Scotland’s biggest city is good looking and up for a good time. On Glasgow city breaks, expect to combine culture and shopping-filled days with wild nights watching live music and chatting to friendly locals in the pub.
Less than an hour by train from the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, the city’s architecture alone is a good reason to plan a Glasgow city break. Grand Victorian, Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings share the skyline with striking modern buildings such as Zaha Hadid’s Riverside Museum on the River Clyde and the Clyde Auditorium, known as the ‘Armadillo’ due to its shape.
Then there are the buildings designed by famous Glaswegian architect, artist and designer, Charles Renee Mackintosh. For a special afternoon tea, head to the Mackintosh-designed Willow Tea Rooms, which were first opened in 1903. To inspire your own home interiors, look around Mackintosh House, a reconstruction of the architect’s home.
There are plenty of areas to get a shopping fix in Glasgow too, whether you’re looking for designer togs, homewares or vintage one-offs. The city’s Style Mile is the largest concentration of shops outside of London, with pedestrianised Buchanan Street being a great place to start for the latest fashion essentials. The West End caters to those who are after a range of independent, bohemian shops.
In the evening – or even for a cheeky lunchtime tipple – Glasgow’s pubs, bars, clubs and live music venues are friendly and buzzing places to enjoy Scottish hospitality. Tap your toes or dance along to a ceilidh band, enjoy a quiet pint of real ale or boogie until the wee hours in a pulsing club – the choice is yours in the city that knows how to party.
