If you go to Glasgow you have to see the west end. Kelvingrove museum and nearby bars and restaurants are great. Ashton lane has interesting bars and restaurants and a small cinema. Botanic gardens is a nice park and the indoor gardens are amazing.

By big city expectations, this is pleasant surprise. With a cosmopolitan atmosphere coupled with a strong sense of community living there are many gems to be found amongst the lanes and small independent traders. It is easily reached by the tube and you are in easy reach of the Botanical garden, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. This part of Glagow... More

I lived here for 9 months and absolutely adored it! Be sure to walk around Kelvingrove Park which connects to the Botanical Gardens along the river. Walk up and down Byres Rd. - packed with great restaurants, pubs, shops, grocery stores, etc. Ashton Lane was my favorite side street of Byres Rd. - it's gorgeous during the fall/winter when the...

Short subway ride, at around 3 GBP each... Small, very cozy restaurants all along the streets. Great place to have a drink. Would not recommend it for shopping though... everything was over priced...

The easy access to several museums and the gardens made this a perfect place to stay. Restaurants, pubs, the subway, and river walk were all just step away.

My cousin who lives in nearby Carlisle, UK took the train up to Glasgow to give us a tour of the city, which were his old stomping grounds. we had a wonderful afternoon checking out the sites of the west end. So much history to appreciate.

We always go out at the West End bars and restaurants, we love it, particularly the Ubiquitous Chip. This time our great finds were two excellent restaurants, "The Ox and Finch" and "The Ganmet". Fully recommend.
