Scotland’s biggest city refuses to play by the rules. And we wouldn’t want Glasgow any other way. What it lacks in the postcard-pretty volcanic outcrops of the country’s capital, it more than makes up for in its seismic personality, the warmth of its welcome, and its devotion to the important things in life: good food, good times and great people.
The city is positively fizzing with energy with more new restaurants opening here than anywhere north of Manchester, a music scene firing on all cylinders, and galleries seemingly popping up on every corner of the edgy West End.
All of which means Glasgow has a re-energised spring in its step and is more than ready to prove that, when it comes to city breaks with culture and style to spare, it’s a capital choice for a weekend break.
