Coming to Glasgow from London, first time visitors will be struck by how easy it is to get around Scotland's largest city and how compact the city centre is. Situated on the River Clyde, and straddling both banks, this former shipbuilding city - once known as the second city of the British Empire - has long since shrugged off its industrial past. Today, Glasgow is better known as a centre for finance, fashion, arts and culture. One thing that hasn't changed, however, is the friendliness of Glaswegians. Forget the hard man stereotype often depicted on-screen, if you ask someone for directions or advice, most Glaswegians will be more than happy to oblige.

There's plenty to see and do during your visit. If museums are your thing, Glasgow has loads of them, including the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in the West End, the People's Palace in the East End, and, south of the river, the Burrell Collection, to name just a few. The easiest way to get around is by jumping on the metro which does a loop of the city, stopping at all the main parts of the city. The centre radiates out from historic George Square, with Merchant City a short walk away, where you'll find a great choice of bars, restaurants and shops. Also within walking distance from here is the famous Glasgow School of Art, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. As well as a thriving nightlife and club scene, live music is a feature of many pubs in the city, with bigger gigs at venues such as the SECC Hydro and Barrowland.
