Glasgow information

Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow, is located in the West Central Lowlands on the river Clyde. With a city council population approaching 600,000, and almost double that figure living in the surrounding area, Glasgow is the third most populous city in the United Kingdom.

The city’s location on the river Clyde made it a key settlement; as the centuries progressed and opportunities opened up, Following the Act of Union in the early 18th century which cemented relations with England, Glasgow developed into an incredibly wealthy city thanks to its status as a seaport town, trading goods all over the world; particularly with the Americas. Further inland development led not only to access to the mines of Lanarkshire, but to the sudden surge in shipbuilding companies — for which Glasgow remains industrially famous to this day.

The Glasgow postcode area elongates out from the city centre at its southernmost, taking in several county districts to the north and west such as Arrochar, Dumbarton and — at its furthest west — Helensburgh. Access from the city to western Scotland has been improved even further with the recent completion of the M74 motorway extension.

In 2012, around 95,000 people were drawn to the Merchant City Festival — an annual gathering showcasing the cream of the performing arts crop. Performers at this top-tier arts event are usually selected on the basis of previous appearances at other festivals throughout Glasgow such as the International Comedy Festival and the International Jazz Festival. Merchant City is, in itself, a prime location to suit all comers’ leisure and retail needs. With bars, restaurants and high-end boutiques, it has come to be known as the Cultural Quarter of Glasgow.

Glasgow has one of the largest concentrations of galleries, cinemas and theatres in the whole of Britain. The Theatre Royal is the base of Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera, while venues such as King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and the Carling Academy have hosted some of the top names in music — in fact, King Tut’s is the venue where Oasis were discovered.

Sports fans need look no further than the city’s great football clubs. Alongside the lesser-known Partick Thistle you’ll find Glasgow Celtic, first British winners of the European Cup, and Glasgow Rangers, seven-time domestic treble winners. Games between the ‘Old Firm’ as they are known are often passionate affairs and are keenly fought.

Glasgow will also host the 2014 Commonwealth Games, with Hampden Park being converted into an athletics arena as some of the world’s leading athletes go for gold.
