Glasgow

Glasgow was known as the second city of the British Empire for much of the Victorian and Edwardian period due to its tradition of transatlantic trade and engineering.
Today the merchant city continues to bustle with shops, restaurants and a thriving cultural scene.
A must-see is the work of Scotland’s best known architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, whose style adorns many unique attractions throughout the city.
