Trees, grass and a full campsite is to pop up in a Glasgow city centre street.

Passers-by will be able to experience a special set on Argyle Street on Friday, June 2.

Recalling the sounds and smells of the countryside, The Camping and Caravanning Club is inviting everyone to enjoy the setup.

The organisation will mark National Camping and Caravanning Week and invite anyone to sit in a unique camping pod and listen to a short guided meditation exercise.

It has been recorded by broadcaster and President of The Camping and Caravanning Club, Julia Bradbury.

She said: “Spending time outdoors has proven benefits for both your mental and physical wellbeing, and the Outjoyment Report has revealed those who camp are happier, more connected to nature and enjoy better wellbeing than those who don’t.

“With the research clearly highlighting the positive impact of being outdoors, we are taking to the streets of Glasgow with our pop-up camping pod to encourage the public to take a few moments out of their busy day to relax, unwind and enjoy a few calming breaths – giving them the chance to swap their busy city lives for just a few moments of pure outjoyment.”
