“Welcome to Glasgow - the city where we punch people who are on fire."

- Frankie Boyle

Glasgow has, unfairly, earned the reputation of being a rough city rife with violence, football hooliganism and alcoholism. In fact, Glaswegians are some of the friendliest and most jovial on the planet, and more often than not will help you if you need directions or recommendations. That said, as in any city, always be sensible and keep a vigilant eye on your valuables. Below are some websites and phone numbers for things you may need; hotels, trains, taxis, buses. We have also put together a few pages of information about the surrounding area, a checklist of things to do before you leave the city, and translations of some of the more common and colorful phrases you may hear during your visit.
