, most Glasgow travellers are pleasantly surprised by the energy of the city, from its trendy bars to its artsy galleries and great shopping. In fact, the shopping is one of the main reasons visitors from all around Europe hop on a cheap flight to Glasgow for a city break. Music seems to fill the air in the city, seeping through the thick walls of its opera houses and concert halls. Pop into a pub on a weeknight and listen to a band looking to break into the scene. Many award-winning bands including Franz Ferdinand and The Fratellis first began their careers in this inspiring city playing at such gigs. But serious music lovers booking flights to Glasgow should definitely visit at a time when the city plays host to some great music festivals, particularly the Glasgow Music Festival.
