Glasgow Local Attractions

Glasgow is home to Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. At the beginning of the 1990s, Glasgow celebrated its status as European 'City of Culture', and in 1999, its dazzling architecture won it the accolade of 'UK City of Architecture and Design'. Since then, the city has gone from strength to strength, building a reputation as a destination where a great experience is guaranteed if the visitor seeks culture, entertainment, good food and drink, an all day shopping experience or a taste of all of these.
