Unfortunately some visitors to Glasgow miss out or do not know about Glasgow's West End which is almost like a miniature town in itself. There is something here for everyone - art galleries, visitor attractions, Glasgow University, interesting individual shops and lots of different restaurants. The area is full of students in term time as the university and a teaching... More

Glasgow is a great city for tourists, plenty of shopping areas (both designer and high street), literally dozens of great cafes, bars and restaurants, and a plethora of entertainment available. However the West End, previously renowned for it's trendy vibe, is looking a bit tired and run down. So many empty shop units, closed down bars and clubs etc make... More

Great shop for vintage at Great Western Road. Almost every visit a bargain for me or the husband. For instance, a cashmere sweater, a nice 80's blouse or a wax coat for reasonable prices!

I had heard good things about Glasgow's vintage shops but I was still surprised by the number of them on and just off Byres Road- andn the interesting stuff most of they had on offer. Definitely worth of few hours of my time.

It is not often that the suburbs of a city is the first port of call for visitors, but Glasgow's west end can probably lay claim to this. Glasgow's centre though attractive lacks many cultural pursuits often found in centres....you need to travel outside to experience these. It is in stark contrast to Edinburgh where the most interesting places are... More

The West End of Glasgow is worth a visit, due to the beautiful architecture and friendly feel of the area. I heavily suggest going in the summer as the botanical gardens are very pleasant, and while you're in the area go visit the grounds of the University of Glasgow. Another must see area is Ashton Lane, which is full of... More

Such a great location for a lively night out in Scotland's best city by far. Great bars, cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets.. Ashton lane and Byers Road are particular favourites for me.. so much to offer and easily reached via the clockwork orange subway!
