Rich food and history in Paisley's restaurants. As one of Scotland's largest towns, Paisley has a rich culture and a history just as colourful as the famous patterned shawls. Much of that history centred around the town's status as a major centre for textiles in the 19th century and this heritage can be seen still in the Victorian industrial architecture all around the town. Many of these buildings have now been renovated and repurposed, contributing to a new vitality where Paisley's restaurants play a central role.
