Once famous for being a busy port city in Scotland’s western lowlands, Glasgow has shaken off its industrial background in favour of a trendier reputation. This cultural hub is now more famous for the architecture that lines its streets – expect an eclectic mix of art nouveau and Victorian-style buildings. These all came to be due to Glasgow’s wealth between the 18th and 20th century – mainly thanks to the shipbuilding industry.
Culture vultures will love modern day Glasgow. The Scottish Opera, the Scottish Ballet and the National Theatre of Scotland all call this city home. You’ll also find more museums and art galleries than you’d have time to tick off in a long weekend. Peckish? You’ll be pleased to hear that the city is stocked with plenty of award-winning restaurants serving everything from Scottish and British to Asian and Italian cuisine. And after dark, the city really comes alive. Hop between pubs and chat to the locals, or check out a band at one of Glasgow’s iconic live music venues.
