Your host city
There’s a reason Time Out Magazine named Glasgow one of their ‘top ten best destinations in the world’ for 2019, as well as first for friendliness.
Welcome to a city where old meets new, heritage meets innovation, rain meets shine and friendliness meets honesty, with a refreshingly down-to-earth personality that is devoted to good times.
Whilst you’re here, browse through fascinating museums and art galleries, like the world-renowned Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the iconic Riverside Museum. Stroll through beautiful green parks, tantalise the taste buds in a dazzling array of restaurants or pop in to one of the many traditional pubs with live music sessions.
Indulge in all manner of retail therapy - from the biggest high street brands to vintage wares, one-off speciality stores and exclusive designer gear, you’ll find it all in Glasgow.
Sitting on the doorstep of some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery and with great transport links to the rest of the country, it’s also never been easier to combine the excitement of a Glasgow city break with a day trip to some of Scotland’s most scenic spots.
