Best Places To Live in Glasgow
Glasgow is often overlooked due to those who have a misconception that it’s a grey city which is dominated by ugly high-rise flat blocks, this is far from the truth. Glasgow for many years has become a highly suggested destination, as more people discover how wonderful it is.
The city has so much going for it, it’s extremely lively with a very strong music community, a vibrant nightlife, plenty of great restaurants and cafés to pick from and a wide choice of art collections that are worth visiting just for them. There is also a great shopping scene, with a great mix of things to keep yourself busy and offers everything you will ever need. Not only does it offer all this, but it does it in the surrounding of beautiful Victorian architecture. Another great thing about Glasgow is that you don’t need to go too far out of the city to see the countryside with beautiful parks and walkways along the river Kelvin all offering plenty of green space to give you a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Paisley is one of Scotland’s largest towns offering beautiful architecture and greenery through the town similar to Glasgow, but it has a slower relaxed pace of life, which could be great for those who work in the city but need a break. Not only is it one of the largest towns in Scotland but remains mainly unspoilt like many towns across the rest of the UK. It’s a great location for those who need to be commuting to Glasgow with a short 10 minute train journey or a 30 minute drive. It is the main town of the Renfrewshire region, which means there is al amenities you will need and also giving it plenty of business opportunity.
