Glasgow can always be relied upon for insightful museums and a colourful music scene, but there’s always more to discover in this vibrant city. In this blog, we’ll uncover Glasgow’s Hidden Gems you must visit for the ultimate trip.

Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre

You may be thinking this is an obvious one as Glasgow is known for its thriving theatre life, yet the Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre is often overlooked, with fewer than 500 Tripadvisor reviews despite winning a 2022 Travellers’ Choice Award. Since 1989 they’ve been providing a unique experience for audiences with fascinating shows filled with magic. A crowd of carved figures and inanimate objects come together in astonishing choreography, whilst the set design and light show reveal an enchanting performance you’ll be sure to remember. We have a feeling this won’t be a hidden gem for long!
