There is an Ice Rink and a Big Wheel, the “Wheel of Excellence”, with glowing lights.

Even if you don’t skate, you can soak up the atmosphere amid the historic statues and buildings around the George Square and the illuminated Glasgow City Chambers.

Of course there are festive displays and Christmas Trees around the city shops too. This one is in Princes Square.

There is an allusion to toys, gifts and film themes.
