Why Move to Glasgow?
Perched proudly on the banks of the River Clyde, Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and was historically considered ‘the Second City of the British Empire’.
A once mighty industrial powerhouse decorated with grand Victorian buildings, Glasgow has recovered from its post-war decline to re-emerge as a significant UK hub for commerce, tourism, culture and sport, hosting the Commonwealth Games in 2014.
A city of contrasts, carefully combining beauty and rugged functionality, Glasgow has evolved over the last couple of decades to become one of Britain’s most trendy destinations and was one of the first few cities to be designated a ‘European Capital of Culture’.
Packed with awe-inspiring street art, stylish bars, and one of Britain’s best live music scenes, Glasgow has well and truly relinquished its shackled reputation as an old grey town to emerge as a cosmopolitan city.
The diversification of cultures has spearheaded new opportunities and brought value to the local economy, perhaps best reflected in Glasgow’s exciting culinary scene which saw the city named ‘the curry capital of the UK’.
Many people are now looking to ditch the crowded streets of the Big Smoke or other big cities in the UK to move to glorious Glasgow.
They are drawn by possibility for an increased standard and quality of living in a city where wages are steadily growing and don’t far outstrip outgoings such as rent.
Another large factor is space. The average price per square metre for property in Glasgow was £1,625, well below the average across Britain.
Despite the rugged reputation painted of Glaswegians over the years you may be surprised to find that they are actually incredibly warm and friendly, albeit very open people.
Glasgow Schools & Education
Those locating with young families will be pleased to know there is plenty of choice in terms of schooling Glasgow with 29 secondary schools and 149 primary schools.
Hyndland Secondary School, Notre Dame High School and Holyrood Secondary School have all had excellent student exam results and the Glasgow Gaelic School (Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu), is the only secondary school in Scotland to teach exclusively in Gaelic.
Glasgow is also major centre of higher and academic research, with five universities within 10 miles (16 km) of the city centre.
The city has over 55,000 full time students during term times, the highest of any city in Scotland.
Working in Glasgow
Glasgow’s growing financial hub, which is listed as being one of the largest in the UK, means that the city holds great job prospects for anyone looking for employment and the city itself sustains more than 410,000 jobs in over 12,000 companies.
The city has grown from its historic shipping and trade origins to embrace its role in the engineering and manufacturing post-industrial period.
Subsequently, Glasgow became a major player in the Scottish Enlightenment movement, producing impressive art, music and architecture and tourism is also a massive source of its economy.
In recent times, Glasgow has attracted a growing number of Blue chip financial sector companies which have established significant operations or headquarters in the city.
Companies such as Aggreko, The Edrington Group and Albion Motors all have their headquarters here.
Commuting around Scotland for work is also another viable option.
Being located just under an hour west of the capital city of Edinburgh, means that many of the local Glaswegians commute to work by rail.
Glasgow has a diverse property market that caters to various preferences and budgets.
The city offers a mix of architectural styles, ranging from Victorian and Georgian townhouses to modern apartments and newly developed neighbourhoods.
Glasgow’s property landscape features a combination of traditional red sandstone buildings and contemporary designs, showcasing its rich history and urban regeneration.
The city is divided into distinct neighbourhoods, each with its own character, such as the trendy West End, known for its bohemian vibe and vibrant nightlife, or the up-and-coming Finnieston area, renowned for its gastronomic scene.
Glasgow’s property market benefits from excellent transport links, including efficient public transportation and proximity to major road networks.
The city also hosts renowned educational institutions, including the University of Glasgow, attracting students and contributing to the rental market.
With its cultural attractions, green spaces, and strong sense of community, Glasgow offers a diverse range of property options to suit various lifestyles.
