Self-catering accommodation in Glasgow
Glasgow is undoubtedly one of the best party cities in the British Isles – it’s also a great cultural centre steeped in history. It may seem to many of us that the city is almost like Edinburgh’s untamed brother yet it’s also gained a reputation as a holiday destination for those in search of exciting new art and music scenes. After all, Glasgow is a famed former European Capital of Culture and there’s a good reason for it. So, whether you’re in town to soak up the atmosphere, absorb the city’s considerable history, investigate the best food and drink hot spots or amble around the city’s grand parks, Glasgow has something to appeal to everyone. The River Clyde runs through the city and a stroll along the waterfront is a must when visiting Glasgow. The river runs into the Firth of Clyde and out to the sea. You can also be in the beautiful countryside within minutes, so take a train journey or a ferry out to the west of the city or up to Loch Lomond. The most famous city parks are Kelvingrove Park and the Botanic Gardens with its impressive temperate glasshouses.
The city is also a major magnet for those in search of a shopping experience. Head out to the neighbourhoods for independent shops and stick to the city centre for High Street leaders because Glasgow is arguably the best place above the border for a spree. It’s not too much to compare it to Edinburgh either, as its rival is about an hour’s drive to the east.
