Glasgow is considered by travel magazines to be one of the world's top tourist cities for good reason. Glasgow was known as the "Second City of the British Empire" for much of the Victorian era, and it still boasts an impressive number of breathtaking Victorian buildings: the Glasgow City Chambers; the main building of the University of Glasgow, designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott; and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, designed by Sir John W. Simpson are just a few of the outstanding examples that you could visit when you book one of Direct Flights's Glasgow travel packages.
The city is also notable for its buildings that were designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, an Arts and Crafts architect and advocate of the Art Nouveau movement in the United Kingdom. His buildings in Glasgow include the Glasgow School of Art, the Willow Tearooms and the Scotland Street School. The Queen's Cross Church, also designed by Mackintosh, is one of the hidden gems of Glasgow architecture.
If you fancy a change from classic architecture, go to Glasgow's West End. This section of the city is the "bohemian district" and is full of colorful cafés, tea rooms, bars, boutiques, clubs and restaurants that are worthy of a visit. The area's main thoroughfare is Byres Road and one of its most popular destinations is Ashton Lane. And by all means visit Glasgow's thriving city centre, which is home to most of Glasgow's shopping centres - famous for offering the best shopping in the UK outside London. The city centre also features Glasgow's main cultural venues, including the Theatre Royal, The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and a treasure trove of museums and art galleries.
