August is typically the best time to fly to Glasgow, but there are other times where great deals are available. If weather is an important factor for you when considering when to fly to Glasgow, the warmest period tends to be July, with the wettest being January.

When is the best time to book a flight to Glasgow?

On the River Clyde on Scotland’s west central lowlands, Glasgow is one of Europe’s great cities, and one of the most beautiful. An economic powerhouse in the 19th century, Glasgow was built on wealth and innovation. Its Victorian architecture is magnificent. Many buildings were designed by local architects Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Alexander Thomson, built to express Glasgow’s standing as the British Empire’s second city. That one building, Templeton’s Carpet Factory, was designed to resemble the Doge’s Palace in Venice, gives some idea of how wonderful this city is.

Visitors arriving on cheap flights to Glasgow will discover that the city’s cultural offerings are every bit as impressive as its buildings. There are 13 museums, all offering free admission, exhibiting everything from medieval tapestries to 1950s trams.

Saving on admission fees will mean there is more money to be spent on another great Scottish passion – going out. Glaswegans are gregarious and the pubs of the city are lively year round. They also have a passion for shopping. After London, Glasgow is the UK’s largest retail centre.

Glasgow climate

Thanks to the warming influence of the Gulf Stream that flows up the Clyde estuary and the protective Clyde Valley hills, Glasgow has a mild climate. Extreme heat and cold are rare. Winters (December, January, February) are generally long and wet. There is occasional snow and very cold winds. Spring (March to May) is mild. Summer, the most popular time for travellers to book cheap flights to Glasgow, is unpredictable – the days can be mild and wet or warm and sunny. July sees the highest temperatures – about 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit).

When is the best time to fly to Glasgow?

Peak Season:
Most visitors take cheap flights to Glasgow during the summer months. This is when the most popular attractions will have extended opening times and although good weather is not guaranteed, this is the mildest time of the year to visit.

Off Season:
Winter is generally the off season, especially the weeks following Hogmanay.

Getting around Glasgow

Set out on foot to best explore Glasgow. If you’ve forgotten some good walking shoes, take advantage of the hop-on, hop-off City Sightseeing bus to make your way around. You can also head out to the water for a cruise on Loch Lomond or to the islands in the Firth of Clyde. 

The city’s public transportation will help you get around very easily. The local rail network is great and the buses are connected to the subway and trains. There are only a few night buses, but the local buses cover the day service very well. 

To get between the city’s centre and the West End, stick to the underground. A smart way to save money is to get a Roundabout Glasgow ticket, which allows unlimited underground and train travel for one day. Family passes are available too. 

Taxis are plentiful, but the rates will rack up quickly. You’ll find that taxi drivers have some of the best knowledge of the city though, so it may be worth it to you in the end. If you are driving into the city, leave your car at the park-and-ride stop located at the underground rail station outside Glasgow. When you’re in the city, you’ll wish you didn’t have a car. There are too many one-way streets, traffic jams and not enough parking to make it worth your while.

What is good to know if travelling to Glasgow?

  • The centre of the city is the heart of the shopping district. Buchanan Street, Argyle Street and Sauchiehall Street offer high-end and high-street fashion while the Merchant City area is more boutiquey.
  • Glasgow has its fair share of festivals. There are musical festivals (Celtic, Jazz, Piping, Orchestra), comedy festivals and theatre festivals, and, of course, Glasgow’s Hogmanay that takes place between November and January. A highlight of Hogmanay is Shindig, a weekend of music and dancing in celebration of St Andrew, Scotland’s patron saint.
  • Art Nouveau artist and architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh has left his best work throughout the city. The School of Art is considered his masterpiece combining Mackintosh’s love of nature with his travels to Europe. His work on the “art tearooms”, which he did at the behest of Catherine (Kate) Cranston, a local businesswoman, can be best seen at the Willow Tearooms in Sauchiehall Street.
  • Sports-mad visitors landing on cheap flights to Glasgow will make for a Celtic/Rangers game at Parkhead or Ibrox. Games between Glasgow Rangers FC and Glasgow Celtic FC are a hard-fought affair. Firhill is home to Partick Thistle FC. The Scottish Football Museum is at Hampden Park, home to the Scotland national team.

Glasgow airport overview

Glasgow International Airport (GLA) is located 8 miles (13km) southwest of Glasgow’s city centre. It is the second-busiest airport in Scotland and one of the busiest in the UK with more than 6 million passengers using it each year. Almost 30 airlines are based there, a mix of traditional, budget and charter carriers.

The terminal has three piers: West (international), Central (domestic) and East (low-cost, Ireland and Scottish islands). A “Skyhub” was created in 2007, connecting the main terminal and terminal two, which created space for an extended duty-free shopping area.

The airport has seen some improvements in recent years and runs well, with security moving at a reasonable pace and shopping and dining options on the rise. Despite it being an international facility, the airport is still on the small side, so pack a book or charge your mobile if you expect to have a lot of time on your hands.
