Things to see in Glasgow

Glasgow has been used as a set for many movies, so a good introduction to the city is taking a walking tour trying to spot as many locations as you can find. Its streets have been used for Hollywood blockbusters such as World War Z, Under the Skin, and Cloud Atlas, so eagle-eyed travelers will have plenty to look out for! Glasgow Cathedral is very popular with visitors. Located right in the center of Cathedral Square, this Church of Scotland place of worship shows off some impressive architecture. If you time your visit right, you might be able to see the cathedral’s choir perform as part of a service. Pollock House is a stately home close to the city center—its landscaped grounds lend themselves to long strolls and holiday snaps. The gardens behind the house feature a famous beech tree, thought to be around 250 years old.

The M8 motorway creates a physical divide between this area and the city center, but a short bus ride can ferry you between the two districts.
