Glasgow at a glance
It may not be the capital of Scotland, but it’s still bursting with opportunity. Glasgow is a mix of the old and new. Previously an old port city, it now hosts a modern and progressive arts and cultural scene and a huge abundance of quirky bars and restaurants. In fact, lots of churches were decommissioned in the seventies, so it’s pretty common to go and have a holy pint, if you’re so inclined.
The city’s slogan is ‘People make Glasgow’, and it really lives up to that, with a thriving student community and a whole host of people from all around the world making this scottish city their home. So if you want to become an honorary Glaswegian, then keep on reading…
