We're not exaggerating when we say that we think Glasgow is one of the most exciting cities you'll ever come across. Scotland's largest city is a lively, bustling place, distinctive and full of character, where you are bound to get a very warm welcome indeed.
A cultural smorgasbord
Perhaps one of the most enjoyable things to do in Glasgow is to simply look up and feast your eyes on the city's mix of striking architecture styles as you wander around. But if it's a day to be indoors, then you're in luck, because there are fascinating museums, diverse art galleries and creative spaces aplenty!
Fancy a splurge?
It's hard to resist the allure of Glasgow's many, many shops - it's one of the best shopping destinations outside of London. Enjoy perusing floors and floor of the latest trends in high street and designer retailers, or browse for second hand and one-off pieces in quirky vintage and boutique stores.
Have a night to remember
Glasgow knows how to do nightlife. It can be tough deciding where your evening will take you - sometimes, the best nights happen when you don't make any plans.
Explore the top restaurants and eateries of the city's diverse culinary scene, and then maybe unwind with a drink in the establishment of your preference - cosy pub, whisky or cocktail bar, or an ambient late-night venue? Or, see what's on and get tickets for a gig, or catch a theatre performance. Decisions, decisions!
