Glasgow is Scotland's second largest city after its capital of Edinburgh, and is Britain's third largest in terms of population. It is located on the western-most part of Scotland's Central Belt on the banks of the River Clyde. It's a city famous for its burgeoning art and cultural scene with a visual art festival, several bands hailing from the city and many popular galleries.
Consider taking a Glasgow holiday during the summertime to enjoy the pleasant weather between July and August. Glasgow Airport is close to the city centre and both international and domestic flights serve the airport. Getting around the city is easy by foot, taxi, bike, subway and bus. The timezone in Glasgow is GMT.
The first sea-plane airline to operate in the UK is situated at Loch Lomond and provides tours from the River Clyde out to the west coast, flying visitors over the Loch and neighbouring Trossachs National Park offering stunning views of castles, mountains, glens and more. The Riverside Museum pays homage to Scotland and in particular Glasgow's influence on transport. For anyone interested in shopping, there are chances to purchase designer clothing as well as shops to scavenge for vintage pieces such as Vintage Guru and Mr. Ben's in the main shopping district.
As would be expected for an artistic city of this size Glasgow offers a range of restaurant and nightlife establishments. There are several places to enjoy the infamous British-style curry, as well as Asian eateries. Of course there are many restaurants where visitors can sample the world-renowned fish and chip shop delicacy; the deep-fried Mars Bar. The only drink to wash down a real Scottish meal with is a fine glass of whisky. Visit traditional pubs like The Ben Nevis and Park Bar and sample the selection. It's easy to find oneself spoilt for choice on Glasgow holidays.
