Celtic Park has been named as one of the best tourist attractions in the WORLD by TripAdvisor.

The holiday ratings experts unveiled the winners of its annual Travellers’ Choice “Best of the Best Things to Do” Awards for 2024 based on the quality and quantity of reviews on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. And the home of the Scottish champions scooped the top spot as the single best attraction in the world for a family day out.

The hugely popular tour has racked up more than 2,000 five-star reviews on TripAdvisor, beating other activities such as a Desert Safari in Dubai and a Dolphin Boat Ride at Clearwater Beach in Florida. The tourist attraction at the Hoops' iconic stadium in the east end of Glasgow offers visitors "behind-the-scenes access, opportunities for photos, and a look at interactive exhibits".

One review said: "Exceptional tour, great history of a remarkable football club. Family all had a great day out with a knowledgeable tour guide."

Another read: "Had such a lovely time on our tour. Eric was very friendly and knowledgeable about everything. We had a toddler with us and he tried to involve him and other kids in the tour to make it more interesting for them. You don’t need to be a Celtic fan to enjoy this tour. A must do if you are in Glasgow."

While this visitor added: "Big Davie made the day for us. So knowledgeable and funny. It was amazing to live and breathe Celtic. Loved every minute."

A Parkhead spokesperson said: “We are delighted that our visitor experience has been recognised in this way. This level of recognition is testament to the knowledge and passion of our guides who tell the Celtic story so brilliantly, bringing to life the club’s rich history.

“The Tour gives visitors a real insight into the Club’s wonderful history, allowing guests to see the country’s biggest club stadium, trophies of the past such as the European Cup and of course the domestic trophies which we are so pleased to have once again delivered to our fans.

“Thousands of visitors from right across the globe enjoy the Tour experience each year and we are delighted that this has become so successful and so popular.”
