Glasgow is the best place to experience Mackintosh but the city itself has much to offer.
To visit Glasgow is to experience Scotland with style. It is a city with a flair for fashion and a talent for design. It is sophisticated and elegant yet still retains its legendary warmth and generous hospitality.
Enjoy fantastic shopping, amazing architecture and world-class museums. Discover Glasgow’s fabulous restaurants, great bars, friendly people and exciting events - all in one of Europe’s most dynamic and diverse city destinations.
Glasgow has an enviable portfolio of internationally renowned museums and galleries including the magnificent Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the unique Burrell Collection and the cool and contemporary Gallery of Modern Art.
It is a city where good food and great style are inextricably linked. You can quite literally eat your way round the world in Glasgow as the city’s café culture embraces the very latest trends in global cuisine, from the style & sushi bars of the Merchant City to the restaurants and brasseries in the hip west-end.
As the largest retail centre in the UK outside of London, not only is Glasgow tops for shops but its compact city centre and grid system make it easy to navigate during serious retail therapy! Giant high street malls such as the ultra modern Buchanan Galleries are just a short stroll from the elegance of Princes Square and Ingram Street, as well as the designer boutiques of the Merchant City. The cobbled mews and lanes of the city’s west-end are a treasure trove for anyone hunting antiques and rare books.
The city’s unique style is also 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.
Just beyond the city lies some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery. The local area is rich in history and heritage and each of its delightful country towns and villages has its own fascinating tale to tell.
