As regeneration has transformed the waterfront the area has become a focus for tourism.
Some of Glasgow's most popular visitor attractions are located
along the River Clyde. The Riverside Museum on the north bank and the Glasgow
Science Centre of the south are just two of the city's must-see
attractions. SECC is a major focus for business tourism and
The SSE Hydro is poised to become one of the
world's leading venues.
For centuries, the River Clyde was the lifeblood of Scotland's largest commercial centre. Now regeneration is turning it back into a destination.
Shipbuilding was the main industry along the Clyde for around 150 years, but began to decline following the Second World War.
With improved access to the river, watersports opportunities are beginning to develop, along with river trips to explore the rich heritage of this stretch of the Clyde.
Arts and culture are flourishing amongst the Clyde Waterfront developments. New arts centres, public art and cultural activities are all part of the regeneration.
Excellent leisure facilities include a growing number of hotels as well as plenty of alternatives for how to spend your time beside the river.
Glasgow has the UK's best shopping centre after London. Come and discover the high street brands and designer labels in Scotland's style mile.
Hotels, restaurants, cafes and bars. There's plenty of choice on offer whether you're looking for a relaxed meal or a quick bite to eat.
By creating sustainable links - including bridges across the river - the full effects of the River Clyde's regeneration can be enjoyed and shared by everyone.
