Merchant City, Glasgow

Situated at the east side of the city centre, the Merchant City is the edgy pulse of Glasgow’s heart, brimming with historical and cultural gems, rich in architectural heritage and surrounded by echoes of the industrial bygone era – an era that established Glasgow as the powerful 2nd city of the British Empire. Ship Builders, Iron Founders, Inventors, Locomotive Makers, Architects and Tobacco Merchants built the foundations of this vibrant, ambitious city.

The Merchant City is an especially big attraction for those with an avid interest in the arts – and distinctive, gourmet food. With its plethora of restaurants and wine bars where you can find food from every corner of the world including Persia, Brazil, Russica, Mexico, India, Spain, Scotland (of course) and an extensive range of Italian and Mediterranean Restaurants.
