Glasgow Holidays Overview


Glasgow is one of the largest cities in UK and a key economic and historic centre. The city has undergone a lot of regeneration and is recognized today for its rich history, architecture, culture and music.

The city centre is where most of the attractions, entertainment and shopping is located in Glasgow. West End is a bohemian area with many bars, restaurants, cafes as well as the Kelvingrove Museum. North Side had originally been an industrial area but has been regenerated. Today it is home to impressive structures like the Riverside Museum, Science Centre and Clyde Auditorium.

Glasgow holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Burrell Collection
2060 Pollokshaws Road, Pollok Country Park
What is it? Glasgow's top cultural attraction was donated by the shipping magnate Sir William Burrell in 1944. Over his lifetime he amassed more than 8,000 works of art, 3,000 of which are displayed at any one time. The collection includes hundreds of sculptures, drawings and paintings from the 15th to 20th centuries, some notable medieval European tapestries, as well as artefacts from Arabia and the Orient. The collection is housed in an ugly, purpose-built building set in the sedate surroundings of Pollok Country Park. Within walking distance is Pollok House, which contains a fine collection of Spanish paintings including works by Goya, Murillo and El Greco. The Edwardian house is the ancestral home of the Maxwell family, who donated the house and the collection to the National Trust in 1966.
