School of Art
Perhaps the city’s most famous building the Glasgow School of Art is considered a masterpiece in itself. An architectural beauty spurned from the mind of Glasgow’s own Charles Rennie Mackintosh. You’ll recognise instantly the style, likened to the art deco roses and lines more commonly found on home-wares.
Known to the locals as ‘Squinty Bridge’ - presumably because of its eye like appearance. Looming over the river Clyde the bridge is like nothing you’ve seen before - a spectacle both day and night. You may even approach the city from this angle on your visit, passing right beneath the structure.
In the west end of the city you’ll find Kelvingrove Park - home to the famous Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. 85 acres of green space housing lakes, monuments and of course a bandstand. Open all year it doesn’t matter when you visit - always a joy to visit.
The Sunday Times calls it ‘the best whisky tour’ - and we sure agree Glengoyne Distillery is well worth a visit. Producing whisky since 1833, they sure know their stuff - and they take their time over it being one of the slowest whisky distilling processes there is. The end result is definitely worth a sip or two! Catch one of their amazing tours to get the full experience!
One for all of you that love the speed and thrills! Home to Glasgow’s Motorcycle Team - you’ll be a fool to miss out on a race. So grab yourself a ticket for when you come to visit!
