5 Reasons to Visit Glasgow

Scotland's largest city is filled to the brim with music, art, drama, architecture and fantastic cuisine.  A great location for an electric city break!

1. Glasgow Cathedral - The Gothic giant built between the 12th and the 15gth centuries is the only cathedral to have survived the Protestant Reformation without significant damage. 

It's believed to be the original burial site of the Saint Kentigern (612 AD), otherwise known as Saint Mungo, the first bishop in the British kingdom of Strathclyde. 

Discover the Gothic stained-glass windows and visit the ancient crypt.  Plus like a lot of Glasgow's most beautiful sites, its free to enter!

2. Enviable Eateries - Glasgow is a great place to try some of Scotland's best delicacies. 

Look out for haggis served with bashed neeps (turnips), tattie scones, cranchan (a dessert of whipped cream and fresh raspberries fortified by Scottish oats and whisky) and cullen skink (a thick,creamy soup made of smoked haddock and served with crusty brown bread). Delicious!

3. Botanic Gardens - If you find yourself in the city on a sunny day, head straight to this urban sanctuary in the heart of Glasgow. 

The Botanic Gardens boast lovely landscapes, colourful plants and green open spaces perfect for picnics.  

Alternatively, unwind at the tea room and enjoy a traditional afternoon tea.

Don't miss Kibble Palace, a magnificent glass house designed by John  Kibble that houses the national collection of rare ferns, or the Palm House where tropical rainforest plants flourish.

4. The nightlife - Glasgow's reputation for live music is legendary, so much so that the city has been given UNESCO City of Music status. 

You can enjoy outdoor concerts in summer and music halls for the cooler months. 

Alternatively, head to the West End for amazing cocktail bars, craft beer haunts and traditional pubs aplenty.

 

5. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum - Another one of Glasgow's free favourites, the Kelvingrove is a definite must-see and has been popular with locals and visitors alike for over a century.

First opened in 1901, Kelvingrove contains 22 galleries of art, animals, ancient treasures, Scottish collections and much more. 

Open every day, its a great way to spend a few hours with your family or friends. 

5 reasons to visit Hastings

Take a fresh look a the south-coast town for family fun, chic boutiques and great eateries!

1. You'll love the old fashioned fun! - Hastings three mile seafront stretches from the fishing fleet to the pier, the double-decker promenade Bottle Alley and Grosvenor Gardens. 

Along the way, there are arcades and funfair rides. Don't miss Old Town Amusements, the ever-popular Hastings Adventure and Crazy Golf, or Flamingo Park - which has retro rides and attractions including Cinderella's Carousel, the dodgems, the ShowTime Funhouse and the Ghost Train. 

The pier has been rebuilt and revamped. Stroll along it for views, beach hut-style food and drinks kiosks, exhibitions, events and the Pavillion Restaurant. 

2. It has bags of charm - The Old Town has a cosy, medieval layout, and is packed with half-timbered houses and Georgian facades that conceal much older buildings. This is where you will find antique shops, boutiques, historic inns, galleries and seafood restaurants. 

Close to the water is The slad and Rock-a-Nore Road, instantly recognisable from its tall, black wooden huts, which provide weatherproof storage for nets and other fishing gear. 

Two historic funicular railways run from the town up to the sandstone cliffs. The oldest is the 150m West Hill Lift, which serves Hastings Castle and St Clement's Caves. The East Hill Lift claims to be the UK's steepest funicular and connects to Hastings Country Park. 

3. There's lots to see -  Hastings is home to some unusual but fascinating museums.  The best known is the Smugglers Adventure in St Clement's Caves.  In a spectacular setting and with 70 life-size figures of pirates and bootleggers, the world of smuggling is brought to life as you wander through the sandstone caverns and tunnels that lie inside West Hill. 

Another must-see is the True Crime Museum, which has plenty of macabre exhibits whilst the Shipwreck Museum is another quirky option that serves as a reminder of the dangers of the sea.

4. The food is delicious - For fresh-off-the-boat fish, head to the huts behind the beach on Rock-a-Nore Road, whilst for fish and chips, there are plenty of open-front shops on the seafront to choose from. 

If you have a sweet tooth, check out Only Coco Chocolates, an independent chocolate producer, or the Cake Room in the America Ground, which serves up enormous messy cakes. 

Hipster hotspot America Ground is also where you will find the best selection of veggie, vegan and gluten-free options, whilst the best pubs are to be found in the Old Town.

5. The castles and the clifftops are breathtaking - Situated just a few miles from the site of the Battle of Hastings' Norman motte-end-bailey castle, built immediately after William the Conqueror landed in 1066. 

It's not as impressive as nearby Battle Abbey, but the views are simply breathtaking, stretching from Beachy Head to Dungeness, and as far as France on clear days. 

On East Hill, is the Hastings Country Park, situated at the southernmost point of the High Weald Area of Natural Beauty with 660 acres of ancient woodland, cliffs and healthland. The scene of a Bronze Age fort, it's now known for its wooded valleys, and wildlife including fulars, peregrines and black redstarts.
