Friendly locals and a wonderful atmosphere

Glasgow’s main attraction is probably its wonderful atmosphere. The city regularly tops lists of the friendliest cities in the world and with that lovely, unique and sometimes hard-to-follow accent, a chat with a local comes highly recommended.

But a more tangible attraction in Glasgow is its architecture, which ranges from medieval to modern. The city is home to stunning neo-Gothic and Victorian buildings, such as the University of Glasgow and the Glasgow City Chambers, both of which are iconic landmarks. Glasgow also boasts a variety of world-renowned contemporary buildings, such as the Glasgow Science Centre and the Riverside Museum.

Foodies will delight in the gastronomic scene, which is as diverse as it is delicious. The quintessential Scottish cuisine, which includes haggis, neeps, and tatties, is a must try, but Glasgow also boasts a wide range of international cuisine, excellent street food to glamorous Michelin-starred restaurants.

Museums, music and world-class shopping

Glasgow is also renowned for its vibrant cultural scene, with numerous world-class museums, art galleries, and music venues. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is a prime example of Glasgow's cultural heritage and is home to a vast collection of notable art.

And then there’s the shopping. Glasgow is a true paradise for shoppers, with an abundance of high street stores, independent boutiques, and designer outlets. The city's main shopping district, the area around Buchanan Street, is home to some of the best shopping in the UK and is a popular destination for all fashion lovers.

Those who travel to Glasgow should consider the city’s prime location as a base for exploring Scotland’s stunning landscapes. Beautiful locations such as Glencoe and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are within easy reach of the city and wandering out of the urban setting comes highly recommended. Whether you're a history buff, an outdoor enthusiast, a culture vulture, a shopaholic, or a foodie, Glasgow is a fascinating destination for your next vacation.
