Glasgow: Scotland’s feisty urban metropolis

Despite its Victorian architectural legacy and former reputation for shipbuilding and industry, Glasgow has become a modern cosmopolitan city with a vibrant art and music scene that is sharply attuned to the world. Thanks to an ongoing urban renaissance, even the hotels here are edgy.

Glasgow is a fashion centre with world-class shopping and an exciting food scene, but it’s the welcoming Glaswegians that make it extra special. This city is also the ideal starting point for travellers continuing to Edinburgh and the mysterious lochs, verdant valleys and stately castles Scotland is best known for.

Glasgow Your Way

Couples
 
The Willow Tea Rooms are perfect for sharing some warm gingerbread or black pudding with your sweetheart while imagining what Glaswegian life was like back when internationally renowned architectural luminary Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed the place in 1903. The largest urban green space in Europe until 1994, the Pollok Country Park features over 360 acres of parkland. Stroll past the grazing Highland cattle over to the eclectic Burrell Collection—comprised of everything from Chinese ceramics to Rodin sculptures—before indulging in some tea and scones baked in the 19th century kitchen at Pollok House.
Family playgrounds
 
The lingering smell of floor polish and carbolic soap—as well as a genuine strap—make a visit to the Scotland Street School Museum all the more authentic. Three reconstructed classrooms in the old Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed schoolhouse give fascinating insight into what education was like during Queen Victoria’s reign, WWII, and the 1950s and ‘60s. The Glasgow West End Spy Trail is a self-guided walk with a fun mystery to solve, as you learn about the city’s history. Follow the trail directions through the historic area around Glasgow University, where the answers to the clues are located on monuments and buildings.
Travelling with friends
 
At the Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel, your group can either enjoy being introduced to vintage steam trains, cars, trolleys, prams and motorbikes, or get a kick out of revisiting vehicles from their own past. Highlights include the world’s oldest bicycle and a reconstruction of a 1938 Glasgow street front.
