There is nothing quite like standing on the steps of the Concert Hall (after coffee or lunch in the cafe) and taking in the view Buchanan Street offers on a winter afternoon, in the gloaming. Clear to the Cathkin Braes, windfarm, motorway, St Enoch's Christmas...More

there are some nice places to eat in merchant city too. You can try chaophraya, it's in buchanan street. also in buchanan galleries they have a section for sitting and eating, you can check that out too.
Could someone tell me what the approximate taxi fare from Buchanan Street bus station to Langside College at Prospecthill would be in the middle of the day? I know I could get the train from Central to Mount Florida but would prefer a taxi if it isn't too expensive. Thanks.

Which area should I stay at in November (5 Replies)
Will be going to the UK in November. Coming into Glasgow and flying out of Dublin. I will probably be in Glasgow two night.

Buses to Glasgow University from Buchanan St Bus station? (7 Replies)
I've been trying to find out what bus routes are the most frequent/convenient for getting between Glasgow University and Buchanan Street bus station. Sadly I'm a bit dense when it comes to routes and timetables. Any chance someone in the know can tip me the nod as to which buses might be most suitable, and have the closest drop off/pick up points to Glasgow University. thanks muchly :-)
