Visit Hogwarts

A stunning building it has been built more than 200 years. We visit anatomy and zoology museums which were small but interesting.

A walk around the university grounds provides spectacular views of the city of Glasgow. The buildings are truly amazing. Must revisit to take the guided tour.

This was a surprise to go here. We walked past and just popped into the University and there was lots of rooms and museums etc. You could spend hours here. No one challenged us when we walked into splendid buildings and welcomed us in. Great surprise

Ok I am biast because I studied here, but whenever I return i find there's loads for the public to come in to see and do. My fave is the anatomy museum which contains some very strange things indeed! Also, from the back, beautiful views over the city!

Visited the Hunterian Museum while on business in Glasgow - an absolute must-see. The museum has a large variety of exhibits, well displayed and memorable. The university itself boasts beautiful architecture and is ideal for any scenic photographer.

It's amazing to think that this university was established before Christopher Columbus discovered America.
