Airport Car Rental
More gritty and blue-collar than Edinburgh, Scotland’s other large city, Glasgow is a fascinating travel destination. Known for its distinct architecture, many cultural institutions, and fun nightlife, it has plenty to keep you entertained. These are three of its most notable attractions:
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum: This museum and art gallery in Glasgow is one of Scotland's most popular visitor attractions. The museum has 22 galleries, with a range of exhibits including Renaissance art, taxidermy, and artefacts from ancient Egypt. There’s even a wild haggis!
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.
Riverside Museum. Also known as the Glasgow Museum of Transport, this cultural center is known for its unique building designed by the famous architect Zaha Hadid. 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.
Glasgow Botanic Gardens. One of the most notable in Britain, the city’s botanical gardens are equally known for their wide collection of flora and the scenic glasshouses in which they are located. 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..

Many nice beaches are also located near the city.
- Prestwick (61 km / 38 mi). A small town best known as the location of the secondary Glasgow Airport, Prestwick nonetheless has its fair share of delights. The attractions include a number of high-quality golf courses, the Shaw Monument, and the St. Nicholas Church.
- Manchester (352 km / 219 mi). Best known as an industrial center and the home of two famous English football teams, Manchester is also a city of science, arts, and culture.
