Glasgow has the largest urban economy in Scotland and is the one of the fastest growing cities in the UK in term of job growth. Most of the city centre has an economy that is service based with much of the emphasis on public administration and retail.
There are dozens of large scale business parks located through the city, with many being located near the River Clyde. Some of the most prevalent of these include Riverside Business Park, Skypark, The Hub, Hillington Park Innovation Centre, Woodside Business Centre and Springhill Parkway. Popular streets for office space in the city centre include Cambridge Street, Argyle Street, Buchannan Street, St Vincent Street and Wellington Street.
Road links all around the city are excellent, even though Glasgow has the lowest rate of vehicles per road compared to any other UK city. Motorway links run right through the city centre. The M8 is the main motorway, going right from Edinburgh, around the west of the city and right out to the west coast. The M74 runs along the south of the city and is the main route straight through to England.
Railway links in Glasgow are split between two stations: Glasgow Central and Glasgow Queens Street. Glasgow Central mainly houses all routes to the east coast, south and England, with Glasgow-London being one of the busiest rail routes in the UK. Glasgow Queen Street is home to most domestic routes is the hub for trains going north to the Highland, and eastwards towards Edinburgh and the east coast. It’s always busy anytime of time for the Glasgow – Edinburgh route and has an average journey time of 50 minutes. A two line, one circle subway system connects the city centre to the west and south of the city and stops off at some of the main parts of town including Hillhead, Partick, Ibrox and Buchannan Street.
Glasgow International Airport is the main airport for the city. Located just a few miles east of the city centre near Paisley, it houses flights that go almost anywhere in the world. Glasgow Prestwick Airport is the second airport, 27 miles south on the coast and it primarily used by Ryanair for flights to Ireland and mainland Europe.
Think of the M8 as a dividing line between the city centre and the west of town, where the University of Glasgow takes up most of the room. The city centre is also the location for Glasgow Caledonian University, University of Strathclyde and Glasgow School of Art.
Glasgow is a very active city, both in terms of sports and social life. With two large football teams (Celtic & Rangers), multiple cycle paths, many rugby grounds and sports centres built for the Commonwealth Games, there’s an opportunity to carry out some sort of sport around almost every corner. The city centre is famed for having one of the biggest bar and restaurant scenes in the country, with the majority of these being located within a half mile radius of Glasgow Central Station. It is also seen as one of the greenest cities in the country in terms of green space per square mile. Roughly 20% of the city is covered in parks.
