Boasting fabulous Georgian and Victorian architecture, a lively restaurant scene, and some world-class museums and galleries, Glasgow is a city to savor for at least a day or three.
Downtown Glasgow is a foot-friendly grid of streets focusing on the pedestrian shopping thoroughfares of Buchanan Street and famous Sauchiehall. Walk through to the historic Merchant City district for grand Georgian architecture dating from Glasgow’s heyday as Britain’s premier port city, and check out the over-the-top grandeur of the Corinthian restaurant with its stained-glass dome. Follow Sauchiehall to the gentrified West End, with its bohemian shops and restaurants, or jump aboard a hop-on hop-off tour to combine Glasgow sightseeing with transport.
From religious history to cutting-edge trends at the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA), Glasgow’s cultural mix is perennially vibrant. The St. Mungo Museum at the cathedral explores religious customs over the centuries.
