          About Glasgow

          Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and is located in the west of the country, approximately 80km from the capital, Edinburgh. Though stunning architectural features such as the city's cathedral date back to medieval times, ship-building and global trade in the 19th century saw the city defined by the Industrial Age. It was in 1990, when Glasgow was made a European City of Culture, that its reputation for the arts began to shine. Visitors can enjoy both national and international collections at the Kelvingrove Museum and stroll around the stately parkland surrounding it. The city's connections to renowned artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh are evident wherever you walk, from themed tea rooms to the Glasgow School of Art, which he designed himself. Today, Glasgow is a modern metropolis with lots of personality. A healthy live-music scene and ever-growing numbers of trendy shops, bars and restaurants make it a top choice for weekend trips throughout the year.

          Staying in Glasgow

          Whether it's a short winter break or a longer stay during the warmer months, Glasgow has an abundance of centrally located hotels, from budget chains to smart boutiques and five-star luxury. With listed buildings in plentiful supply, you'll find many converted B&Bs and historic guesthouses in the West End and Dennistoun areas. Holiday makers can stay in the city for all the action or perhaps look to the the surrounding Lanarkshire countryside which is home to some beautiful lodgings for those last-minute getaways in the off-peak season.

          Getting around Glasgow

          With the two airports just outside the city serviced by frequent shuttle buses, Glasgow is well placed for domestic and international travellers. Situated on the M8 motorway, the city is connected to places all over Scotland, such as Edinburgh and St. Andrews and Aberdeen and the Western Highlands are within an hour's drive. Glasgow Queen Street railway station is convenient for most parts of the city and from here you can transfer to a local bus or taxi.
