Glasgow Tower Reviews
A trip to the top of the glasgow tower will cost £3. A staff member will give you a guide of the engineering details of the tower first if you want to or go straight up to enjoy the view. You can... more »
we have visited the Science Centre many times over the years and this is the first time it has been open . Great views but do not go if you cannot stand heights as the lift has windows you can see... more »
The most amazing show I have seen, Pink Floyd's Dark side of the Moon in the Planetarium. I tried twice before to get there last year only to be stopped by snow in Glasgow itself and then snow around Glasgow airport meaning I couldn't get out of it when I got there..if you want a night to remember and you like music, go and see any show there..can't be missed for the price and the spectacle...first class. Hope to get to the Wall sometime.
its a free standing tower balanced on a single point . you can book discounted science center tickets in advance and see if the weather is alright to go onto the tower itself . serviced by lifts and in case of high winds , you ll need to get down the stairs. the entry to the tower is on the left hand side of the cafe. volunteers are very helpful and informative. it is best to take a toilet break and postpone lunch if you are scared of heights. the tower sways ever so gently , you can only realise it when you see the signboards in the tower swaying . its an experience for all adults and children alike. you can see all the major landmarks on the clydeside from the tower.
