Glasgow - Holiday Tour Packages
Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland (and the 3rd largest in the UK) and is located at the west end of the country’s Central Belt along the River Clyde. Though the city’s historical significance as the primary industrial centre of Scotland was challenged by regeneration efforts and change, it has managed to remain a key economic center outside London and within the UK.
The city has received European titles, including the Capital of Sport, City of Architecture and Design and the City of Culture, and in 2008, it became the 2nd city of Scotland to join the UNESCO Creative Cities initiative when it was hailed the UNESCO City of Music. All these attributes just mean that Glasgow is definitely a great place for travel, sightseeing and activities.
