What’s on Glasgow and the Clyde Valley

In 2006, readers of Condé Naste Traveller magazine voted Glasgow their Favourite UK City. Glasgow has something for everyone. Let’s start with the Art Nouveau Glasgow Style for which the city has become famous - a style epitomised by Glasgow’s celebrated son, architect and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. A shopper’s paradise, Glasgow is also home to over 200 arts organisations. The city is stylish too, with funky bars, boutique hotels and a vibrant nightlife. As if this isn’t enough, Glasgow is surrounded by some of Scotland’s best scenery. There’s the rolling hills of the Clyde Valley, the beautiful walking country of East Dunbartonshire and, further afield, towns and villages such as Paisley, Hamilton, Biggar, Greenock and Gourock - not to mention the amazing World Heritage Site of New Lanark. Only a day’s excursion from Glasgow, they offer a range of attractions and activities that the whole family can enjoy.
