COP26 is set to take over Glasgow in the next few weeks, which will see many of the city's tourist attractions closed to make way for the climate conference. 

Some of the world's most prominent leaders, including Joe Biden and the Queen, will descend on Glasgow to discuss climate goals for the next ten years. 

As a result, many of the city's main tourist attractions will close to support the running of the conference. 

Here are all the venues closing in Glasgow during COP26 and the dates of closures.

Will the Emirates Arena stay open?

Emirates Arena will stay open however it is expected to be very busy due to events being held there throughout COP26. 

Why are these venues closing during COP26? 

A Glasgow Life spokeswoman said: "The significance of COP26 means that, inevitably, there will be an impact on how the city operates during the event.

"In supporting the delivery of COP26 activity, a small number of Glasgow Life venues will be closed to the public, either for part of or the duration of the conference.

"Across the wider venues we have reopened, it is our intention to minimise disruption and operate business as usual as far as possible."
