Yet more things you need to know about Glasgow


Glasgow Cathedral is the most complete medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland (pictured above). Our social programme at Glasgow School of English often includes visits to the cathedral and the nearby St Mungo Museum of Religious Life.

While we know that some of our students don’t drink alcohol for religious reasons, many others do. If you like a beer (or even if you don’t!) then when you come to study with us you should go to the Horseshoe Bar in Drury Street in the city centre. It is a very old bar, established by Calvary Captain John Scouller in 1884. It is famous because its bar, measuring 104 feet and three inches, is the longest continuous bar in Europe.
