4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Walking around the cloisters area and the views out over Glasgow, Hunterian museum is excellent. You can also blend esily in to the local Kelvingrove Park easily and watch the wildlife along the river bank - great place to just wander around.

A wonderful and affordable experience! We were there on a bright and sunny Oct morning - a wedding was getting started and the piper added to the atmosphere. Beautiful campus.

“Hogwarts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I might be biased because I studied here but the University is always worth a visit.

Good bars and restaurants nearby on Byres Road and Ashton lane and some lovely buildings to take a stroll around...magical!
