Glasgow is poised to live up to its reputation as one of the country’s most romantic cities as Glasgow’s Leading Attractions come together to offer the starry-eyed visitor a St Valentine’s Day they will never forget.
For the old fashioned romantic there’s the Titanic Exhibition at the Tall Ship where you can create your own Kate and Leonardo experience – but with a happier ending, of course.
The lovers who love art can enjoy the lush sensual visual experiences on offer at the Hunterian Museum and Gallery and across Glasgow’s Museums, including The Burrell Collection in the beautiful setting of Pollok Park. Plus there is the unique chance to experience Glasgow’s king of romance, Charles Rennie Mackintosh at the appropriately named House for an Art Lover, where a special concert of love songs will take place on the 13th February. You can also enjoy CRM’s unique romantic style at the Glasgow School of Art or while enjoying a tete-a-tete tea for two at the Willow Tea Rooms.
For art lovers who want something more contemporary there are plenty visual frissons at the Centre for Contemporary Art and The Lighthouse.
If you’re star struck, visit one of Europe’s finest Planetariums at Glasgow Science Centre for a romantic interlude gazing at infinite galaxies. But if you really want your feet to leave the ground why not try the Skypark at Xscape – and then, if you need to turn down the heat, there’s always the SNO!zone.
But even the coolest of cold fish will find romance at the Loch Lomond Aquarium SEA LIFE centre.
If the back seat of a bus brings back happy memories then Sightseeing Glasgow have a city wide tour that will bring you closer together with a view that changes by the minute.
Once you’ve exhausted all that the city has to offer, Rabbie’s Trail Burners and Timberbush Tours can take you out into some of Scotland’s most romantic scenery.
Of course, there may be couples who feel they’ve had enough red satin and heart shaped chocolate boxes. For them there is passion of a different type. A trip to Celtic, Rangers Football Club’s Ibrox Stadium or The Hampden Experience is an exposure to another type of hot, red-blooded obsession.
And if all that is too much there’s a steadying dram available just outside the city at the Glengoyne Distillery.
Lesley Judge, Chair of Glasgow’s Leading Attractions said,
‘We have something for all lovers in the city and its environs. Glasgow is often listed as one of the country’s most romantic cities and we believe we have something to suit every type of lover. From the Titanic experience to the House for an Art Lover and from the beautiful country on our doorstep to making sparks fly in the Science Centre we can cover most passions.
‘If your heart doesn’t beat faster after a trip to a selection of the city’s attractions then it won’t be our fault!’
