Greater Glasgow City Guide

Scotland’s largest city proudly stands on the River Clyde with its stern Victorian architecture and lengthy industrial history. Look behind the tough exterior of Glasgow to find the stark contrast of a burgeoning arts scene, bustling cosmopolitan life and some of the friendliest people around. Greater Glasgow hotels can be found with the Expedia search tool, ensuring that guests are in the beating heart of this riveting urban mecca.

See the Works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh

The visually compelling works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh guides visitors to Glasgow around the city. Glasgow School of Art is perhaps the Scottish architect and artist’s most famous building. It still attracts hoards of tourists and visitors alike, despite recovering from the devastating fire of 2014 - a sure sign of a beloved and outstanding piece of architecture.

Mackintosh House in Hillhead is another must-see pinpoint on the map, bringing back to life the first home of Mackintosh and his wife; complete with signature long-backed chairs and Celtic inspired decor. The Willow Tea Room on Sauciehall Street still stands and serves today as it did when completely created by Mackintosh in 1903. He even designed the waitresses uniforms!

Relax in the Urban Parks

Within the urban metropolis there are tranquil green spaces to escape the roar of city life. Glasgow Green sits in the East End on the River Clyde’s northern bank covering 136 acres. It is the oldest park in the city and boasts stately features such as the Doulton Fountain and the People’s Palace. National events often take place here and it was the gathering ground for the Commonwealth Games 2014.

The Botanic Gardens provide serenity from the hubbub of Great Western Road, which then follows the River Kelvin to Kibble Palace. Here stands one of Britain’s largest greenhouses and a fascinating herb garden with medicinal varieties. Take a picnic, hire a bicycle, catch an outdoor concert or simply sit down with a book and enjoy.

Discover the Culture and Art of Glasgow

Glasgow is a winning city when it comes to arts and culture: City of Culture and City of Architecture and Design most notably. It is also home to six Turner prize winners (plus another 12 nominees!). Tron Theatre in Merchant City focuses on new writing and exciting reworks, the Scottish Ballet supplies world-class performances and The Royal Conservatoire is a national centre specialising in musical theatre, diverse dance, drama and opera.

Kelingrove Art Gallery and Museum is a hub of intriguing artifacts from stuffed animals to French Impressionist paintings, catering for both weird and wonderful interests. The Riverside Museum is another popular arts spot, voted European Museum of the Year in 2013. Booking a hotel in the Greater Glasgow area will help make the most of these award-winning offerings.

Indulge in Some Shopping and Music

From favourite High Street department stores on ‘Style Mile’ (Argyle Street - Sauchiehall Street) to designer boutiques of Merchant City to vintage hotspots in the West End, Glasgow has got the goods for shoppers.

After a hard day’s shopping it is time to take advantage of this UNESCO City of Music. Renowned clubbing haunts include Sub Club, The Arches and The Buff Club but a variety of live music ranging from classical to hip hop is ubiquitous.

So what are you waiting for? Discover Scotland's trendiest city, by booking a trip to Glasgow.
