"the friendliest city in the world"
Glasgow is a city bursting with life, energy, passion and personality.
Scotland’s largest and most vibrant city is home to an array of remarkable museums, visitor attractions and galleries – housing one of Europe’s largest civic arts collections and a cutting edge contemporary arts scene that is envied across the globe.
From Mackintosh to Modern Art, dinosaurs to Dali, the Tall Ship to tearooms, beer to bowling, science to Scottish Football – the city’s vast array of visitor attractions have something to suit every taste.
A great thing about Glasgow is its compact size, making it extremely easy for visitors to explore the city’s diverse neighbourhoods and incredible range of built heritage and architecture, which spans Victorian and Art Nouveau to ultra-modern.
Lonely Planet describes Glasgow as ‘a shopaholic’s paradise’ and home to ‘the best and most eclectic dining city in Europe’, whilst it was the city’s vibrant arts and music scene which was singled out by National Geographic Traveller magazine when it named Glasgow as one of its 20 ‘Best of the World’ destinations for 2016.
The city has also been voted the ‘friendliest city in the world’ in a Rough Guides poll, with Glaswegians renowned globally for their warm welcome, which is reflected in the city’s award-winning People Make Glasgow brand.
