Glasgow is Scotland’s biggest city, and it’s home to a perfect blend of grand Victorian architecture and glossy office buildings, showing both its historic roots and financial ambition. Glasgow has one of the best live-music scenes in Britain, and the locals are renowned for their jolly banter with friends and strangers alike. This town is obsessed with football, with the city divided by its two big clubs: Celtic and Rangers. Known as one of the greatest rivalries in the world, a meeting between these two clubs is often a high-strung affair, but not to be missed if you happen to be in town.
Make your way to Glasgow Green, the iconic park on the north bank of the River Clyde, to see the Nelson Monument and St. Andrew’s Suspension Bridge. Then head over to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum for an astounding look at Scotland’s best art collection in a world-class museum with one of the most beautiful interiors you’ll ever see.
