Glasgow has appeared in some of the world's top travel guides as a must visit destination and more and more people are discovering why. It might not jump out at you as a good city break destination but once you discover what Glasgow has to offer you will find out why.

The largest city in Scotland and one with a history dating back to the stone age and Celtic Druids visits by the Romans including a Roman Fort. The first Christian church was founded in the 6th century and around 500 years later work began on Glasgow's first cathedral. An important trading centre since the 16th century, which evolved in to the major shopping centre Glasgow is today.

Today Glasgow is a major shopping destination with the best range of shops and shopping facilities in the UK after London. So if you want to shop until you drop then Glasgow has all shops you could ever need and more. Glasgow has many attractions and fantastic nightlife as well, so no matter what you are looking for you will find it here.

Another great reason to visit Glasgow is to experience on of the many festivals staged in the city throughout the year. From the International Comedy Festival to the River Festival, Glasgay, Merchant City Festival, Celtic Connections and the many others. There is always an extra reason to be in Glasgow and great entertainment is only another.

Glasgow is easy to get to and has a very busy airport with arrivals from numerous towns and cities around the UK, Europe and beyond. There are flights available with the low cost airlines offering amazingly cheap flights to and from Glasgow. Travelling by rail takes you into the centre of the city to either of the stations. The coach station is also in the city centre and like the train has regular arrivals from England and the north of Scotland. There are flights daily from all four of the airports in London and most other UK towns and cities as well.

Glasgow can experience different climates all in the one day but this will not detract from your enjoyment as there is lots to do regardless of the weather conditions. Despite what you may believe it can get very warm in Glasgow during the Summer months

Some of the best attractions include the fantastic Kelvingrove Art Gallery, probably the busiest gallery in the UK after the Tait Gallery in London. The Science Centre in Glasgow is an excellent attraction and well worth a visit, there is also the Glasgow Tower and Imax theatre all located at the Science Mall next to the River Clyde.

A short drive away from Glasgow is Loch Lomond and the beautiful Highlands can be reached are less than an hours drive from Loch Lomond. Stirling and Edinburgh can easily be reached by car for a day trip.
