Location and Venue
Glasgow is one of Europe’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities. Home to 40,000 dining places, you won’t be short of somewhere to eat and Glasgow is now the envy of many European cities for its amazing and eclectic restaurant and café scene.
Glasgow’s compact city centre and grid system is easily walkable, and the highly developed public transport network of train, bus and underground systems provide economic and efficient options for visitors to get around. An excellent variety of shops line the ‘Style Mile’, which refers to the square mile of shops in Glasgow city centre.
Glasgow, affectionately known as the ‘dear green place’, has over 70 parks and gardens and with world renowned museums, galleries and architectural treasures you are never short of something to visit.
Just 35 minutes from the city centre, you will find yourself in the heart of some of Scotland’s most breath-taking scenery where you can explore ancient castles, quaint distilleries and miles of unspoilt coastline.
