Welcome to Glasgow, Scotland’s city of style. It’s the largest city in Scotland, set on the river Clyde and home to world-class everything. From attractions to museums and galleries, eateries, artists and more, breeze through to Glasgow from Southampton Airport and you’ll also have one of the best city centre shopping experiences in the UK at your feet. 

A UNESCO City of Music, Glasgow is famous for its celebrated buildings by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the amazing free art on show at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and of course, the magnificent Glasgow Cathedral.

Find retail therapy in the Style Mile of Sauchiehall, Buchanan and Argyle Streets, head to the West End to soak up the maritime atmosphere of the fantastic Zaha Hadid-designed Riverside Museum or venture into the wild beauty of Loch Lomond just outside the city. 

Wherever your downtime takes you, Glasgow has a wealth of fun stuff to discover. Hop on a sightseer bus and start admiring the view.
