Escape with us...to Glasgow

Recently voted the ‘friendliest city in the world’ in a Rough Guide poll, and named a must-visit destination by the New York Times, The Guardian and Wanderlust, Glasgow has truly earned its reputation as one of the world’s great cities.

What makes it so special? Well, Glasgow has more than 20 museums and galleries, and most offer free admission. Don’t miss the city’s principal collection at Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum. The newest addition to its portfolio, the Riverside Museum, houses a world-class transport collection. For high-tech interactive fun, head to the Glasgow Science Centre – perfect for kids of all ages.

With more than 1,500 shops, Glasgow is a shopper’s paradise. The biggest brands can be found strutting their stuff on the Style Mile – the place to be for shopping malls, department stores, high street favourites and designer boutiques. 


Of course, no visit to Glasgow is complete without experiencing the Art Nouveau genius of architect, designer and city icon, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Mackintosh’s innovative style can be seen throughout the city, including the Glasgow School of Art, widely recognised as his greatest architectural achievement. The Mackintosh Trail ticket is the perfect way to ensure you don't miss a thing.
