Welcome to Glasgow
Cast away your preconceptions about Glasgow - this is not the city you thought it was. Gone are much of the remnants of its industrial past and in its place a fresh and vibrant city has stepped in. Glasgow is one of the nation’s key economic centres outside of London. After years of regeneration and millions of pounds of investment, Glasgow is now one of Europe’s top destinations for shopping, culture and leisure.
Glasgow is steeped in history which reflects its significant role in the United Kingdom.
- Glasgow’s Hampden Park football stadium is the oldest international football stadium in the world
- Glasgow had the first police force in the UK, formed in 1789.
