Hamilton Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Hamilton?
Originally a farming community, the town grew with the influence of the Hamilton family who took over the town in the 18th century. Farming continued to be an important aspect of the town’s life until overspill from the development of Glasgow boosted its growth. Today it’s an important centre for the service industry and has a nascent tourist industry.

How Easy is it to get to Hamilton?
There are two international ways to get into Hamilton; through Glasgow International and Prestwick International Airport. Both have a wide range of overseas destinations and with good rail links, especially from Glasgow Airport, you can reach Hamilton in a matter of under thirty minutes from each airport. Hiring a car in Hamilton is a good option for those who prefer not to drive to Hamilton.

What is There to see and do in Hamilton?
The first stop on your list should be the Low Parks Museum which is one of the great buildings built by the Hamilton family. It’s free to go in and you’ll learn much of the influence the Hamilton family had on the region. The 19th century mausoleum is also fascinating; it’s the former resting place of the Hamiltons. Finally Craignethan Castle, just outside Hamilton is another building built by the Hamiltons and is a good place to while away a few hours.
