Glasgow has loads of indoor places and activities that are either completely free to visit, or pretty low cost. Here’s a list of some of our favourites we’ve visited in the past 5 years!
When my first baby came along, one of the most important things to me was getting out of the house. So for any first time parents out there, here is a little list of my favourite things to do with a new baby. Things I wish I’d done more of when it was easy to!
“Build” your own adventure day out on the Glasgow Subway. Great for rainy or sunny days. You can make it as low cost as you like. Choose your stops and make your own adventure day up from this list!
Our 2020 days out are organised! A Historic Scotland membership would make the perfect gift for any family (or anyone) who likes getting out and exploring.
Take an elfie selfie with at the Fort & post to social media with the hashtag #elfatglasgowfort & you’ll be entered into a £250 gift voucher prize draw!
One of the best things we started doing a few years ago was asking family to get the kids vouchers for days out or annual passes instead of toys. So here is a wee list of memberships that we’ve absolutely loved.
My best advice if you’ve got tickets is to go with an open mind; see it through your kids’ eyes. Don’t let the bad reviews ruin it for you. Expect to enjoy it and you will.
Last week we finally managed to get along to check out the new soft play at Kelvin Hall. The wee man absolutely loved it, and I really appreciated how bright and clean it was!
The little lady and I had a wee mummy daughter date & went along to iMOTO X, Europe’s biggest indoor electric motorbike track. We had the BEST time!
Santa is everywhere in December & I think seeing him too much can sometimes take a bit of magic away. Especially for slightly older kids. So here some of my fave non-Santa related festive activities if you want to avoid the man in red!
A wee run down of all the firework displays in and around Glasgow for fireworks night! Most are free. Loads of options to choose from!
Things to do in Glasgow in Autumn for families. Free stuff, outdoors, indoors, cosy times at home… Loads of ideas for activities and events this Autumn.
Outdoor playgroups & forest schools in Glasgow for kids 0 – 12. Climbing trees, playing with sticks and mud, den building, marshmallow toasting, all the rustic fun!
All the best Halloween events in Glasgow for families. Halloween family parties, spooky walks & trails, creepy crafts, movies and some brilliant daytrips.
This latest installation at Tramway is truly fantastic. It’s a full on sensory experience; for everyone. Just be aware with young kids that it’s no touching!
We always have a great time at Mugdock Country Park. It’s a huge open space to explore with a great castle and a nice wee playpark. Totally free as well, with free parking.
The Wallace Monument has beautiful views, height, stairs to climb, interesting exhibits on the way up, lots of history and a really nice wee walk to get there and back. We all really enjoyed it.
Lamont Farm Project is very small and very rustic, but it’s a great place to spend an hour wandering round and seeing some cute animals. The little man really enjoyed it here, patting the friendly cat and the rabbits. Sweet little place.
Reidvale Adventure Play Area is a really wonderful wee community driven place right in the heart of Dennistoun. There’s so much for kids to do and loads of space for them to just play and be kids.
Kelburn Country Park is a fantastic place to spend a day. The Secret Forest is one of the most magical things I’ve done with the kids. The whole place is rustic and lovely and the glen is beautiful. A great day out with the kids.
The Fullarton Fairy Trail is a really sweet little activity. There are fairy doors to fin, a nice playpark at the end and Troon Beach is only a 5 minute drive away. A lovely wee afternoon out, and it’s totally free!
