Got a few hours to spare in Scotland’s largest town? Paisley boasts the largest number of listed buildings anywhere in Scotland except for Edinburgh - making the town a must-visit destination for architecture and design buffs.
Before planning a day out a few key criteria need to be met: you need to be able to get there easily, have plenty of culture to soak up, some great shopping choices and excellent places to eat and drink - Paisley has all these things in spades.
It has all the qualities of a major city, but still maintains the identity and charm you'd associate with a Scottish town. It also has a real sense of scale you wouldn't associate with many towns.
I love Paisley because you must have the only Abbey worldwide with an ’Alien’ gargoyle! #WhyILovePaisley
I've lived and worked around Paisley for the majority of my life and so it holds a special place for me - it'll always be a place I see as home. Paisley is unique with a great mix of people, places and events to enjoy throughout the year.
