Top Things to Do in Glasgow this Christmas

Christmas is only around the corner, and with this in mind we’ve come up with top things to do in Glasgow this Christmas. If you happen to find yourself in or around Glasgow in December, you'll find there's plenty to do.

A visit to Santa

Santa is definitely on his way to Glasgow this year and the Style Mile Carnival is where you’ll find him. It happens in the city centre, so you can’t miss it. Santa will be there in all his glory in a horse drawn float as well as some other great performers to enjoy.

Christmas Markets

If you're in the mood for a little Christmas spirit, why not head to St George's and St Enoch’s Square? Warm yourselves up with some street foods and a hot drink. Then see if you can cross a few people off your Christmas list with the great selection of gifts on offer. There’s also a carousel and a big wheel, so there’s plenty of opportunity to have some fun while you’re there.


Weave your way down the Style Mile and browse the 1500 and more shops that Glasgow boasts. You’ll be bound to find some great Christmas presents for friends and family. There's St Enoch Centre, Princes Square, Buchanan Galleries and Argyll Arcade. Shops will be open for longer, so people have more time to spend shopping. You can then put their feet up and indulge in a warm meal and a drink after.

Ice Skating

Would Christmas be the same without ice skating – no it wouldn't. That’s why Glasgow puts on the best ice skating experience for its shoppers. You’ll find the city centre is open for skating most weekdays from noon, and from 10 till 10pm at the weekend. All you’ll need to do is to dress in warm clothes and boots and enjoy the festivities.
