Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, said: “Glasgow is a dynamic city with a rich history that is extra special to me as my wife Joan is from Glasgow.

“Since launching the first property in 2015, Virgin Hotels has established a beloved brand amongst many, always ensuring that all offerings embrace and showcase the local community culture for all travelers to enjoy; and this property will surely do the same.”

James Bermingham, chief executive of Virgin Hotels, said: “We are thrilled to announce this exciting development in the vibrant city of Glasgow.

“Glasgow features distinctive art, music, shopping and much more."
