Glasgow Day Out: Kimble's breakfast, St Enoch Centre, Kelvingrove Museum, Baffo Lunch and Riverside Museum.

I recently got a very exciting email from Glasgow Life, inviting me, my husband and the kids to take part in two days out in Glasgow, packed with activities for the little ones and some yummy food. We couldn't say no! Here's day 1 our little adventure.

We started with a lovely breakfast at Kimble’s which is one of my favourite places in Glasgow. They do the best hot chocolate and sell incredible treats! 

We got a table upstairs with lovely views of the city and the kids had a wee look at the menu and did some colouring.

 As you can guess, both of them ordered pancakes. But not just any pancakes, they were accompanied by fresh fruit, whipped cream and marshmallows! Yum!

 Mia patiently waiting. 

 Scott opted for the big breakfast and it looked amazing! The black pudding was to die for!

 I chose Eggs Royale - an English muffin topped with Scottish smoked salmon, poached eggs & hollandaise. It was absolutely delicious! 

 Runny egg yolk... Yummy!

 We also had lattes and the kids enjoyed orange juice.

 After we finished our breakfast, the kids got lollipops and they were super pleased, as you can see. I can't recommend Kimble's enough for a coffee break, lunch or breakfast!

 After Kimble's, we headed to have some fun at St Enoch centre.

 The food court upstairs looks amazing! Just look at those fun seats! 

 There was an indoor beach as well and the kids loved it!

 It looked so beautiful and it was a lot of fun for Zac & Mia.

 We also did a little bit of shopping. Mia couldn't resist a Peppa toy and Zac picked some cool gadgets.

 Once we were all shopped out, we headed to the Kelvingrove Gallery & Museum. It's one of my favourite places in Glasgow.  Kelvingrove has been ranked in the top 15 most visited museums in the world, it  has 22 themed, state-of- the-art galleries displaying 8000 objects. The entry is free, which is amazing!

 The kids loved seeing all the animal displays and touching the interactive pieces.

We were lucky to be given a kid friendly tour, but it's an amazing experience with or without a tour. 

 There's plenty of fun things to do and see inside.

 The bees are just incredible to watch! We even spotted the Queen Bee!

 How cool is this!

 Mia is obsessed with spiders so this was her little moment!

 Crawling through the tunnels.

 And here is a haggis - hahaha! So funny, I love Scottish humour.

We were also really lucky to be invited to the FRANK QUITELY: THE ART OF COMICS Exhibition, featuring some of the most iconic characters such as Superman, Batman and X-Men and the largest collection of the artists work ever displayed. 

 There was loads of interactive stuff to do.

 Zac loved seeing all the characters. He's cuddling a dog from the gift shop here. So cute.

 Kids spent ages at this wheel!

And they also played some superhero dress up!

How incredible does this look!

 I wish we had more time to look at everything up close, but we had to leave for our lunch.

  Next, we headed to Baffo, which is located opposite Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and it's a newly opened pizzeria. Perfect spot for lunch!

 We ordered a Margherita to share, chips and some Italian sides. All absolutely scrumptious!

And a big antipasti platter too. Yum!

 Baffo is a such a lovely place and the staff were very nice and helpful. And most importantly, we all loved the food.

  Last but not least, it was time for the Riverside Museum. I've been meaning to take the kids there for ages and it finally happened. Free entry and £1 parking - perfect for families! The building itself looks incredible and it is full to the brim of amazing pieces displaying Glasgow’s rich industrial heritage.

 Mia and Zac loved all the cars. So did my husband.

It was great to be able to see classics like this one.

 But my favourite part was this old street with little shops and carriages. Amazing!

We were given a tour by Michelle (who was the nicest person ever!) and she told us all about the museum and showed us around.

 Mia only took a few tantrums, but here's a cute picture of her.

 It doesn't matter what age you are, you will love this place!

 Zac loved this bit of the museum.

 This installation looks incredible!

 The kids also took part in a Sea Creatures Workshop, making little 3d sea creatures out of clay.

 Fireman Zac! We have to go back asap, as we didn't get to go to the little beach and to see the boat, because the kids were absolutely exhausted!

And a little ice cream outside! Yum!

We had so much fun visiting the museums, eating yummy food and shopping in Glasgow. All p;aces are linked, if you fancy checking them out. And keep your eyes peeled for Part 2 of our Glasgow adventures.
