Full Day: Glasgow

There's some fantastic architecture in the centre of Scotland's largest city. Glasgow Cathedral, the City Chambers and the junction at Glasgow Cross all are fantastic examples of grand Victorian and Edwardian buildings. The city also boasts the most parkland of any in the UK. Bella Houston Park, the Botanic Gardens and Glasgow Green are all iconic parts of the city and are fantastic to take a stroll around for an hour or two.
