Tourist Information

Glasgow was the UK's first UNESCO City of Music and is a hotspot for live performances in famed venues like The Barrowlands and King Tut's Wah Wah Hut. In recent years, many of Glasgow's lanes and buildings have undergone colourful makeovers by talented street artists. You can explore these amazing works of urban art at your own pace or on a guided tour. Glasgow is also a shoppers’ paradise. The city centre is where you'll find big high street brands and designer stores in Princes Square, St Enoch Centre and Buchanan Galleries.


If you are foodie or simply fancy a break Glasgow has a diverse and constantly expanding food and drink scene. Enjoy classic Scottish dishes from haggis, neeps and tatties at The Ubiquitous Chip to the finest Scottish seafood at Gamba. From street food at Platform to Michelin star dining at Cail Bruich, Glasgow has some of the most exciting chefs and independent restaurants with a focus on the finest locally sourced and sustainable produce.
