The Largest City in Scotland
Although Glasgow is the largest City in Scotland it is not the capital city and many local residents argue it should be. It is the third largest city in Britain and is serviced by major rail and road networks and an international airport.
Glasgow is situated on the West coast of Scotland and has a population of more than 1.75 million.
Old and New Buildings Combined
The city is based on a grid system on the banks of the River Clyde. The city centre boasts stunning architectural buildings sitting amongst modern buildings both of which delight the tourists.
Try to make a visit to some of the citiy’s cultural venues including the Glasgow royal concert Hall and the Gallery of Modern art both of which are located in the centre of the city.
A City that has Thrived in Adversity
The wealth of Glasgow originated during its trading period in the 18th century when it imported vast quantities of sugar, tobacco and cotton from overseas. The main port being known as Port Glasgow.
It excelled in ship building and manufacturing and was a market leader for the use of industrial machinery and coal industries. As such it became a very important shipping centre and became one of the first cities to reach a population of 1 million.
However, during the 20th century the city started to decline and suffered a Great Depression and industries moved away from Glasgow to other more prosperous countries such as Japan and West Germany.
As a result the city received a large injection of funds to regenerate and a huge program of rebuilding led to some of the most modern and wonderfully designed residential and commercial buildings in Europe.
The bedrock of Glasgow it’s the resilience of its inhabitants who have maintained a strong family and work ethic along with a quick-witted sense of humour which is second to none.
Fine Scottish and European Food
Glasgow has a thriving district known as the West End, which is awash with cafes. Bars and restaurants and if you like good quality food then you should head for this area. You will not be disappointed.
One of the Largest Shopping Centers in Europe
Glasgow is voted one of the top places to shop in the UK apart from London and it offers more than 1500 shops with both designer and high street labels.
In addition you can find small boutique outlets offering vintage clothing and independent record labels which is a rarity in a large city centre with shopping arcades these days.
Head for Style Mile, Buchanan Street or Princes Square for the best bargains and widest variety.
