Clydebank is historically known for its background in engineering and industrial growth. The small Scottish town consists of a population made up by roughly forty thousand people and a lot of greenery. The winters months can definitely be rough for travelers, but throughout the summer is a perfect time to visit for friends seeking adventure and families seeking some pleasant time away. This town of infrastructure and intelligence certainly portrays itself as such through its various attractions and activities.
Getting to Clydebank
While Clydebank a few popular spots, it is not one of the easiest places to reach via public transportation. Sitting four hundred miles away from London, and only seven miles from Glasgow, Scotland, there are a few different routes available. The easiest, and most direct passage towards Clydebank is by flying to Glasgow Airport. From the airport there are three different methods of travel- train, bus, and car. Driving from Glasgow to Clydebank is short- roughly fifteen minutes. There are several major trains running between the two towns that can get visitors to and fro without much problems (but booking ahead of time is advised). Same goes for transportations via the public busing system.
While Clydebank isn’t known for any specific festivals or parades, they make up for that during the summer through the unique range of experiences they offer.
The bulk of attractions featured around the town are targeted at children and their respective families. The Play Dome offers a variety of water rides and activities including a pool, wave machine, river rapids, and easy access to a beach area. Then there is the Clydebank Museum, which gives visitors a look into the industrial history of Clydebank as well as large model ships and ever changing galleries.
With such beautiful green landscapes Clydebank is the perfect place to put young and old golfing skills to the test. There are golf clubs for adults who are serious about their game as well as smaller areas for children. The Jurassic Parrr Adventure offers the entire family a fun golfing time.
That leaves the largest and most popular attraction in all of Clydebank: The Titan Crane. For sightseers and adventurers alike The Crane promises views and thrills. Throughout the summer months specifically there are a variety of adrenaline pumping activities occurring. The 164 foot bungee jump drop is an exhilarating experience for those willing to take the risk. Same goes for the 150 foot free fall abseil and swings that go up to 70 miles per hour! Definitely not for the faint of heart. While these activities are ongoing throughout the summer each has its own specific schedule and dates that can be checked out prior to visiting.
