It is easy to forget that Scotland’s largest city was often described as Great Britain’s second city during Victorian and Edwardian times. As industry declined this obviously changed, however, in recent years Glasgow has gone from strength to strength. They have fought consistently to do away with the 'hard city' image, no more Glasgow kissing, far more shopping, reasonable pricing and friendly football matches. Travel in the city is above average and visiting the rest of the UK is easy thanks to Glasgow International Airport. Above all this is a city where you should ignore your preconceptions; it might well be a lot of fun.
