Any trip to Glasgow is not done justice without a visit to the West End. The beautiful sandstone 19th century houses lay testament to a time when Glasgow was the richest city in the world (through its famous shipping, tobacco and manufacurimg). The west end has a distinct bohemian feel with a touch of chic. Cheese artisans sit amongst deliies... More

The west end is such a lovely part of Glasgow with loads of cafes and pubs and generally great shops. This is a must for all visiting the great city. I visit Glasgow regularly (every other weekend) and the west end is still magically wonderful every time! Loads of students and lovely people around

So many great bars and restaurants to visit in the west end. Ubiquitous Chip is amazing and well worth a visit. Tennents bar is a must to visit as well, more a traditional "boozer", but really busy, really friendly and great staff.

I'm biased, I live here and I love it. It has the feel of a town within the city. It's friendly, vibrant and increasingly cosmopolitan. It has great bars and restaurants and so many places now where you can get good food at reasonable prices. It's not offering Michelin star restaurants but there are a lot of good to very... More

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.
