The Victorian industrial city par excellence and still the third biggest city in Britain. Glasgow was built up by the tobacco and sugar barons during the 19th century intothe workshop of the British Empire. though there has been a settlement here of sorts since the City‘s patron saint. St Mungo. set up shop (and cathedral) in the 6th century.

Anyone who has been away from the City for more than about ten years will not recognise it. such has been the frenzy of redevelopment. sprucing up. new investment and image building. Generally the developers seem. for once. to have got things right and Glasgow now claims with some justification to be the world's first post-industrial city. though widespread unemployment is still a major problem. For all that Glaswegians have an almost messianic beliefin their city and when the famous ‘Glasgow‘s Miles Better‘ slogan was produced in the early Eighties to convince the rest of the world ofthe improvements to the City it got immediate support.

Part ofthis image-making machinery has been heavy investment in Glasgow‘s already flourishing art provision and the city's consequent nomination as Europe‘s City of Culture for 1990. surprised everybody except the Glaswegians.

Glasgow is notoriously diffuse but George Square (U Buchanan Street) is the notional huh ofthe grid ofstreets running north-south and east-west which contain the main shopping and business districts. This is bounded by the River Clyde to the south. the High Street and Cathedral to the east. and the M8 motorway (east to Edinburgh, west to the airport and Greenock) to the north and west. Immediately to the east. around the cathedral. is the oldest part of the city but apart from the

People's Palace on

Glasgow Green to the south east. the massof featureless housing and light industrial estates beyond don't offer the visitor much. Over the river. the Citizens' Theatre. (L7 Bridge Street) still standing in glorious isolation where the notorious slums ofthe Gorbals used to be. the Garden Festival site (U Shields Road) on reclaimed dockland and Pollolt House and Park which contains the justly celebrated Burrell Collection are important landmarks. To the west beyond the motorway. the trendy West End embraces the University at llillhead. (U) the BBC. (U llillhead) and along the banksof Glasgow's other river. the Kelvin.
