Searching for a bustling city with great culture, quality shopping, and friendly citizens? Scotland's capital of Glasgow is awaiting you with open arms. This lively metropolis is at once sophisticated and down-to-earth; both historical and modern. Book a stay at one of the hotels in Glasgow and prepare to experience one of the U.K.'s best cities.
Once you've taken advantage of Glasgow vacation packages, get ready to explore the city. Check out the gorgeous Victorian and Edwardian architecture throughout the city center in buildings like the Glasgow Cathedral and the City Chambers. Glasgow has enough museums to keep even the most ardent culture hound occupied. Head to the Burrell Collection in the south of the city, where you'll find more than 9,000 artworks donated by the wealthy shipping merchant William Burrell, with everything from Degas and Cézanne paintings to Chinese porcelain. Finish your day with a stroll through the Glasgow Green, where – depending on the day – you'll find all sorts of concerts and events before returning to one of the Glasgow hotels.
Glasgow's cuisine is an intriguing mixture of native Scottish elements (including the infamous haggis), British classics like fish and chips, and international influences from Europe and beyond. In particular, the city has been named the "curry capital of Britain," with many Glaswegians joking that Indian curry is now practically their national dish. To judge for yourself, check out the Charing Cross area or the Merchant City, where the best Indian restaurants tend to cluster.
