Glasgow is one of the liveliest and most cosmopolitan destinations in Europe. The city has been reborn as a centre of style and vitality set against a backdrop of outstanding Victorian architecture. Glasgow boasts world famous art collections, the best shopping in the United Kingdom outside London, and the most vibrant nightlife in Scotland. A must see is the Art Nouveau splendour of Scotland’s best known architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, whose inimitable style adorns attractions such as The Lighthouse, Glasgow School of Art, and House for an Art Lover.
Art and culture are important in Glasgow life where galleries and museums are in abundance – most with free admission. A choice of over 20 includes the world’s first Museum of Religion and the renowned Burrell Collection in Pollok Park. No visit would be complete without experiencing the city’s shopping with high street stores, designer labels, and speciality outlets to explore, with welcome pit-stops in the first class caf culture around the Italian Centre, Merchant Square or Gallery of Modern Art.
