Charles Rennie Mackintosh is regarded as one of the most important figures in British art with his work being spread across Glasgow.
6. We have a amazing architectural heritage
Glasgow’s architecture is instantly recognisable with magnificent buildings spread across the city. Anyone who visits Glasgow is always encouraged to “look up”.
7. Kelvingrove is the best art gallery and museum in Scotland
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of Scotland’s most popular visitor attractions with the museum recently being recognised with an Award of Excellence based on feedback from tourists from North America.
8. We have the best nightlife
A recent report by Resonance stated: “Being a university town, Glasgow performs well in our Nightlife subcategory (#42) and the city roars to prominence at gritty venues like the Sub Club, where live shows dominate. Glasgow was designated the U.K.’s first UNESCO City of Music in 2008, and the need to get back out there makes nights here even more epic of late.”
