GLASGOW’S GOT GLAMOUR

GLASGOW’S GOT GLAMOUR

Industrial edge in its trend-setting glory: Glasgow is a cultural dynamo for the UK.

Descending into Glasgow city, I was filled with anticipation.

Exploring new territory is always a thrill, but this time my curiosity was even greater than usual.

When asking around about the Scottish city, the responses were somewhat varied.

Some colleagues passed judgment on its ‘violent reputation,’ but many spoke of a booming trendsetter, bursting with style and culture.

 

Naturally, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

And I can certainly say I wasn’t disappointed.

Boasting an array of stylish shops, cosy coffee joints and incredible architecture – Glasgow is every bit the dynamic destination I had hoped for.

With a perfect recipe of rich history and artistic modernisation, it’s no surprise the city attracts creative types from across the continent.

Must-do’s during your stay include a visit to the Kelvin Grove Art Museum and a walk through the West End.

A walking tour, taken by passionate graduates from the Glasgow School of Art, is also a great way to spend the morning and familiarise yourself with the city.

 

If you’re really feeling like a treat, spoil yourself with a blow-dry appointment at The Rainbow Room before a night out.

When it comes to good grub, the options are endless.

Brunch&Bubbles at Hutchesons Bar & Brasserie is a brilliant place to start, as is the award-winning Gannet Restaurant.

If your budget is limited, no sweat. The streets are lined with mouth-watering coffee shops and cafes.

The overall consensus? Let’s put it this way: Glasgow’s got me wanting a round two.

Until next time, Scotland.
