Omega invites you to Glasgow – European City of Culture, garden city and one of the top 10 tourist cities in Europe.

They have a Tall Ship floating museum that has sailed round the world four times, an 800–year–old cathedral, and a Lighthouse showcasing designs by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, who also provided the House for the Art Lover in Bellahouston Park and the famous Willow Tea Rooms in Sauchiehall Street.

Then there's the Science Centre on the Quay, with pop–up parachutes, Mindball displays and a 3D Imax with 12 kilowatt speakers and a screen the size of a football field.

And let's not forget the Style Mile, all the best shopping packed into a few streets, with great bars, boutiques and restaurants too.

Glasgow is a terrific place to go for a weekend, with a buzzing and friendly vibe and a fantastic night–life, and this great–value Omega hotel break includes return rail travel and three nights at the 3 star Ibis Styles Glasgow Centre with Scottish breakfast.
