Visiting Glasgow

Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and has much to the visitor, from culture and style, to the friendliness of its people.

Glasgow combines internationally-acclaimed museums and art collections, stunning architecture, vibrant nightlife, fantastic shopping and a diverse array of restaurants and bars.

Vibrant and energetic, Glasgow enjoys a year-round buzz with an arts scene that regularly produces cutting-edge productions.

Explore the unique and distinct neighbourhoods of Glasgow each with their own personality, vibe and hidden gems.

The city centre has a rich and varied architectural heritage with many fine Victorian structures and then there are the Art Nouveau masterpieces of one of the city's most celebrated sons, the  architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

As a UNESCO City of Music, Glasgow has a long-standing reputation for its live music scene, as well as a creative and cultural hub, home to all of Scotland’s national performing arts organisations including Scottish Ballet and the National Theatre of Scotland.
