Glasgow: Central Station












City: Glasgow
Council Area: Glasgow
Place: Central Station








With more than 33 million passengers per year, the Glasgow Central Station is, as well as one of the most important transport hubs in Scotland, one of the commercial epicenters of the city. Built in its first version almost 150 years ago, its integral design is similar to that of the major railway stations of its time, with a big entrance for private cars, a shopping mall and even a hotel.

Glasgow: University of Glasgow












City: Glasgow
Council Area: Glasgow
Place: University of Glasgow








Founded in the 15th Century, the University of Glasgow is one of the oldest english-speaking universities in the world. Through its halls passed several of the personalities that gave birth to the Scottish Enlightenment of the 18th Century and it's currently a complex of several campuses who were added during the last hundreds of years, including a sector designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, father of modernist scottish architecture.

Glasgow: Necropolis












City: Glasgow
Council Area: Glasgow
Place: Necropolis








The Glasgow Necropolis was conceived, already from its beginnings, as a public access area of mixed use. This idea was based on similar cases in France, also in the 19th Century, in what was a different way of looking at the cemeteries, adapted to a new vision of landscaping and public space with more presence in the daily life of the modern cities. Beyond the visual beauty of its tombstones and monuments, the Glasgow Necropolis stands out especially for sharing hills with the Cathedral and the colossal Glasgow Royal Infirmary, which is probably one of the most gigantic examples of scottish architecture from the beginning of the 20th Century.

Glasgow: Cathedral












City: Glasgow
Council Area: Glasgow
Place: Cathedral






Built almost 800 years ago, the Glasgow Cathedral is one of the oldest buildings in Scotland. As was usual in its times, the Cathedral was the center of the public life of Glasgow during its first centuries, being the place where the University of the city was forged and even as a defensive point during some of the battles of the Reformation.

Glasgow: City Chambers












City: Glasgow
Council Area: Glasgow
Place: City Chambers






In addition to being more compact, the urban layout of Glasgow is much easier to read than that of Edinburgh. It follows the most used design in several european cities, consisting on a central square (in this case the George Square), a railway station with a direct connection (here being the Queen St) and finally the government offices, in this case concentrated at the City Chambers, of a victorian style not it's not so often seen in Scotland and whom was inaugurated by Queen Victoria herself at the end of the 19th Century.
