111 Places in Glasgow That You Shouldn't Miss (Paperback)

Tom Shields

-  

Glasgow was once known as the Second City of the British Empire - the powerhouse of the industrial revolution, a great port and merchant city whose architectural and cultural magnificence hid a darker side of urban poverty and squalor. Today the heavy industry is long gone, and 21st-century Glasgow is comfortable in its role as a smaller, cleaner, greener city, a vibrant and stylish centre for the arts and learning, now even more friendly and culturally diverse. With a wealth of insider's local knowledge and engaging anecdotes, 111 Places in Glasgow That You Shouldn't Miss will guide you round a huge variety of intriguing sights, unique venues and surprising corners of this great city, helping you understand how the people made Glasgow and how Glasgow made its people.
