A compact city, Glasgow is easy to get around, which is handy because there’s a great deal to see, from beautifully-preserved architecture to stunning urban parkland. Football is a way of life here - Scotland’s two biggest teams, Rangers and Celtic, are based in Glasgow, and the rivalry between the Old Firm makes match days electric. On the banks of the Clyde, Glasgow was once the shipbuilder for the world. Now rapidly becoming known as Scotland’s cultural capital, this is a city rooted in the past but with a thoroughly modern outlook.
