As the biggest city in Scotland, Glasgow is full of opportunities. It has proven particularly popular with businesses in the financial services sector, with a number of international banks positioned in Glasgow’s financial district. The city has seen increased investment and growth in the tech service industry, which makes it a popular choice for businesses looking to settle here. Contrastingly, the creative scene is thriving, with plenty of art exhibits and festivals to attract businesses looking for a vibrant base. Business incubators such as CREATe make it an accessible city for startups in need of lower-cost office space offering support services.
Getting around the city is straightforward and is serviced by a number of bus routes. The subway is the most straightforward way of moving around the City Centre and the West End of Glasgow. With talks of improving Glasgow’s transport systems underway, the city could become better connected than ever before in future years. Glasgow Central station offers links further afield, across Scotland and England.
At the heart of the city centre is George Square, a charming part of Glasgow that is the base for many governments and council departments. In the East end of Glasgow sits Merchant City, one of the oldest parts of the city and a popular residential location. In the South East of the city sits Hamilton, an area which attracts manufacturing businesses with well-known brands such as Philips based here. Glasgow is home to a number of flexible office spaces including the likes of Regus, Clockwise Offices and Bizspace.
