Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and has a growing reputation for its culture, style and the friendliness of its people. The city offers a mix of museums, galleries, stunning architecture, amazing shopping and a wide range of restaurants and bars. The city enjoys a year-round buzz with an arts scene that regularly produces cutting-edge productions and attracts high-profile exhibitions that led to the city being crowned European City of Culture in 1990. Glasgow was also the United Kingdom's City of Architecture and Design in 1999 and its architecture is an attraction in itself. The city centre has countless impressive Victorian structures and then there are the unique masterpieces of one of the city's most celebrated sons, the legendary architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Beyond the city you will find many special outdoor spaces, but you can also find an extraordinary variety of parks and gardens. One of Glasgow’s best-loved parks, Kelvingrove, enjoys a fine setting on the banks of the River Kelvin and defines the centre of the city’s bohemian West End. Glasgow Green is the city’s oldest park and its history can be traced back to 1450. Queen’s Park in Glasgow offers stunning views on a clear day out to the Campsie Fells and Ben Lomond.
