Get ready for temperatures that dip below freezing, plenty of rain, and even occasional snow when coming to Glasgow in this season. You’ll need to pack wisely for the year’s coldest weather in December, January, and February. Though it’s a less popular season among tourists, winter in Glasgow can still sparkle.
Annual national celebrations like St. Andrew’s Day (November 30), Hogmanay (New Year’s), and Burns Night (January 25) light up Glasgow’s darkest days.
Bargain-hunters will find the seasonal drop in hotel rates a major boon and a good reason to check out some luxury lodging. (Just avoid booking during major events.)
Only-in-winter traditions, like Christmas markets and ice rinks, give the city a storybook charm.
The whole city shakes off its winter slumber in spring, as days grow longer and temperatures warm. But this better weather draws tourists and locals alike out, so expect more energy and more crowds as the thermometer inches up.
Spring is the perfect time to explore Glasgow’s outstanding parks like Kelvingrove and Pollok Country Park, when the trees and flowers explode into megawatt color.
With spring’s warmer weather comes the resurgence of Glasgow’s great outdoor dining patios, rooftop bars, and beer gardens.
Leave those galoshes at home. Take advantage of April’s drier weather, since it’s among the least rainy months of the year in Glasgow.
Summertime fun vibes are in full effect during this season. By the solstice, daylight bathes the city nearly 18 hours a day, with temperatures peaking in July and August. And while downpours and drizzles are common in this season, neither Glaswegians nor tourists let it slow them down.
Glasgow is a city that’s proud of its sports teams, with two of Scotland’s biggest teams based in the city plus a pro rugby team. Score tickets to a match for a day out that showcases the city’s sport spirit.
Festivals and events bring live music, performances, and food vendors to Glasgow’s streets and parks. The West End Festival, The Merchant City Festival, Summer Nights at the Bandstand in Kelvingrove Park, and the TRNSMT Festival are just a few of the many ways to join the summer fun.
The joys of a Glasgow summer aren’t a secret, so prepare for price hikes and booked-solid hotels.
After the nonstop buzz of summertime, Glasgow slouches into a relaxed, cozy fall, with days growing shorter and temperatures cooling. Festivities continue, with celebrations that spotlight the season. Tip: Glasgow has a hidden dry season in October, which often sees less rain than the other months of fall.
Autumnal colors grace the city, bringing in warm reds, yellows, and oranges through the leaves. To immerse yourself in fall color, head to a treesy spot like Glasgow Green, Kelvingrove, or the Botanic Garden.
In Glasgow, easier hotel booking than in summer and lower rates are perks of the fall season.
Fall is a festival-filled season. Dance International Glasgow, multiple gin festivals, harvest fests, and major music events that span the spectrum from traditional to trance light up the autumn months.
