Glasgow

Kelvingrove MuseumGlasgow is a city that is vibrant with art, culture and history. Many of the cities buildings have been beautifully preserved or restored giving visitors an insight into Glasgow's past. In 1990 Glasgow was the 'European City of Culture' and in 1999 it was 'UK City of Architecture and Design'. Visitors are able to see performances from the Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. A wide range of music venues have something to suit all tastes.

A must to visit is the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the nearby Museum of Transport and the famous Burrell Collection. On a more historical note there is the impressive Glasgow Cathedral and the neighbouring Provand's Lordship, the oldest house in Glasgow which dates back to 1471 when it was the manse for a priest serving the cathedral.

Glasgow is also very well known for it's fabulous shopping facilities with the town centre having many covered shopping malls and car free, pedestrianised areas. A big plus point for the tourist is the more than adequate car parking facilities and the fantastic public transport system including bus, train and underground train.
