Glasgow: Scotland with Style
We are grateful to the Glasgow City Marketing Bureau for their assistance in providing delegates with information regarding city attractions, services, as well as onward travel and tourist info.
Glasgow is one of Europe's most exciting destinations, which combines the energy and sophistication of a great international city with some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery.
Named by Lonely Planet as one of the world's top ten must-see cities (2009), Glasgow is home to more than 20 world class museums and art galleries. The city's impressive portfolio includes the iconic new Riverside Museum and the internationally renowned Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, Scotland's most visited free tourist attraction. No visit is complete without experiencing the Art Nouveau genius of Glasgow born artist, architect and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
And just beyond the city lies some of Scotland's most beautiful scenery. Ancient castles, quaint distilleries, tranquil lochs, outstanding golf courses and miles of unspoilt coastline are all just a short journey from Glasgow's city centre.
