Why stay near Intu Braehead Shopping Centre and Arena
With one million square feet of stores, food outlets and entertainment areas, Intu Braehead is much more than your average shopping centre – it’s like a little world unto itself on the banks of the Clyde. If you want a bit of retail therapy, then look no further: the complex houses over a hundred big names including Apple, Gap and IKEA.
But there is plenty to do at Intu Braehead Shopping Centre other than just flashing your credit card. Soar at Intu Braehead, a huge, state of the art activities and events centre. It boasts a 12-screen cinema with IMAX, an Xscape adventure complex, a curling rink and a 4000 seat Arena which has hosted the Davis Cup and the World Boxing Championship as well as artists such as Beyoncé and Oasis.
Sporty types can channel their inner Spider-Man on one of the tallest freestanding climbing walls in the UK, or slalom away on a 168m long skiing slope with real snow. As for the kids, they can while away the hours happily at Gambado, a play centre with an F1 themed go-kart track.
And when it’s time to recharge the batteries, Intu Braehead Shopping Centre offers a range of places to eat and drink from a luxury champagne and cocktail bar to family-friendly cafes and bakeries, from Italian, Chinese and Mexican restaurants to familiar fast food and takeaway outlets. Many of these run special offers, and it’s worth keeping an eye on the shopping centre’s Twitter feed @intuBraehead for announcements.
Another major indoor venue in Glasgow is the SSE Hydro arena, a venue for 13,000 spectators located on the site of the SECC. Built for the 2014 Commonwealth Games is the Emirates Arena on London Road G40 3HG.
Where Should I Stay for cheap places to stay ?
Big, modern, purpose-built hotels are clustered around Glasgow Airport. While these aren’t cheap hotels necessarily, if you prefer their slightly anonymous style and guest rooms with all mod cons, then it’s worth checking for deals. For character and a sense of being immersed in the city, there’s no substitute for Glasgow’s fashionable west end, a doorway to sights such as the Kelvingrove Art Galleries and Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre.
Although catering to the well-heeled with spas and plush boutique hotels, the area is also a great hunting ground for affordable bed and breakfast accommodation. Traditional family-run guest houses offer quiet rooms and the cosy comforts of home away from home, while hostels in picturesque Victorian town houses supply period charm on a budget and are ideal for backpackers and younger trippers.
If you’re after something more quirky and colourful for the night, there are some unusual B&B’s in the neighbourhood – in Yoker on the Clydebank, for instance, you can stay on a trawler converted into a bed and breakfast. Popular in the city is also renting a self catering apartment for 1 night, 2 nights or the weekend (short term).
One of the most popular hotels near Braehead Arena is Glasgow Pond Hotel, set in Glasgow’s fashionable West End. The hotel lies around Nuffield Hospital, Gartnavel Royal and Queen Elizabeth General Hospital.
