Glasgow CollageWelcome to Glasgow, Scotland, UK.

There’s so much to explore and enjoy in this beautiful, vibrant city. You’ll find world-class visitor attractions, diverse neighbourhoods, stunning architecture, a vibrant food and drink scene and legendary nightlife.

Housing one of Europe’s largest civic art collections, Glasgow has a fantastic mix of worldclass museums, galleries and award-winning visitor attractions, with many free to visit. It’s also the only place in the world that has a concentration of attractions and architecture created by the iconic Charles Rennie Mackintosh; from his Art Nouveau wonders to the medieval Glasgow Cathedral and neo-Gothic University of Glasgow, the city has a rich and varied architectural heritage. Enjoy exploring unique and distinct neighbourhoods, each with their own personality, vibe and hidden gems.

Glasgow has an ever-evolving food and drink  scene and Finnieston is considered the city’s ‘foodie quarter’, with a brilliant mix of cool, quality and affordable venues. When it comes to bars, it’s no longer just about Scotland’s national drink, whisky: Glasgow is firmly part of the craft beer and gin revolution with a number of independent breweries and dedicated gin bars popping up across the city.

Glasgow is consistently voted as the top place to shop in the UK outside London’s West End. There is no shortage of mega malls, well-known brand names and speciality shopping, as well as fashion brands and independent boutiques; visitors really are spoilt for choice!

Exploring a little further afield, you can ignite your sense of adventure with snow sports and rock climbing or just 30 minutes from the city, you can discover the beauty of Loch Lomond. Golf fans can also travel easily from Glasgow to championship standard golf courses and if you’d like to see how whisky is produced, a distillery visit is a must.

From a cutting edge arts scene that’s envied across the globe to family friendly attractions and unique visitor experiences, there really is something for everyone in Glasgow!
