Glasgow offers an exciting and varied repertoire of cultural attractions and showpieces. It was the 1990 European City of Culture, won the title of UK City of Architecture & Design in 1999 and was the European Capital of Sport in 2003.

In addition to the host of museums and galleries the city enjoys, a hugely popular attraction is the Glasgow Science Centre (GSC), nestled on the south bank of the River Clyde. The GSC brings the world of science and technology to life through hundreds of interactive exhibits and experiences.

The Tall Ship at Glasgow Harbour combines education with fun on board the Glenlee, a 19th Century Schooner. This restored cargo ship has been transformed into a leading visitor attraction depicting the ship's history and Glasgow's maritime heritage.

Explore Glasgow's ancient history and its role as an important religious centre at Glasgow Cathedral, the only medieval cathedral in mainland Scotland that survived the mid 16th Century Reformation.

Many out of town visitor attractions are worth a visit during your stay in Glasgow. The Scottish Museum of Country Life near East Kilbride explores how people lived and worked the land in the past, shaping the countryside as it is today. For action-packed family adventure, visit Strathclyde Country Park, located in the Clyde Valley between Motherwell and Hamilton.

Glasgow and its environs boast an eclectic range of visitor attractions combining fun and education, from adventurous activities to an exploration of Glasgow and Central Scotland's industrial heritage. It is no surprise that the city is firmly established as one of the UK's favourite tourist destinations.
