What’s On For Kids this Weekend in GlasgowWhat’s On For Kids this Weekend in Glasgow
Added: 27 Mar 2014
Cycling fans should get ready for the freshnlo Pedal For Scotland Glasgow Family Ride on Sunday. There’s lots to do including a ride around Glasgow Green as well as entertainment featuring stunt ace Danny McAskill.

Doors Open Day - Glasgow
Doors Open Day officially starts on Monday 15 with a programme of heritage walks and talks celebrating some of the wonderful buildings in Glasgow. The highlight will be next weekend when many buildings open their doors for the public. What’s On For Kids really likes the idea of visiting those places normally closed to the public: Glasgow High Court, King’s Theatre Tours, The St Francis Centre and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Of course, the city’s museums and other attractions will also be running tours and special events - The Lighthouse looks good fun (time for a Mackintosh-inspired selfie) and Pollok House. Also remember to take part in The Great Dormouse Scavenger Hunt - great to keep kids from getting bored.

Southside Souk
The Southside Souk is back! Following the success of the first one back in June, there’s another chance to spend the afternoon chilling out at the Bookery in Pollok Park. There’ll be live music, fantastic food and arts and crafts workshops. A highlight has to be a performance from the Osiligi Warriors from Kenya.

Elsewhere, Wrestling fans can head over to Bridgeton for some Pride Wrestling.

Out of town, head to Kelburn for a Ranger Science Weekend or the Wheels and Wings Show at National Museum of Flight over in East Fortune.

And Glasgow Tower is still open! This is the tallest, free-standing building in Scotland and is a real feat of engineering. It is the only structure ON EARTH capable of rotating 360 degrees into the prevailing wind. If you’ve been down to Pacific Quay, you’ll know that the prevailing wind is pretty strong. Anyway, the Glasgow Tower has been closed more times than open so now’s your chance!

And another thing
What do you think? We’ve recently launched a mobile site - in fact you might even be using this now. We’d love to have your feedback - anything you don’t like and anything you do like. If you are on instagram, tag your pic with #wawdt and it will be added to our gallery of great days out.

Book now
Disney on Ice celebrates 100 years of Magic and their UK-wide tour starts at Braehead Arena on 26 September.
