Four Star Glasgow hotels

Glasgow is a city that has it all—a medieval heart, elegant shopping districts, and edgy rejuvenated docksides. Always proud to showcase its cultural achievements, Scotland's largest city boasts marvelous Victorian art galleries, inventive theaters, and glittering new museums. It also once built the ships that powered a global empire. But today, it is the rest of the world that comes to Glasgow—to enjoy its architectural heritage, marvel at its bold re-imagining, and to get better acquainted with the lively Glaswegian character.

Things to see in Glasgow

The best place to start a tour of Glasgow could well be the Lighthouse. Climb to the tower of this eclectic building—designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the famed Art Nouveau architect—and you'll have fantastic views over the city. That skyline is pricked by Glasgow Cathedral's steeple, founded over 1,600 years ago, and by the spire of the university, one of the oldest in Britain. Glasgow is also known for its striking Victorian museums, such as the Kelvingrove. Highlights here include a WWII Spitfire fighter and a fantastic range of Renaissance and Impressionist paintings. The River Clyde has shed its shipbuilding past, now hosting modern facilities like the Transport Museum and the enthralling Glasgow Science Centre. And no visit to Glasgow is complete without dropping into the West End. This upscale district, with a distinctly bohemian edge, has the city's finest Georgian housing, as well as its best independent cafés, galleries, and gastro-pubs.
