State of the art
Through the mighty Victorian set pieces and post-industrial-style structures, Glasgow is a city of fascinating old buildings. Its artistic and historic roots date way back, and you can discover the designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh all round. Don’t miss the Gallery of Modern Art or the Riverside Museum, too.
Fantastic for foodies
Locals widely tip Finnieston – a hotspot between the city centre and western end – as the place to be for fine food and drink. This quarter showcases exquisite Scottish produce, and some restaurants are Michelin recommended. Steakhouses, Italian trattorias, bars serving charcuterie boards, and more are also in town.
Ace for all ages
All around the River Clyde, there’s bags going for families. First up, it might be an idea to hop on a bus tour. You’ll get the best views of the major attractions this way. You’ll see the epic Glasgow Science Centre, various murals dotted around, plus maybe even some musical events.
