Things to do in Glasgow

Glasgow's rich heritage is displayed at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum in the West End. Design fans linger over the work of Glaswegian architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh throughout the city on the Mackintosh Trail. The past comes back to life in the Tenement House in the city centre, and nature takes over in the West End's Botanic Gardens. Experience Glasgow's ship-building past with a trip from the South Side on The Waverley paddle steamer.
