International Relocation to Glasgow, UK with Sunset Moving
Are you approaching retirement and looking to move to another country and enjoy your life-long vacation? Or did you just land a great job in Glasgow and need to relocate there? Whatever the case is, Sunset Moving will assist you with your relocation to Scotland, UK.
One crucial thing everyone should do before moving, be it to another state or moving out of country, is get acquainted with the city they are about to start calling home. For that reason, we at Sunset Moving have put together some of the most important information about the city of Glasgow and the process of moving there.
About Glasgow, UK
Glasgow is the largest in Scotland, as well as the third largest city in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The city’s residents are called Glaswegians. Once a small rural settlement on the River Clyde, Glasgow today lies on an area of 68 square miles.
The People of Glasgow, Scotland
Glasgow is home to a little over 600,000 people. The city’s population is not quite diverse. Almost 95 per cent of Glaswegians are white, among which 87 per cent are Scottish and 6 per cent are of other British backgrounds (including Ireland). Asian nationalities make up for around 4 per cent of the nation, while the rest are black or Arab.
The official language of the whole country, including the city of Glasgow is English. Some 86 per cent of Glaswegians speak English only. Gaelic is spoken among less than 1 per cent of the population, as well as Scots. Around 1.5 per cent of people speak Polish, while other languages make up about 10 per cent of the population. Since pretty much everyone speaks English, you don’t have to worry about being able to communicate with the locals. The accent might take some getting used to, though.
Christians, including the Church of Scotland, Roman Catholic, and other Christian churches make up more than a half of the population. People of no religious affiliation comprise some 38 per cent, while other religions include Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, and more.
Places to Live in Glasgow, United Kingdom
Glasgow offers great neighborhoods to live in. The best way to experience them first hand is to travel to the city at least once prior to your international relocation. However, since that is not always possible, we at Sunset Moving have put together a list of those neighborhoods which were deemed most livable:
- Woodlands. Close to University Avenue and the heart of the city, this neighborhood is the perfect place for students. It is home to a large number of minority residents, such as Asian and Muslims – this is also reflected in the grocery stores and shops.
- Hyndland. This neighborhood is mostly populated by middle-class professionals and well-off young families. It is one of the more expensive areas, but it offers a very high living standard.Patrick. A very walkable neighborhood, in close vicinity to the University, this is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. It offers a large number of amenities, and is home to a handful of foreign students.
- Hillhead. Another student-oriented neighborhood, this area is home to a number of shops, bars, restaurants, and other amenities and entertainment venues.
The Weather in Glasgow, UK
Glasgow falls under the oceanic climate classification. This means that the winters here are cold and mostly overcast, with January mean temperature revolving around 41 degrees. Summer months are quite varied when it comes to weather. During the warmest month, July, the average highs are usually around 70 degrees. Glasgow sees a little less than 50 inches of rainfall annually, which is more or less evenly distributed throughout the year.
