Scotland's Style Capital

Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow is known for its cultural heritage and the friendliness of its people. A vibrant city boasting a long-standing reputation for its live music scene, Glasgow is a former winner of the prestigious title of European City of Culture. The city prides itself on being a fun urban center, with more cutting-edge bars, pubs, and nightclubs than a passing tourist could ever hope to count. If big festivals are your thing, choose from hundreds of music events, ranging from pop to Celtic music to opera. Once considered a mighty powerhouse of industrial Britain, Glasgow has transformed itself into a major center of commerce, tourism, and sports. Visitors can enjoy a revitalized city center, some of the best shopping outside London, and numerous free places to visit, including museums, galleries, and parks.

Where to stay in Glasgow

Glasgow's revitalized city center offers outstanding accommodations--along with some of the finest shopping outside London. Considered one of the finest Victorian cities in Britain, Glasgow is renowned for its centrally located hotels. Spacious rooms overlook the historical city center, and award-winning restaurants and trendy cafes occupy the lower levels. Farther away from the central areas, which are often noisy and crowded with tourists, is a world of small B&Bs and guesthouses. These considerably cheaper options offer quality lodging in quiet neighborhoods less frequented by weekend revelers and rowdy nightlife lovers.
