What to do in Glasgow : Tips, places, hotels and restaurants


GlasgowThe most populated city in Scotland, although it is not in the capital, Glasgow has 600 000 inhabitants (over two million for its agglomeration), making it the third largest city in the UK. Situated in the west of the country, it is built on the banks of the Clyde. Its climate is oceanic, and benefits from mild winters, but fairly cool summers. It is served by two international airports. Since the late 80s, the city experienced an economic boom, which has direct consequences for its tourism activity, as is now among the top 10 most visited cities in the world. She was also named UNESCO city of music in 2008. What to see in Glasgow? Several museums worth visiting: Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, most famous for his paintings but also for its stuffed mammals and ethnographic objects; Museum of Transport, demonstrating machines of the past as horse-drawn vehicles and bicycles; St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, exposing various cult objects of different world religions. You can also discover the beautiful monuments such as Glasgow Cathedral, whose first version dates from the 6th century. The city also has numerous parks and gardens (over 90), the Kelvingrove Park where stands the museum of the same name already mentioned and the Necropolis graveyard particularly outstanding and very popular with tourists. But it does not mean that you have to abandon the outputs: bars where to taste the local whiskey, restaurants of all types, markets, shopping, city life is very lively, and the metro will take you all around the city using a Discovery Package, which offers unlimited rides on a full day. Enough to satisfy your curiosity cheaply!
