More gritty and blue-collar than Edinburgh, Scotland’s other large city, Glasgow can nonetheless also be a fascinating travel destination. Known for its distinct architecture, many cultural institutions, and fun nightlife, it has plenty to keep you excited. These are three of its most notable attractions:
- Glasgow Cathedral. One of the symbols of the city, Glasgow Cathedral dates back to the 12th century, although other religious sites are said to have stood in the same place even 700 years before that. A notable example of medieval Gothic architecture, the Catholic church continues to fulfill its original function but has also become a very popular tourist attraction. If you’re interested in Glasgow and Scotland’s religious history, you can also visit St. Mungo’s Museum of Religious Life and Art.

The recipient of the 2013 European Museum of the Year award, the quayside museum has an interesting collection of ancient vehicles, steam locomotives, and classic Glasgow trolleybuses of the 1950s and 60s. Visit the City of Glasgow’s official website to learn more about admission and tickets.

There are both native species of plants and exotic examples from around the world including impressive tree ferns. The botanic gardens are right next door to Kelvingrove Park, one of the largest green spaces in Glasgow.
