A trip to Glasgow is all about unravelling the layers—sedate Victorian buildings with art nouveau architecture, great shopping venues, an array of restaurants and sheer hedonism at its parties and bars deep within. Scotland’s style capital leaves you gaping at the people, wanting to empty every store there and looking up to (literally) the wonders of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The city’s numerous museums include the award-winning Burrell Collection, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the Riverside Museum. Shop your pockets out at Style Mile or unwind at Glasgow Green, the oldest park in the city. Go on a pub crawl and let your hair down at the pubs. The city offers a pumping nightlife with the best of music scenes. From live music scenes to a year-round art scene, the city has everything for everyone. With a history dating back to the Stone Age and now revelling in ultra modernism, Glasgow upholds times with utter panache.

Pub Crawl

Embarking and actually completing the pub crawl in Glasgow via its underground subway system, which is the third oldest after London and Budapest, can give rise to a plethora of words for getting drunk, such as blootered, reekin, pished, gassed and steamin. The tradition is that you need to visit all the 15 pubs attached to each metro station and down a pint of beer, which is usually used as a ceremony for graduating students coming of age. Indulge in this old-fashioned pub crawl and leave your mark at the pubs such as the Scotia, the Old College Bar and Sloan's.
