17th December 2016
Whether you’re spending New Year’s eve with the boys, the bairns or the better half, we’ve chosen the places to kick start your celebrations in style. Dubai for some luxury, Leeds for a party or Glasgow for fun with the family.
WITH THE FAMILY
Spending New Year’s Eve with the family usually means having quality time together with lots of fun and relaxation. Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland, ticks all the boxes with a bustling, cultural city centre and access to beautiful landscapes only 30 minutes away in the form of Loch Lomond, the gateway to the Scottish Highlands. A must visit for the children is the Glasgow Science Centre or the Irn Bru Carnival which comes to town at Christmas time. The most iconic New Year’s Eve party takes place at George Square with a party that includes live music, highland dancing and traditional Scottish food and drinks. Named as a ‘Must Visit Destination’ by the Guardian and The New York Times, Glasgow is the ultimate family getaway this New Year.
