    Campervan hire in Glasgow

    Inhabited since 4,000 BC, Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan destinations. A thriving, cultivated city with an energy and excitement unmatched by many other places in the United Kingdom, it is a very distinctive city and one that exemplifies the very best of urban Scotland.

    With its charming, centuries-old appeal and dazzling variety of art and architecture, this robust city set on the banks of the River Clyde is a bustling, forward-thinking hub of enterprise and ideas blessed with a fine array of chic and innovative attractions, many of which are absolutely free of charge.

    Glasgow has always had a determination to be different from the rest of Scotland, which it has achieved through a unique juxtaposition of sandstone and steel architecture and some of the finest Victorian buildings in the whole of the United Kingdom.

    Centred around Merchant City, the beating heart of Glasgow’s historic centre, there are many old buildings that have been restored and converted into cutting-edge theatres, museums and galleries alongside an ever-evolving dining scene featuring many eateries specialising in culinary experimentation with a Scottish twist.

    A leading car hire broker, Auto Europe was founded over 60 years ago and today operates over 24,000 pick-up points in 180 different countries. The company takes immense pride in guaranteeing the lowest rental rates in any destination worldwide, offering the widest range of vehicles and services including campervan hire in Glasgow.

    Visiting Glasgow and its environs is most enjoyable in an Auto Europe campervan, with a great variety of attractions to see both in and around the city. Once the city sightseeing has been done, why not take to the road in Scotland and explore some of the country's other attractions, including Edinburgh located just 50 miles (one hour and a half's drive) east of Glasgow.

    More information about Glasgow

    Glasgow’s spiritual heart is its impressive cathedral founded in 1136, one of the finest examples of medieval architecture still remaining in Scotland. The building’s interior features a magnificent collection of historic carved stones, a 15th-century stone screen, the Blacader Aisle and St Mungo’s 7th-century tomb. The nearby Necropolis complements the cathedral by providing visitors with some spine-tingling moments amid crumbling temples and other ancient monuments.

    Representing a large slice of the city’s heritage, Scotland’s most visited modern art centre is the ultra-innovative Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) and its assorted galleries which collectively have given the city one of the world’s most vibrant contemporary art scenes. Housed in a stunning Victorian building in the centre of the city, the extensive collection includes Marochetti’s iconic statue of the Duke of Wellington.

    Another of Glasgow's must-see attractions is the Burrell Collection, a masterful display of rare treasures belonging to the 19th-century shipping magnate, Sir William Burrell, who spent much of his fortune on collecting rare art and unique artefacts. Now one of Europe’s most popular museums, visitors flock to admire its vast array of medieval art, 19th-century French paintings and Chinese ceramics.

    Glasgow’s award-winning transport museum, the Riverside Museum, houses a fine collection of old trams, buses, trains, bicycles and classic cars, plus some street scenes from a bygone era in a stylish, state-of-the-art building. Moored alongside the museum is the Tall Ship, built in the city's shipyards in 1896 and today an icon of Glasgow’s ship-building heritage, besides being a fun attraction for the kids.

    Housed in an iconic red sandstone building, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is Glasgow’s largest civic collection comprising 22 excellent galleries displaying some 8,000 items, including Dali’s Christ of St John of the Cross. With its splendid rural setting within the boundary of Kelvingrove Park, this free tourist attraction ranks as one of the most popular places to visit with your motorhome hire in Glasgow. Its life gallery includes dinosaurs and other prehistoric mammals as well as some fascinating family-focused displays highlighting the need to safeguard our natural habitats for future generations.
