Rough Guides: One of the top 10 cities to visit:
In the past few decades, Scotland’s biggest city has shrugged off its post-industrial malaise to emerge as a cultural powerhouse. The River Clyde, which once ferried tobacco traders towards the city, now flows past smoking-hot artists’ studios and museums, which have appeared in rejuvenated docks. Highlights include the Riverfront Museum, named European Museum of the Year in 2013, and the spanking-new SSE Hydro – one of more than a dozen venues hosting the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The Guardian newspaper: Where to go in 2014 – UK travel hot list:
If your image of Glasgow is filled with anachronisms of rusting shipyards and deep-fried confectionery, 2014 would be a good time to rediscover Scotland’s largest city as it welcomes the world during what is, perhaps, the biggest year in its history.
That Glasgow is emerging as one of Europe’s fastest-growing city-break destinations is impressive considering it did not even have a tourist office until the 1980s. In 1990 Glasgow its European City of Culture title kickstarted the regeneration process. In 1999, it utilised the UK City of Architecture and Design award to similar effect. Glasgow is indeed a city transformed, with the focus around the reborn riverside.
Finnieston, between the city centre and the West End, has seen the most palpable metamorphosis, with Lord Foster’s Armadillo and Zaha Hadid’s brilliant Riverside Museum (European Museum of the Year in 2013) joined late in 2013 by the sleek SSE Hydro concert and sports venue. The Hydro will be one of the stars of Glasgow’s biggest-ever event, this summer’s 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The city’s vibrant cultural scene will be further boosted by Homecoming Scotland 2014, which will sees dozens of cultural, historic and gastronomic events taking place. Then there are the MTV Music Awards being held in this Unesco City of Music for the first time, partly in recognition of the successful recent staging of a trio of MOBO Awards.
