Flights to Glasgow
What to know before you fly to Glasgow?
If you’re looking at flights to Glasgow, don’t let the cold winter put you off. Hogmanay, the Scottish New Year’s Eve celebration, is the biggest event on the Scottish festive calendar and an experience you’ll never forget.
Another travel tip for Glasgow? The locals speak English but their accent is so thick, it’s considered a dialect in itself: Glaswegian. Don’t be afraid to ask someone to repeat themselves if you haven’t understood what they’ve said. Most Glaswegians are aware that their accent takes a while to get used to.
Currency is the pound sterling (￡) and Haggis is the national dish you absolutely must try.
