Glasgow Introduction

For Greater Glasgow, it's been quite the ride. Once facing imminent decline, Scotland's biggest city shook off its woes, preened its tail feathers and emerged on the other side as one of Europe's hippest destinations. A spruced-up centre, flanked by the revamped Clyde Waterfront and brimming with upmarket cafes, stylish boutiques and brooding whisky bars, proves the perfect bedfellow for the city's effortlessly cool neighbourhoods, thriving arts and cultural venues and pulsing live music scene.

Hotels & accommodation in Glasgow

As you might expect from Scotland's most exciting city, Glasgow comes up trumps with a melting pot of accommodation options to suit every budget. The city centre offers an enticing blend of tried-and-tested chain hotels, 5-star haunts with rooftop dining and upscale spas and one-of-a-kind boutique digs that proudly display their connections to the country's favourite architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Glasgow hotel & accmmodation specials are easy to come by, but for those on a tighter budget out-of-town B&Bs come complete with reasonable rates, a friendly welcome and a hearty Scottish breakfast. Tattie scones and haggis, anyone?

Where to stay

If being in the thick of the action is top of your travel plans, plumping for a city centre hotel puts bustling George Square and the shopping delights of the so-called Style Mile on your doorstep. Or, if you fancy yourself as a bit of a hipster, you might look at Greater Glasgow hotels in the neighbouring East End, where independent eateries, vintage flea markets and legendary nightlife offer a different flavour of the city. Looking for something more laid-back? Southside serves up a tree-lined conservation area, awe-inspiring performances from the Scottish Ballet and the Downton Abbey-like Pollock House.

Things to see

Glasgow begs to be explored and there are few better ways to kick things off than checking out the city's mural trail. Expect to see everything from larger-than-life hand shadow puppets to looming portraits of the Big Yin gracing vacant shopfronts, underground walkways and end-of-terrace spots. You'll likely work up an appetite, so a lunchtime pit stop at Òran Mór, home of A Play, A Pie and a Pint, a 45-minute original play accompanied by, shocker alert, a pie and a pint, is something of a must, not to mention an easy way to get your culture on. Crack on with your new-found sophistication by enjoying a leisurely boat ride "doon the watter" from Yorkhill Quay to historic Dumbarton Rock. You'll sail past the century-old Titan Crane, where from May through September thrill seekers plummet 150 foot from the top toward the River Clyde – on the end of a bungee rope, of course.

How to get to Greater Glasgow

Whether travelling from overseas or closer to home, those taking to the skies to get their Scottish fix find the Glasgow Airport Express a hassle-free way to reach the city centre. This 15-minute bus ride leaves the airport every 10 minutes or so, 24/7, and with free 4G and USB charging points, you'll be knocking out the selfies before you know it. You also have the option of hopping on the train to Glasgow Central or Queen Street Stations, as well as a ton of bus routes from major UK cities. Either way, it should prove one hell of a road trip.
