Lifestyle in Glasgow
Glasgow is a vibrant city that's renowned for its friendly locals, world-class art galleries and remarkable architecture. From the medieval Provand's Lordship to the 1930s-era Pollok House, you’ll find plenty of historic attractions to explore. In addition, you can also discover a wide range of museums and galleries to enjoy, such as the Gallery of Modern Art or the Riverside Museum, which was the winner of the European Museum of the Year award in 2013.
If you love history, then Glasgow has plenty to explore. Known as ‘The Victorian City of the Dead’, Glasgow Necropolis is one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. Originally modelled on Père-Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, it attracts history enthusiasts from far and wide. The Necropolis offers some truly spectacular Victorian architecture, in addition to gorgeous views over Glasgow.
Whether you're looking for your favourite brands or quirky boutique stores, you'll find an array of shops and restaurants around the city. The Merchant City district boasts a variety of designer stores and stylish cafés, and there are a number of large shopping centres dotted throughout Glasgow’s suburbs including Silverburn, intu Braehead, Glasgow Fort and The Forge.
Glasgow also hosts plenty of exciting events and festivals throughout the year, such as the Glasgow Film Festival, the cultural West End Festival and the Merchant City Festival, which pays tribute to Glasgow’s rapidly-expanding culture, food and drink scene. Alternatively, you can catch a concert at the SSE Hydro, which has recently hosted acts such as Rod Stewart and U2.
You can take a stroll along the Clyde River, which runs all the way through the city, or take a tour of one of the many famous parks and gardens dotted around Glasgow. With over 90 country parks and gardens to admire across the region, it's no coincidence that the name ‘Glasgow’ means ‘dear green place’!
Glasgow Botanic Gardens is a particular highlight. Here you can relax in the public park, follow the heritage trail, or admire one of the many glass houses. This includes the Kibble Palace, a 19th century glass house that covers more than 2,000 square metres.
