Visit Glasgow

The friendliness of the people of Glasgow is legendary. Officially named the “World’s Friendliest City” by the Rough Guides community guidebook, visitors can expect a warm welcome. Take the time to discover Glasgow with your family before or after the WFH 2018 World Congress.

Visit world-class attractions for free

Featuring one of Europe’s largest civic art collections, Glasgow has a fantastic mix of world-class museums, galleries, and award-winning visitor attractions; including the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the Riverside Museum. From a cutting-edge arts scene that is envied across the globe, to family friendly attractions, there really is something for everyone. And as an added bonus, many attractions are free to visit. 

Immerse in an impressive gastronomic scene

Finnieston—recently named as the “Hippest place to live in the U.K.”—is considered the city’s “foodie quarter” with a brilliant mix of cool, high-quality, and affordable venues. Sourcing some of the best local produce in the world, Glasgow is also the U.K,’s most Vegan Friendly city. And when it comes to bars, it’s no longer just about the whisky. Glasgow is firmly part of the craft beer and gin revolution with a number of independent breweries and dedicated gin bars popping up across the city.

Discover diverse neighborhoods

Explore the unique and distinct neighborhoods of Glasgow—each with their own personality, vibe, and hidden gems. You might want to take a bike ride round Pollok Park in the Southside in the morning, followed by some lunch and shopping in the City Centre, a late afternoon brewery tour in the East End, and then dinner in the evening in the West End!

Explore a sustainable conference destination

Glasgow aspires to become one of Europe’s most sustainable cities by 2020, with a focus on improving quality of life in the city, protecting the environment and developing a green economy with sustainability at the top of the agenda. In August 2016, Glasgow became the first city in the U.K. to be included in a new sustainability ranking of leading international conference destinations, landing at 7th place. The ranking is an exclusive club of world-class cities such as Houston, Sydney, Kyoto, Barcelona, Geneva, Helsinki, Stockholm, and Frankfurt.
