Paisley is Scotlandís largest town. It came to prominence in the 12th century as a result of the establishment of Paisley Abbey.
By the 19th Century Paisley was established as a centre of the weaving industry giving its name to the famous teardrop pattern. This pattern, which was made famous by Queen Victoria, is still used today and forms part of the logo of the local authority.
Two famous companies which started out in Paisley but unfortunately no longer have a presence in the town are Robertsonís the preserve manufacturer and Brown and Polson, famous for its starch and cornflour.
Paisley has many attractions for the visitor.
