The views constantly catch your eye and surprise you. The soundtrack is ever-changing in a bustling town with a vibrant cultural scene. The welcome will make you smile!
Situated only 10 minutes from Glasgow, Paisley is Scotland’s largest town. Surrounded by rolling countryside, it is home to architectural treasures, hidden gems and a vibrant cultural scene.
The easily-walkable historic centre has Scotland’s largest concentration of listed buildings, including the iconic 850-year-old Paisley Abbey and Scotland’s oldest public observatory.
Paisley’s time as an economic powerhouse at the heart of the global textile trade is encapsulated in the rise of the Coats and Clarks families. Their legacy can be seen in town’s fine architectural heritage of Victorian buildings which dominate the skyline. Look out for mill buildings, statues and monuments as you walk around town – and keep an eye out for related streets names such as Gauze Street, Cotton Street and Silk Street.
If you love the outdoors, we can offer you woodland walks, watersports and wildlife. We also have some of the best shopping, entertainment and leisure options available in Scotland.
