About Glasgow

The quintessential essence of Scottish culture

A proud modern city scrubbed-up and ready to go, Glasgow isn't just a proud modern city with a famous industrial heritage. It's the gateway to some of the UK's most spectacular scenery, just an hour or so up the coast. Stay in town and shop until you drop, share its footballing fever or take to the hills. The choice is yours.

Hotels in Glasgow

Glasgow's hotel scene has recently received a revamp courtesy of some luxe new offerings. But holding its own against the new crowd, the established Hotel du Vin at One Devonshire Gardens (1 Devonshire Gardens) boasts lavish decorations and a fabulous bistro, and is a hangout for famous names and the well-heeled. It's rivalled by the contemporary Radisson Blue Hotel (301 Argyle Street), that's housed within an award-winning building. At the budget end of the market, Ibis Glasgow City Centre (220 West Regent Street) provides cheap and cheerful accommodation in the city centre, while the Willow Guesthouse (228 Renfrew Street) is a cosy, family-run B&B.

Shopping in Glasgow

Where fashion is concerned, Glasgow certainly competes with the big boys on the international style scene. Locals call the city centre the "Style Mile" for its concentrated collection of boutiques and department stores. You'll find Buchanan Galleries (220 Buchanan Street) here, with its stellar line-up of classy brands, as well as the designer-heavy Princes Square (48 Buchanan Street). The West End is a focus for vintage shops, such as Circa Vintage (37 Ruthven Lane), while both fashion and flea market bargains abound at the Sunday car boot sale in the Blochairn Market Complex (130 Blochairn Road).

Food & Drink in Glasgow

Glasgow is famous for its curry culture, and popular establishments such as The Wee Curry Shop (29 Ashton Lane) and Shish Mahal (60-68 Park Road) have achieved mythical status among Glaswegian gourmands. You'll need to venture outside of the city limits to find a Michelin-starred establishment, but Brian Maule at Chardon d'Or (176 West Regent Street) comes close to achieving the coveted accolade with its creative and well-executed range of dishes. The gastropub atmosphere at the 78 (10-14 Kelvinhaugh Street) sets the scene for a scrumptious and well-priced menu, while deli kitchen Delizique (70 Hyndland Street) is the locals' choice for home-baked cakes and brownies.
