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!
I went along to some post-natal training sessions with Lynsey, the Mighty Mama coach. Classes focussed on strengthening the pelvic floor and core. Lots of hard work (in a good way) but fun too. Kids can come along as well so no need to find childcare!
These are our 10 of the best family days our near Glasgow: a list of the places that we love to go and spend the day. Our Top Ten. The places we’ve returned to again and again. Some of them are free; some of them are most definitely not. Some of them are suited to rainy days and some are better for the dry days we’ve had so many of recently. Hopefully if you visit any of them, you’ll love them as much as we do!
You know those places that you walk or drive past almost every day, but you’ve never ventured in because you’re always on your way somewhere? Well Cook on Great Western Rd was one of those places for me. I made it in recently though, and was genuinely surprised by their freezer meals because they were so delicious!
We love a little trip into Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum for a few hours. It’s a huge space for the little ones to play in and a great place to meet up with a bunch of buggies. If you manage to read anything, that’s always a bonus!
The Glasgow Botanic Gardens are a lovely sanctuary in such a busy corner of the city. The playpark is fun and theres lots of space for the kids to run free. The Botanics are the perfect place to let the kids let off steam without travelling too far or spending any money. As a bonus, I get to see the gigantic cacti too!
DJ, bar, soft play, playdough, face painting, sandpit, Lego, balloons & good grub. Mini Manoeuvres is a truly excellent way to go clubbing. With your kids.
I was so looking forward to Jurassic Kingdom when I bought the tickets. From the advertising, it looked excellent. Dinosaurs that move and make noise and that could seem real to my little humans –[…]
We’ve only ever been to Bread Meats Breads as a couple before; on those nights we’re out without children, living it up in the city… But I was having a look at the new Bread[…]
The little lady loves a good playpark. I’m a fan too – outdoors, free, energy burning – perfect activity! So I thought I’d share our favourite playparks in Glasgow (or pretty nearby).
Fitdankbaby is my favourite exercise-with-baby class I’ve done; I love how much the babies are incorporated into your workout. Baby boy loved it too!
Running, bouncing, climbing, swinging, rolling, jumping… PlayGym is probably our most looked forward to activity of the week. We love it!
We heard about Rugbytots from a friend a while ago. Since the little lady is so physical I thought we’d go and try it out. And maybe it would tire her out…
We tried out our first ever Hartbeeps class last week. We’d heard about it from a few friends who went along to the class in St Enoch’s on a Wednesday, but we’ve never managed to[…]
Guest post coming from me today so here’s a short intro to myself and the kid – Rachel: mummy to my little lad who is two years old, living in Glasgow and having great fun[…]
We’re at the beach today! Not in the usual sense though. We’re in a giant sandpit (aka the Beach at Riverside) and it’s really nice. It’s been here for a few summers now. But I’ve never[…]
We found a brand new Toddler Sense class the other week that’s just up and running in Kelvinside. We found it entirely by accident – we’d gone along to the outdoor playgroup in the Children’s[…]
We went back to bounce & rhyme for the first time in AGES this morning. There’s songs & rhymes & stories & lots of other babies & toddlers. It’s still just as entertaining for the[…]
I love Montgomery’s Cafe. In the pre-child lives of my husband and I, it was our little local. Breakfast, lunch, cake, whatever. The Cafe I took the little lady today for lunch, and as usual, the food[…]
We were at our lovely little music class this morning – First Steps to Music. We’ve been going for over a year now & my little lady loves it. The Class First Steps to Music is[…]
