With the summer now in full swing, Glasgow weather has become extremely welcoming for all kinds of visitors. We are used to it and enjoy it, every year, but there is something special about being welcomed by a wet and windy day in April, August or September. It is truly the time of year that we come to the city of our dreams, and what a city it is! For many people, it is a rite of passage, stepping into an entirely new social world. This, of course, does not mean that they do not have a lovely time in Glasgow, as anyone who has been to the city will tell you. There is a lot of charm about this city, whether you are an old school student looking for a great place to learn, or a first time visitor trying to find out just what it is about.
One of the great things about the weather in Glasgow is that it has four main seasons. There is the long weekend of June, from which we draw most of our energy away for the summer months, until we hit the wet, windy, and wonderful July, with its record high temperatures. Then, on the other end of the scale, there is the long weekend of September, which sees us emerge from the deep freeze of winter into the balm of summer, before the long weekend of October, which brings the long, beautiful, and idyllic Christmas. There are numerous events and festivals throughout the year, and it would be an understatement to say that they are world renowned, attracting people from all over the UK and beyond.
So, if you are looking for the best time of the year to visit Glasgow, then the best time for you is definitely going to be April, June or york. There are plenty of exciting festivals, events, and attractions that you can enjoy, whilst at the same time being protected from the elements. If you do happen to be in Glasgow in June or July, then you will find that it is still relatively mild, although not necessarily as dry and breezy as you would have experienced during its summer days – so if you were thinking of a nice wet and windy getaway, this is probably not the peak time for you to visit. However, if you were coming in October, you could experience a different climate altogether.
