I love the West End and when in Glasgow I always spend some of my time there. There is a fantastic array of eating/drinking places and some interesting little shops in the lanes behind Byres Road. If you have never been it is definitely worth a trip

I liked the west end of Glasgow better than I liked city center. It's a slower pace and there are a lot of historic buildings.

loads of nice restaurants, coffee shops and "Gifty" shops. Great buzz about the place. I tend to walk there rather than take the car, but it is so handy for the Underground for a quick stop off on your way in to or from City Centre.

I had no idea that the West End was such heart place to visit- parks, shops, restaurants, independants,galleries. Sad to say in Manchester we have nothing comparable.

Been here numerous times and always have a great time. Great architecture in the area, lots of trendy bars, restaurants and cafes. Ashton Lane is always a highlight! ...and to top it off it feels relatively safe walking around.

This is a fairly small area but to see most of it you really need to dedicate a day to appreciate it. Possibly starting off at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery when it opens, then walking through part of Kelvingrove Park up to the Glasgow University which is only about 560 years old and has amazing arches and cloisters and makes...
