Glasgow and Around
Glasgow is a sprawling cosmopolitan city that was much bombed in the Second World War but has brazenly added many impressive modern buildings in between the gaps of the Victorian heart. Glasgow is considered to be the friendliest of Britain's large cities and is often described as European in character; for the diversity of its architecture, the accessibility of its art, and for the optimism and openness of its people. There is much to find in Glasgow as befits an ex-European City of Culture. There are more than 70 parks, from Glasgow Green in the East End to Kelvingrove Park in the West End.
