Glasgow might not be Scotland's preferred tourist destination, but the city actually houses a plethora of delights for visitors to enjoy. The largest city in Scotland, Glasgow welcomes tourists and business travelers alike. Most arrive by road, although the city's train stations and a number of small local airports offer alternative entry. Visitors will find an array of hotels to choose from, the majority of which are conveniently located in the city center close to popular tourist attractions and city amenities. Glasgow city center houses some of Scotland's most magnificent buildings. Visitors will want to check out the palace-esque City Chambers which house the city council, while Glasgow Cathedral and Necropolis is visually stunning. The latter dates back nearly 1,000 years and, amazingly, still sports its original roof timbers. Over the past 20 years or so, Glasgow has emerged as a cultural hotspot. Today the city houses a wealth of museums and galleries, all of which prove popular with visitors to this part of Scotland. The Gallery of Modern Art is widely regarded as the city's best gallery, thanks in part to an eclectic mix of sculptures, paintings and photographs. Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is another popular choice with art aficionados, while People's Palace contains an interesting collection relating to the ordinary lives of Glaswegians. The Burrell Collection meanwhile gathers a vast collection of fine art. Other museums in the city include the Riverside Museum, the St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, and the Centre for Contemporary Arts. Visitors looking for something a little different may enjoy the Museum of Transport, while the Science Centre is an ideal family-friendly attraction. Glasgow's cultural theme continues with its theatres and live music venues. The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and Pavilion Theatre both host the high arts, with classical music and more on display. At the other end of the spectrum, the O2 Academy, O2 ABC and King Tuts Wah Wah Hut regularly host pop and rock music. The city also hosts an assortment of festivals, including the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, Glasgow Fair and the World Pipe Band Championships. In addition to culture, Glasgow is also famed for its football. Scotland's two biggest football clubs – Celtic and Rangers – are both based in the city and regularly draw crowds of 50,000-plus. Rangers play at Ibrox in the south west of the city, while Celtic is based at Celtic Park in Parkhead. The city is also home to Murrayfield, home of Scotland's rugby union team. All three stadiums come equipped with an exciting atmosphere on game day. Glasgow also offers visitors a vast choice when it comes to shopping and dining. Recent rejuvenation of the city center has seen an influx of shops and stores, with visitors able to take in everything from souvenir stores to high end department stores. The city's restaurants are regularly filled to capacity, and offer culinary delights from across the globe. As with most destinations in the United Kingdom, peak time for tourists in Glasgow falls in the summer months between June and August. Winter can be very cold and would only appeal to the most hardy of tourists.
