Images Of Glasgow

Entertaining and welcoming, Glasgow is a great choice for a weekend break or a longer visit. Situated on the River Clyde, it is the biggest city in Scotland and the third biggest in the UK. As well as a lively social scene and fascinating, free museums, the city also boasts some of the best shopping outside of London. To top it off, it's an easy city to get around and the Glaswegian people are very hospitable.

    Nice city

    Glasgow was a nice city to stay at. There are nice places to see, and the city in itself is lovely. If you want to visit other places around, like the Loch Lomond or some nice citites in Ayrshire, there are plenty of buses making Glasgow the ideal headquarters for your trip !

    not a city full of attractions and fun

    this is a city for living rather than for attractions. The museums here are not very exciting. This city does not have a long history, unlike Edinburgh.

    The Very Artsy City

    Unless you are way into the Arts or are a fan of architecture then this city is very much a stop over. If you like the Arts then there is a lot to do and see. The city has a modern feel and lacks a variety of different tourist attractions. The one place to go is the Necropolis. This is a stunning cemetery and well worth the visit. I would recommend a day to just walk around the city and through the parks.

    Insider Tip:There are many museums but they close early so start in the morning.

    Quick Peek at Glasgow!

    We only spent one night in Glasgow, but that one night made me want to come back! The people were EXTREMELY friendly! We two cab drivers and both of them were just lovely. We also spoke with some locals over breakfast because they like our American accents! We definitely want to spend some more time in the cosmopolitan yet very welcoming city.

    Insider Tip:Take cabs! The drivers put American cab drivers to shame.

    Glasgow was very nice and the people were very helpful. Visiting Glasgow Science Center is a must see and you need a minimum of 6 hours to see as much as possible and to play with all those cool "toys".
