The UK’s third-biggest city, Glasgow is packed with bold architecture from Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Its revitalised riverside is packed with activity like the annual Riverside Festival and lined with impressive buildings like the Zaha Hadid-designed Riverside Museum. A top-class food and drink scene sprawls across the city, while over in the Pacific Quay you’ll find the headquarters of BBC Scotland, and the striking design of the Glasgow Science Museum.
The nightlife across the city is legendary for its diversity and the energetic crowds. It’s not uncommon for visiting DJs to cite it as one of their favourite places — the phrase “up for it” often used to characterised the electric vibe of the locals. Likewise, the industrial look and feel of the city is contrasted by the warmth of its residents.
