Nice little streets with lots of restuarants and bars. Easily accessible by the subway from the city centre.

Can't beat walking around the West End. University, Byres Road, through Kelvingrove...all you need to hope for is the rain to stay away. Highly recommend stopping for tea in one of the many cafés on Byres Road, and at least a short visit to Kelvingrove. Definitely a highlight.

Overpriced drinks & surly staff for what is basically just a pub in one of the only decent areas of the city. To boot the staff don't really understand the difference between Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc which was served with dirty lip stick stained glasses.

If you travel by car , the only thing wrong with this lovely part of Glasgow is trying to find a parking space ! However , public transport is very easy , subway stations in easy reach and regular bus service . apart from being a very historic area og Glasgow , with the University and other historic buildings ,...

One of my favorite parts of Glasgow. A little bit of everything for everyone. Nice dining, nice bars, nice sight-seeings, nice art. You can't go to Glasgow and NOT visit the West End, you just can't.

If you are coming to Glasgow make this a destination. The are an abundance of bars and great places to eat. You can just walk from place to place, pop in and enjoy. This never disappoints, even when it is raining.
