Finding the Best Shows in Glasgow
Because of Glasgow’s wonderfully eclectic nature, it can be difficult to narrow down our recommendations to just one or two venues – which is a lovely problem to have.
In terms of theatre shows, in Glasgow you’ll find over 20 renowned theatres, each with their own unique merits.
Popular theatres in the city include the likes of the Theatre Royal (home to both the national Scottish Opera and Ballet companies), the Pavilion Theatre, King’s Theatre, Tron Theatre, and several others.
Glasgow is also home to several well-regarded performance schools including the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Performance Academy. However, Glasgow isn’t just known for its stage shows. One of the most famous cinemas in the world is situated in Glasgow too– the Cineworld on Renfrew Street.
Considered the world’s tallest cinema (as of 2022), this famous Glaswegian cinema stands at an impressive 203 feet and can sit over 4000 viewers across its 18 screens.
