Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and the third largest in the UK having a population of over 2 million people. The River Clyde runs through the city and across the country’s West Central Lowlands. The Scottish city grew from a small rural settlement to become the largest seaport in Britain.

The current location of Glasgow has been settled since the prehistoric times becoming the furthest downstream fording point on the River Clyde. The settlement was part of the Kingdom of Strathclyde after the Romans left Caledonia. The capital of the Kingdom of Strathclyde was Dumbarton which merged in the 9th century with other regions to create the United Kingdom of Scotland. The importance of Glasgow was increased throughout the 10th and 11th centuries as the location was reorganised by King David I of Scotland and John, Bishop of Glasgow. The Scottish town expanded throughout the centuries to become one of the biggest cities in the United Kingdom.

Glasgow is hugely focused on education having four Universities within 10 miles of the city centre: The University of Glasgow, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Caledonian University and the University of the West of Scotland. The University of Glasgow is the one of the oldest English speaking Universities in the world and was founded in 1451. The University was part of the Scottish Enlightenment during the 18th Century. Glasgow University was also part of the international network of research universities group. The Scottish University focuses on core subjects such as law, medicine, civil service, teaching, science and engineering. The main campus for the University of Glasgow has been located in the city’s high street in the west end of the city. Another University in Glasgow that focuses on research is the University of Strathclyde. The university was founded in 1796 by the Andersonian Institute and received its Royal Charter in 1964 as the UK’s first technological University. It is the third largest University in Scotland by population and was awarded the University of the Year in 2012 and 2013 by the Times Higher Education.

There are many places to visit throughout the Scottish city such as exploring the Glasgow city chambers. The Glasgow city chambers are the focal point of George Square and one of the city’s most iconic buildings. The Chambers tells the story of the wealth and industrial prosperity of the Second City of the empire. More than 1.5 Million tiles have been laid by hand within the vaulted ceilings and domes in the Chambers and has the largest marble staircase in Western Europe. There is more marble in the City Chambers than the whole of the Vatican. Glasgow’s Cathedral is also a stunning building to visit with some beautiful Scottish Gothic architecture presented throughout the building. There is a crypt within the famous Cathedral which was constructed in the 1200’s to house the tomb of St Kentigern.

Glasgow is well known for its sport. The first international football match was hosted in Glasgow in 1872 where Scotland drew with England 0-0. Glasgow is also one of four cities to have had two football teams in European finals in the same season, with Celtic FC competing in the European Cup Final and rivals Rangers FC competing in the Cup Winners’ Cup Final. Rangers were the first football club in the UK to reach a European final in 1961. Glasgow has three professional football clubs: Celtic, Rangers and Patrick Thistle.
