Glasgow city breaks
The buzzing cosmopolitan city of Glasgow is endowed with rich Victorian architecture, some of the best shopping in the UK and exciting nightlife to cater for all. The vast history of Glasgow is present throughout the city and you don’t have to visit a museum to become well acquainted with its interesting past. Galleries home to some world famous art collections lie in the heart of the city waiting to amaze you, while streets lined with boutiques provide some of the best shopping outside of London.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Glasgow’s most influential architect and designer takes credit for many of the stunning buildings and structures that give Glasgow its edge, while nature takes credit for the rest. A day in Glasgow is a day like no other with more than enough character to keep you occupied for weeks.
