Glasgow

 

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, and a key economic and cultural center for the northern UK.

Located at the west end of Scotland’s Central Belt on the banks of the River Clyde, Glasgow was long Scotland’s main industrial center.

In the past few decades, the city has transformed itself into a service-oriented economy, with a focus on commerce, tourism, and culture.

The city is known for its excellent parks and museums (most of which are free), dynamic music scene, and as a travel hub for those going to the Scottish Highlands or Islands.

Highlights:

Click highlighted activity to see details.
Cultural
Music
Glasgow's been famous for its music scene for several decades, with some top acts literally queuing to play at venues such as the Barrowlands or King' Tuts. There's plenty of venues where you're likely to see a good band (and lots of bad bands too); on any day of the week there should be at least several shows to choose from throughout the city. The greatest variety is on Thursday, Friday & Saturday.
Historic Landmarks
As befits a city that was at its richest through the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th, the center of Glasgow has a fine legacy of Victorian and Edwardian buildings with their lavish interiors and spectacular carved stonework. Outside of the central area the main streets are lined with the legendary tenements - the city's trademark 3 or 4 story residential buildings built from red or blonde sandstone which positively glow during the summer.
