    My son had his wedding and reception at House for an art lover. The staff and venue were absolutely fantastic. All involved agreed it was a beautiful venue and the staff looked after our every need perfectly. Top marks

    I visted two exhibitions here in March, yes alot of the building has been destroyed but very much so still a lively hub of creative energy. It is worth a walk from the town, Garnethill a very interesting part of Glasgow, albeit quite steep!

    Climb the steps and you have a great view of the city. Take the lift and you get an alternative perspective. The Mackintosh exhibition is very interesting with models, time lines and furniture, there is a cafe and a shop too. Lovely staff made the whole thing even more pleasurable

    High end shops have found a home in the Prince’s Square in Glasgow, a place people go to admire the architecture, the trim and features, the never-ending escalators. It is still a shopping mall, after all.
    We delighted in unique furnishings like the Harry Potter style mirror and the oversized deck chairs, where we sat to listen to a local choir giving renditions of Hallelujah and then Bohemian Rhapsody? This is a stylish place. You can pop in for a look, but if you’re coming to shop, maybe take your own wardrobe up a notch first.

    This is a short walk from the Kelvingrove museum (10 minutes). Free admission. So glad we made the effort to visit. Some quality paintings on display, old masters and modern. Took one hour to look around. We also went to the Mackintosh House (admission charge). Oh wow, fantastic to see the original furniture and interior designs. Its not really suitable for children as you are not allowed to touch the furniture. Mackintosh has left a design legacy that is known around the world. We didn't have time to visit the Hunterian museum.

    Good selection of stores - fashion, food, department store, etc.
    Good for dinner options if you are looking for somewhere to eat out. Morrison a supermarket is in complex next door.

    I visited here with my gran daughter for next , build - a - bear boots , Burger King and John Lewis . The next trip was a fail for us as they never had what we were looking for but the women’s department was tidy but the children and men bit definitely needed a tidy in men’s there was socks and boxers on the floor and at the children’s but there was a lot of rubbish for others store , all the clothes in the children’s bit weren’t organised good ethier . Build - a - bear was a success for us my gran daughter picked out a cute bear in the sale and the staff were lovely and so good with kids my granddaughter didn’t want an outfit for her teddy but if she did there would be loads to choose from . Once my grandaughter and I left build a bear we seen there was a foodcourt with a burger king upstairs so we headed up there it was very cofusing to get up there , there was no stairs or anything up so the only way to get up is through John Lewis , once we finally got up se noiced it was dirty ( not as bad as st enoch center ) but still very dirty there was also not one table so we had no luck eating there . Luckily when we walked through John Lewis we noticed there was a tea room so we ate in there , I have to say I was glad we ate there instead beacuse the food was so nice and cheap priced my gran daughter got iron bru and a chocolate cake she said it was lovely I got a cinnamon cake and coffee unfortunately my cinnamon cake was too much for me so my gran daughter helped me finish that off you can also just leave your try for the staff to take away and bin . After John Lewis we went to boots to see if there was anything in the sale boots was a very , very tidy and clean store compared to some of the other ones unfortunately for us most of the sale stuff was away but luckily my gran daughter got a face mask and some Mario stickers she got both for £5 which I think is brilliant. The center is clean overall but I feel as if it could be doing with a small tidy

    Great shopping centre with various things going on to attract customers.

    This time it was the costumes from the TV Show, the masked singer with a range of the real thing available to view and a fair sized crowd sizing them up. Whether any of those looking at them would have fooled the judges remains to be (never) seen but the excitement of the kids who were looking at them suggests that the management of the shopping centre have a winner on their hands with this feature.

    Great range of shops and eating houses to complete our visit.

    One of the better shopping malls in Scotland.

    Barras market is an absolute clash between the generations. All the stalls are either antique/junk stalls with so much broadly undesirable stuff that you wonder how they ever stay open, and trendy millennial stalls selling fancy cookies and thrifty clothing and such.

    In a way it is nice that the barred has preserved so much of the past, there aren’t many places like this anymore and it is very nostalgic and unique, you could find some things here you’d never find anywhere else. On the other hand like I said some stalls are just pure rubbish, like rejects from a charity shop, or worse have offensive items like racist memorabilia or a corner dedicated to “wimmin’s books” with old illustrations of housewives being spanked that make my stomach turn.

    There are definitely some gems though. Cookie Lady Mel makes some delicious bakes and if you are a maximalist you have GOT to check out Lulu Makes Things, she’s the best upcycler I’ve ever encountered. Honestly the Barras is worth visiting at least once, it’s a Glasgow staple

    Beautiful craftsmanship with traditional themes. Lovely to find gifts that are not industrialized pieces. Helpful staff.

    Cannot fault this company and the high standards they strive to maintain, all aspects of my several visits were fine with the expert attention to my fitting and alterations where needed.

    Have been going there frequently for quite few years. Nowadays it is not nearly as good,with much fewer stalls. You can still get some bargains, but no so many. Heavily frequented by foreigners, Eastern Europeans and Africans, and there is a lot of theft,mainly from the traders, but you do have to be aware of pickpockets.
    OK for fruit and veg, and the meat wagon does good deals.
    A complaint I have heard from sellers is the rudeness of the organisers' staff, and I have heard it myself. Also it is expensive compared to most car boots. Still worth an occasional visit, but I wouldn't go every week.

    Always a super way to do some Christmas shopping and I’m looking forward to going to the next one in November 2021. I’ve picked up some fantastic unique gifts here for the last few years, always different makers/artists of a consistently high standard in attendance.

    What can we say...our wedding day was honestly the most perfect day and we wish we could do it all over again. This was all thanks to The Engine Works. They were incredible hosts, so professional, friendly and everything was flawless from start to finish. Everything and anything we asked for was executed to perfection and if you are looking for a blank canvas venue, then this is most definitely the place for you!

    Thank you so much to Erin and Leigh in particular who were just fantastic in creating the wedding of our dreams.
