Tourist information

  Paisley is the largest town in Scotland, located just a few miles from Glasgow on the banks of the White Cart Water. 

Once a quiet market town, Paisley was transformed into an international hub for textile design and production during the Industrial Revolution. In the present day, Paisley is a vibrant town with a lively music and entertainment scene alongside a great selection of shops, museums and attractions combined with excellent travel connections across Scotland and its own international airport.

Although most famous for its textiles, Paisley was also home to a number of other industries including food manufacturers - marmalade, cornflour, mayonnaise, baby food and soup have all be made in the town.


Top attractions include Paisley Abbey, Coats Observatory, Thomas Coats Memorial Church and Gleniffer Braes Country Park.
