Visit Scotland

As the largest city in Scotland, Glasgow played a major role in the Industrial Revolution, as well as developing the largest seaport in Britain. Together with its neighbour, Edinburgh, these cities are the most popular and populated within Scotland. Despite its cold, wet climate, Glasgow has a vibrant culture and has become a popular tourist destination within Britain.

About Glasgow

Glasgow is Scotland's second city and is internationally recognised for its vibrant art and culture scene. Around 600,000 thousand people live in Glasgow, and contribute to the city's lively nightlife, which includes concerts in the famed National Opera House. When travellers visit Glasgow, they should make sure to check out the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, which is in an expansive Victorian Gothic building and which is home to masterpieces like Salvador Dali's Christ of St John of the Cross.

What is the cheapest way to get to Glasgow?

How cheap a journey to Glasgow depends on where travellers are departing from. When departing from a destination in England, it's usually much cheaper for travellers to board an inter-city coach service to Glasgow than another mode of transport. However, when traveling from elsewhere in Scotland, often trains are very affordable and may be more convenient than a coach journey, considering the faster travel time. If you're traveling to Glasgow from outside the United Kingdom, the cheapest way to reach the city is usually by plane. However, Glasgow Airport is a relatively small airport, so travellers may want to look at the larger Edinburgh Airport to see if flights from there have a better deal; travellers can then board a connecting train to Glasgow.
