Welcome to Scotland’s city of cool. Once written off as too gritty, edgy and urban, Glasgow has grown up, blending style and sophistication with lively authenticity.

The city centre, with its gleaming ‘Style Mile’ has the architectural wow factor, while hipster foodies will heart Finnieston and the regenerated East End. It’s totally walkable, but more fun to try out the third oldest underground in the world.

If you’re on a Rennie Mackintosh pilgrimage, you might spot the old site of Hengler’s Circus that once stood next to the Glasgow School of Art, complete with a large circus ring and water tank.
