Thistle Glasgow makes an ideal base for exploring the many galleries, museums and other attractions of Scotland’s second city. Glasgow has shopping and dining to rival London; the so-called ‘Golden Z’ formed by Buchanan, Sauchiehall and Argyle Streets is basically two-and-a-half miles of shops – and this Glasgow hotel puts you right in the middle of it. But if you’re not into shopping there are enough things to do in Glasgow to fill half-a-dozen weekend breaks with numerous galleries, museums and other attractions.
