About Glasgow

Glasgow is one of Europe’s most exciting destinations, which combines the energy and sophistication of a great international city with some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery.

Named by Lonely Planet as one of the world’s top ten must-see cities (2009), Glasgow is home to more than 20 world class museums and art galleries. The city’s impressive portfolio includes the iconic new Riverside Museum, a breathtaking landmark building on the banks of the River Clyde and a fitting home for the city’s world-class transport collection and the internationally renowned Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum - Scotland’s most visited free tourist attraction. And no visit is complete without experiencing the Art Nouveau genius of Glasgow born artist, architect and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

The city’s unique style is stamped on its year-round events programme, which offers live performances, festivals and entertainment fifty-two weeks of the year and the recent designation as a UNESCO City of Music, has firmly set the seal on Glasgow’s reputation as one of Europe’s premier cultural capitals.

Glasgow is also a shopper’s paradise - the city’s Buchanan Street has recently been voted one of the world’s top 10 shopping streets. Glasgow is home to shops to suit all styles from international high street stores to designer boutiques.
