City Centre Sights
Glasgow owes much of its impressive, historic architecture to the immense wealth generated in the area during the Industrial Revolution. The River Clyde was once a hub of maritime trade with strong connections to all corners of the globe. A world leader in shipbuilding and steel production, the Glasgow expression ‘Clydebuilt’ was synonymous with quality engineering. Such quality is reflected in the city’s grand civic structures.
In the heart of the city centre, the magnificent Clock Tower above Glasgow Central Station was completed in 1884 and its lead clad summit is still striking today. On nearby Mitchell Street you will find the former Glasgow Herald building designed by the celebrated Charles Rennie Macintosh, completed in 1895. The tower was renovated in 1999 into a visitor centre offering fantastic views of the city.
