Christmas Family Fun

Family Fun In Glasgow This Christmas

There’s no greater city than Glasgow to find family-friendly fun during the Christmas period, but then again, we would say that, wouldn’t we? Well, let us prove it to you with our run down of the top five activities to get involved with if you’ve got little ones in tow during your break away.

Dazzling City Lights

A little ahead of the official Christmas countdown (December 1st, obviously!), the Christmas light switch-on takes place on November 19th and tickets are available by ballot. If you’re not lucky enough to bag yourself a few then don’t fret because just being out and about on the night the lights appear can be entertainment enough for wee ones. Take in the tinsel-like lights draped along Buchanan Street’s trees or the colourful variety around George Square after the switch-on has taken place, and we promise you won’t be disappointed.

Carnival Crazy

This event has really come into its own over the past few years and it’s easy to see why. See the colourful parade dance, sing and party its way down the Style Mile on November 26th – the perfect free afternoon out!

For those of you who want to give yourself the gift of rest and relaxation before the holidays begin, there’s a little treat awaiting you too. There’s nothing better than some downtime away from your responsibilities at home, so why not book yourself in to the Ambassador Hotel and use the code DEC10 at the time of booking to get 10% off any weekend in December? In keeping with the Christmas spirit, we wanted to throw in a little extra too, so not only will you get money off, you’ll get late checkout too! Breakfast is served until 10am on Sundays and we can’t think of a better start to the day than someone else doing the cooking for a change and filling your plate to the brim with freshly cooked bacon, eggs, black pudding and beans. Then, since you’ll have time to spare, why not head back to your room for a little shut eye before checkout, or a nice hot shower on what’s sure to be a cool, crisp morning in winter?

We think there’s nothing better than getting out and about in a new city and our regular deals are designed to encourage you to explore more. So, if you’re looking to book your next break, keep an eye on our offers page for updates and remember to book direct to receive your discount!
