What’s on in Glasgow – Merchant City Festival
What’s on in Glasgow? Merchant City Festival | Glasgow | 25th July – 8th August 2015
There will be nine days filled with free events in Glasgow’s cultural quarter including street arts, dance, live music, markets, fashion and design, comedy, family events, tours, heritage walks, talks, food and drink and much more.
Principal Apartments have many serviced apartments in the heart of the Merchant City and well placed for City Centre amenities and shops. As the epicentre of Glasgow’s extraordinary mercantile wealth, this area housed tobacco lords and cotton kings. Two centuries later, the Merchant City has been brought back to life as a lively cultural quarter. The streets and lanes closest to the Clyde are packed with studios, workshops and galleries . . . while thoroughfares closer to the Ingram Street artery have some of Glasgow’s best loved bars and restaurants. Ingram Street, running from Royal Exchange Square right through the heart of the Merchant City, is lined by elegant blonde sandstone buildings and innumerable architectural wonders. Ingram Street morphed into the city’s most exclusive fashion boulevard as luxury and niche brands.
Principal Apartments is proud to offer self catering serviced apartments for travelers and business guests who prefer to enjoy the luxury and extra space that comes with a managed apartment and who also appreciate the amenities that apartments offer over a hotel.
