Fun Fair in George Square
Enjoy the festive spirit with family and friends this Christmas at the festive fun fair, a must for your ‘things to do in Glasgow’ list. Take pictures beneath thousands of twinkling lights set against the backdrop of City Chambers, perfect for your Instagram! Enjoy stunning views of the city from the 100ft plus observation wheel, delight at the traditional Victorian carousel, helter-skelter and if you’re brave enough, the flying chairs. Soak in the festive atmosphere with singers, dancers and surprise guests on the performance stage every afternoon, all with a jolly festive theme. Delight the little ones with a visit to Santa’s snow globe, as well as Santa’s flying balloons and a festive train ride. It’s a guaranteed great day out for young and old.
Ice Skating in George Square
If you fancy yourself as the new Torville & Dean, get yourself down to the ice rink in Georges Square this December. They provide everything you need for a fun session on the ice including skates and children’s skating aids. It’s sure to be a fun day out for the whole family and a hilarious outing for groups of friends. Practice your pirouettes or ramble along like Bambi on ice, or if you’re feeling cautious grab a hot chocolate from a nearby stall and wait in the viewing area, safe on solid ground! There is also a chill-out zone, a calming and relaxing safe space ideal for any visitors with sensory issues. The rink opens 7 days, from 10am to 10pm, the same as the Christmas fair (except for 25th December & 1st January).
IRN Bru Carnival
Did you know that Europe’s largest indoor carnival is happening in Glasgow this Christmas? Taking place in the SEC, about 30 minutes by foot or 15 minutes by car from our accommodation in Glasgow, the IRN-BRU Carnival has thrills for all ages and bravery levels. Running from December 23 to January 15, there is plenty of time to book a visit and test your limits on the many rides and attractions which include rollercoasters, kiddies’ rides, haunted houses, carnival games, stalls and more. Advanced booking is advised as the carnival can be very busy with groups of friends and families spending time together.
Christmas Market in Glasgow
If you’ve had your fill of rides and skating, make your way to the wonderful Christmas market taking place at St Enoch’s this year. Favourites of St Enoch’s Christmas Market will return including street food stalls, a marshmallow toasting station, and the Bavarian moose bar and swing grill where you can grab mulled festive drinks. Grab some beautiful handmade crafts from local makers or sample some delicious festive food and drink. The market runs 7 days from Friday, November 18th 2022 until Tuesday, January 3rd 2023 (except for 25th December & 1st January). There are also carnival rides and Santa visits for lucky children. It’s the perfect place to spend a chilly afternoon warming up with some hot chocolate or mulled wine.
