Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and lies on the River Clyde in the West Central Lowlands of Scotland. Glasgow grew from a riverside, rural settlement to one of the largest seaports in the United Kingdom. From the 18th century the city prospered as one of the United Kingdom's main centres of transatlantic trade with North America and the West Indies.
The city centre is bounded by the High Street to the east, the River Clyde to the south and the M8 motorway to the west and north which was built through the Townhead, Charing Cross, Cowcaddens and Anderston areas in the 1960s. The centre is based on a grid system of streets and at the heart of the city centre lies George Square, site of many of Glasgow's public statues and home to Glasgow City Council. The principle shopping areas in Glasgow are Buchanan Galleries and the St. Enoch Centre. Princes Square and the Italian Centre are the places to go if you are seeking designer labels.
Glasgow has a rich sporting heritage and is home to two of Scotland's largest football clubs: Glasgow Celtic and Glasgow Rangers - sometimes referred to as the "Old Firm".
Located at the point where the River Hull joins the Hull estuary is the city of Hull, or Kingston upon Hull to give it its full name. The cobbled streets of the city's Old Town takes visitors back to days gone by. The city's Museums Quarter is home to a number of free museums and tells visitors the story of the city's past.
The city hosts a number of festivals each year. The Humber Mouth literature festival is held annually as is the Hull Jazz Festival which takes place around the Marina for a week at the beginning of August. A recent additional to Hull's festival scene is the 2008 founded Freedom Festival which is an annual free arts and live music event. Performers have included Pixie Lott, JLS and Martha Reeves and the Vandellas.
In October there is the annual Hull Fair which is one of Europe's largest travelling funfairs and is held on land adjacent to the KC Stadium.
As Hull is the largest town in the East Riding of Yorkshire it has developed into a good transport hub and destination for the region's shoppers. The city centre has three main shopping centres: St. Stephen's, Princes Quay and the Prospect Centre.
