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

There are plenty of restaurants & coffee shops in this area. The atmosphere was great. There are also small boutique shops. The Glasgow University is in this area & there is also the botanic gardens & Kelvingrove museum to visit.

We rented a flat just off Byres road (through the Nancy Smillie shop). It was a perfect location, easily accessible to all parts of Glasgow as we were two blocks from the subway. There were ample restaurants and shops right outside our door and Kelvingrove Museum was within walking distance. W

It's lovely to just wander along Byers Road, checking out all the shops. There is a Waitrose and several bakeries and restaurants. The botanic gardens are lovely for a picnic. Parking is a bit difficult, but there are Pay 'n Display lots in the area.
