Set on the banks of the mighty River Clyde Dropdown content, this former industrial giant can seem less than enticing as you approach. However, after a little time exploring visitors will find a city that is, in its own idiosyncratic way, a cultured and dynamic place well worth getting to know. Taken from the Rough Guides Snapshot Glasgow Dropdown content, here are six of our favourite things to do in Glasgow Dropdown content:
Necropolis: an elegantly crumbling graveyard on a city centre hill behind the ancient cathedral, with great views.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum Dropdown content: a splendid civic collection of art and artefacts in a Gothic red-sandstone palace in the city’s lively West End.
