On the banks of the River Clyde stands Glasgow, a thriving metropolis - once dubbed the “Second City of the Empire.” The city’s mesmerising skyline artfully combines medieval architectural gems such as the Glasgow Cathedral and  Provand's Lordship with contemporary installations such as the Riverside Museum. True to its Gaelic translation, “the dear green places”, Glasgow hosts the tranquil oases of Botanic Gardens and Pollok Country Park amidst the urban sprawl.

Culture aficionados are spoilt for choice, with over 20 world-class museums and galleries, including the Gallery of Modern Art and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The music scene is equally scintillating, with venues such as the Royal Concert Hall. For those keen on shopping, bustling retail streets like Sauchiehall await.

Be it the Glasgow Cathedral, Necropolis or George Square, the most convenient way to see all of Glasgow is to drive from one spot to another. To get around and experience the city in all its glory, hire a car in Glasgow with Dollar Car Rental.
