The largest city in Scotland, at the heart of the largest urban area in the country, Glasgow has a long history as a shipping and industrial centre. However in recent years Glasgow has done much to promote the arts and its architectural heritage. As a result there are now a range of excellent museums and galleries for visitors to enjoy. Glasgow is also a shopping paradise, second only to London for sheer volume and variety. It's also just so stylish too, with funky bars, boutique hotels and vibrant nightlife.
The city's arts scene is world-class. Over 200 arts organisations, including Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera, are based there, creating the cutting-edge productions and attracting high-profile exhibitions that led to the city being crowned as a European City of Culture.
Surrounding Glasgow is some of the best of Scotland's scenery, from the rolling hills of the Clyde Valley to the beautiful walking country of East Dunbartonshire that borders the south-west Highlands. Exploring further, you'll find that many of the towns and villages in the area such as Paisley, Hamilton, Biggar, Greenock, Gourock and of course the amazing New Lanark World Heritage Site make great day excursions from the city and offer a range of attractions that make discovering their rich history a real joy.
