Scotland’s biggest city is also one of the UK’s most intriguing metropolises – but Glaswegians are nothing if not a down-to-earth bunch. Expect a warm weegie welcome as you discover stately Victorian mansions, industrial throwbacks and space-age buildings dotted along the River Clyde. Among them you’ll find everything that promises to make a trip that’s pure barry: good grub, modern art, great music and an even better nightlife.
For culture – Centre for Contemporary Arts. With six major exhibitions each year, the CCA is a constant source of artistic inspiration in the city. From poetry performances to film screenings and music recitals, there's something for everyone. While you're there, don't miss the emerging artists on show at Intermedia Gallery, and grab a bite at the Saramago Café Bar.
For brilliant brews – Shilling Brewing Co. From Unicorn IPA to Glasgow Red Ale, the small-batch beers here are a must-try. A tasting flight won’t break the bank, and don't forget to order a few housemade pizzas to soak up those artisanal ales – try Haggis and Irn-Bru Chilli Jam. Trust us.
