Living in Glasgow

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland situated on the River Clyde in the country’s West Central Lowlands. 

Today Glasgow is one of the liveliest cities in the UK, with an ever growing reputation and developing economy. The city is a cultural powerhouse of music, creative arts, theatre and design, and in 1990 the city became the European City of Culture. Glasgow would also go on claim the titles of City of Architecture and Design, as well as the Unesco City of Music - the very first city in the UK to win this accolade.  

For those looking to live in a city with plenty to see and do, Glasgow is the perfect location. The city is the largest retail centre in Britain outside of London, and boasts hundreds of independent boutiques, flagship stores of major British retailers, as well as designer outlets. Shopping however is not the only thing the city has going for it - Glasgow has a rich collection of art which residents and visitors of the city alike can take advantage of. Pollok Country Park was voted Europe’s best park in 2008, and is home to works by Rodin, Degas and Cezanne, whilst the country house found down by the river houses the UK’s finest collection of Spanish art. Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery and House for an Art Lover are also open for visits and are all destinations worthy of a visit. Glasgow also has an impressive nightlife and restaurant scene for those living in the city to enjoy.

The Glasgow underground also links the south and west with the city centre, whilst Glasgow’s rail network remains one of the most extensive in the UK with many stations and travel times available - making it easier than ever to get around.
