Glasgow’s Burrell Collection is one of this culturally rich city’s most popular galleries, and with good reason.
The diverse collection of artefacts includes medieval armour, weapons and stained glass, Islamic art and items from ancient Egypt and China – with a couple of Impressionist paintings by the likes of Degas and Cézanne thrown in for good measure. The variety of items on display means that there’s definitely something for everyone, from historians to small children!
The building itself is an architecturally exciting patchwork, with items of the collection itself built into the fabric of the mixed modern and 16th Century construct.
Easily reached by trains from Glasgow Central which run four times an hour, the Burrell Collection makes an ideal stop in your Glasgow holiday schedule.
