Glasgow - Your Guide to a Vibrant City

Glasgow is famed for its warm and friendly people, so much so that it was voted ‘Friendliest city in the world’ in a Rough Guide poll. What’s more, the city itself has a well-deserved position in National Geographic’s Top 20 Best of The World destinations. With its vibrant night-life, modern art galleries, world-renowned museums and easily navigated city centre, it’s easy to see why Glasgow thrills thousands of holidaymakers every year.

What to see in Glasgow

No trip to the city would be complete without a tour of fascinating Art Nouveau buildings designed by Glasgow’s most famous architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Be sure to visit the stunning Glasgow School of Art, as well as Mackintosh House if you have time.

Other major attractions include the magnificent Glasgow Cathedral, the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, the Glasgow Science Centre and the impressive Tall Ship, a living testament to Glasgow’s heritage of ship-building excellence.


The Countryside

If you want a day away from the bustle of the city, it’s only a short-drive from Glasgow into the stunning Scottish countryside, where you’ll find lochs, mountains and breath-taking coastline at every turn.

In fact, it’s only 30 minutes drive from the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, where you’ll find over 700 square miles of incredible Scottish countryside, as well as Loch Lomond itself, Britain’s largest inland stretch of water.
