The West End area of Glasgow is probably one of the nicest areas of Glasgow with many green parks, museums and places to eat. Worth a visit and a walk around it.

liked the "arty" feel of the west-end.The pubs and the restaurants and the little lanes.It has a good vibe and there are nice little shops-not your usual superstores.

By far the most beautiful part of the city of Glasgow. Elegant architecture and the stunning University of Glasgow buildings. See it from the top of the hop on- hop off bus.

Great atmosphere. Reminded me of Notting Hill in London many years ago when it was more "left bank" in feel. Wonderful range of independent shops interspersed with the more usual chains. Try the Hanoi Bike Shop restaurant - fabulous Vietnamese food.

Very nice neighbourhood. It has a lot of different coffee shops and alternative shops to explore. Home to the incredible University of Glasgow. Good for dinning out.
