Ladies and Gents try the thrift shopping experience on Byers Rd (west end). You can find some great values and wonderful items from purses, shoes, antiques, clothes etc…without paying the hefty department store tags.

Just walk the West End Streets, and feel the atmosphere, feel the vibe. Take the time to sit in a park, drink an ale and eat your stomach out in one of the great eateries.

An area of Glasgow that caters for all from the art lover, the fine diner, the shoppers, to the night clubbers, plenty to see and do all day long. Well worth a visit.

We rented bikes so we had enough time to see all there is to take in on the west side. Our hotel was on the east side due to being close to the office we were attached to, and although the east side has lots of fun places to eat and shop, the west side has elegance.

If history is one of your interests, Glasgow is the city to spend a few weeks rather than a few days!
