There’s a reason Glasgow was named as one of the 'best UK city breaks' by Conde Nast Traveller and the ‘world’s friendliest city’ by Conde Nast, Time Out Magazine and Rough Guides (2021 and 2022).
Glasgow has an epic history and an architectural heritage that spans medieval to modern. Glasgow City Chambers, Glasgow Cathedral and the University of Glasgow are just a few of the city's stunning buildings, which attract Hollywood filmmakers looking for dramatic settings!
As a compact city, it is easy to take in the city centre’s elegant streets and flair for design, as well as the neighbourhoods, each of which have their own charm and character. The distinct neighbourhoods include the likes of Shawlands, which claimed ‘11th coolest neighbourhood in the world’ by Time Out Magazine (2022).
