    Glasgow is a beautiful city, famous for its trading and shipping history, and now the home to the Scottish Ballet, Scottish Opera and the National Theatre of Scotland. Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow is situated on the River Clyde in the West of Scotland and is famous for its stunning architecture - Victorian and art nouveau, thriving contemporary art scene, and successful financial sector.

    Central Glasgow is an architectural mix of grand Victorian buildings and modern towers; both quaintly historic and very contemporary. The first stop on your private walking tour is Glasgow Cathedral. It is the city’s oldest building and was founded by Glasgow’s patron saint, St Mungo. St Mungo’s Museum, a peaceful gallery of religious artefacts housed in a Scottish baronial-style building, celebrates his holy life.

    The Necropolis - a charming 27-acre Victorian garden cemetery adjacent to Glasgow Cathedral - tells the stories of those in this final resting place. Historic Wellpark brewery holds a special place in the hearts and minds of Glaswegians as the home of Tennent's Brewery, with its 450-year brewing tradition, it is the birthplace of Scotland’s favourite beer.

    George Square, another much-loved and iconic landmark, is at the very heart of the city and draws picnicking families in summer and festive celebrations over winter. It is crowned by the City Chambers, a grandiose edifice that symbolises the city’s historic wealth, and you’ll see it has its very own Statue of Liberty.

    Your final stop is Merchant City, once 18th-century cotton, tobacco and sugar trading hub, and now a swish shopping area with bijou cafes and sophisticated eateries.
