Tourist Information

Things to see & do in Paisley

Paisley is a town in Renfrewshire, eight miles west of Glasgow, on the northern edge of the Gleniffer Braes, straddling the banks of the River Cart.

Paisley is well known for its past textiles industry. The textile past came to associate the name of Paisley world-wide with the distinctive Kashmiri teardrop pattern it mass-produced on shawls. The motif can be seen all over today's Paisley and throughout Renfrewshire, and a superb collection of shawls is on display at Paisley Museum and Art Galleries.

 An essential stop is a visit to Paisley Abbey for a truly breathtaking interior of stained glass and countless fascinating features, including the 10th century Celtic Cross of St Barochan.  Nearby is one of Glasgow's fashionable modern shopping malls at Braehead and Xsite is an excellent indoor activity centre with an all year round ski slope.
