Glasgow - Big city, big heart, big attitude

Welcome to a one-off city of contrasts.

Outgoing and laid back; down-to-earth and imaginative; forward-looking but fiercely proud of its history; irreverent but welcoming; handsome in its architecture yet willing to rebuild and rebuild again – there are so many facets to Glasgow, it’s hard to pin down what makes it such a memorable place to visit and explore. Maybe, as so many visitors will tell you, it’s the locals: friendly and outrageous and self-deprecating, often in the same breath.

A Cultural Hotbed

Six Turner Prize winners have come from Glasgow School of Art and the city is also the home of architectural geniuses Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Alexander "Greek" Thomson - their buildings can be seen throughout the city.

A city that pleases the palate

To unwind, savour the culinary delights of its many restaurants, bars and bistros. Trendy Merchant City and Finnieston are known for stylish eateries. Though what's so refreshing about Glasgow's foodie scene is the sheer variety - from American-style burger joints to laid-back Latin American eateries or Iranian Cafes, whatever mood you're in, you're sure to find a flavour for you.
