Glasgow is said to be the biggest city in Scotland and is also the third major city in the United Kingdom. It is in the country's West Central Lowland area and has flourished on River Clyde. The city has to its credit one of the biggest seaports in the entire world. The art gallery in the city, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum boasts of having the collection of Europe's great art collections, finest collections of arms and armor and the very famous artwork, 'hanging heads'. It is located just next to the Kelvingrove Park and is designed in the Spanish Baroque style in sandstone. The pride and joy of the central hall is an enormous Pipe Organ established by Lewis & Company. Spend your night in the city at one of the city’s best nightclub, The Arches which is a bar, and venue for arts and theatre and live music concerts. You can locate it in is the City Centre right under the Glasgow Central Station. The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall is again an arts venue, often used as a venue for graduation ceremonies. The place also features a gift shop, a restaurant, and five bars. An attraction here is the ‘Green Room’ which has the most stunning views of the Buchanan Street.

Overall Guide : Most of the historical structures in Glasgow reflect the Victorian style. The Glasgow School of Art is a striking building which serves as an art gallery for a range of works in different styles; the school too is still functional.... more The Burrell Collection is a private collection that was donated to the city and consists of a vast collection of artefacts, furniture, ceramic etc. collected over a period of time. The medieval Glasgow Cathedral, which is built in Gothic style and houses a great bell and a crypt, and the colourful St. Vincent Street Church, with Greek style architecture, are worth a visit. The West End district of Glasgow is the most vibrant part of the city. The University of Glasgow and the Botanic Gardens are located here; it also houses antique book and vintage clothes stores. The picturesque Isle of Arran makes for a good one-day trip from Glasgow. Many natural wonders as well as beautiful castles are found here.

Overall Guide : Glasgow is the largest city of Scotland. This city of approximately 578,800 inhabitants is located within the low-lying plains in the western part of the country and is surrounded by hills. Glasgow has a very humid climate but the temperatures are... more quite mild. Summers are long and sunny making it the best time to visit with average temperatures at 18°C. Winters are not severe but the city gets a fair amount of rain at this time. Glasgow came into importance during the Middle Ages when it was established as a seat of a bishop. Soon, it became the hub of trading activities and developed commercially. Today, it is a modern city and a key financial centre of Europe. It is also a popular tourist destination with a thriving cultural scene.

Overall Guide : Glasgow is a great place to visit for both business and pleasure. There is a wide breadth and depth of accommodation to suit all budgets, same goes for your dining requirements. You can go for the cheap and cheerful or... more the top class fine dining/ boutique style experience to suit your mood. No shortage of things to do wether it be hitting the tourist sites to a drama to fine opera, again there is something to suit all moods. As for shopping Glasgow, in my opinion, can certainly give any other city a run for its money.
