Glasgow combines the best of both worlds – the culture of the city and the scenery of Scotland. With coastlines and castles on the city’s doorstep, Glasgow's offering is truly unique. No wonder Conde Nast Traveller named Glasgow one of the 'best UK city breaks' three years in a row.

Culture enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with free-to-visit museums and galleries, and an edgy contemporary art scene. Not to mention the legendary music scene. Two must-visit attractions are the Burrell Collection and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. The former having won the biggest museum prize in the world, Art Fund Museum of the Year 2023.
