Glasgow is a port city on the River Clyde in Scotland’s western Lowlands. It’s famed for its Victorian and art nouveau architecture.
Thinking of visiting Glasgow? then hopefully my guide below will help you make your mind up and help you while you visit.
Getting To Glasgow
We also have another airport called Glasgow Prestwick Airport, it’s around 32 miles out and is mostly used for Ryanair flights. If you can, book your flight to the main Glasgow Airport.
Where To Stay
Glasgow has many hotels ranging from low-budget to higher-end hotels so it just depends on your budget.
I have stayed at a few hotels in and around Glasgow centre and these are the ones I will mention. If these don’t suit your location or budget, do a search for other hotels and check out their reviews.
I have stayed in a few Hotels outside Glasgow so if your needing any ideas do feel free to contact me.
