Best Times to Visit Glasgow

The best time to visit Glasgow is the months between March and August when temperatures reach their peak and daylight hours are long. On the flip side, the winters are characterized by bitter cold and short days. Budget airlines, flying from London Heathrow (LHR) or other major hubs, have made Glasgow travel relatively affordable year-round. But to find deals on hotels, you should book a trip over the weekend when business travelers have returned home.

March-August

The most pleasant time to visit Glasgow is in the warmer spring and summer months. Average temperatures during these months peak in the mid 60s, and days are long, giving sun-starved locals up to 15 hours of daylight. And though the city isn't a huge tourism spot, many visitors do choose to come this time of year.
