With a large, bustling commercial hub interspaced with historical points of interest, stunning architecture and green spaces, Glasgow was a very pleasant surprise in my first visit accross our northern border...

What To Do

  1. Glasgow School of Art Mostly famous for its iconic Mackintosh Building, named after Art Nouveau pioneer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the school and its accompanying museum are a sight not to be missed.
  2. The Necropolis Maybe a little too macabre for some, this sprawling graveyard on a small hill is a solemn but pleasantly quiet place to reflect and take some photos, as it offers great views over the city.

What To Eat

  1. Papercup Coffee A lovely little coffee shop who roast their own beans, but offer a surprisingly wide range of delicious dishes alongside their array of hot drinks. Perfect for a cold Scottish winter’s day...
  2. Willow Tea Rooms Also designed by Mackintosh, these quaint tea rooms are a must for anyone traveling from outside the UK wanting to have a quaint afternoon tea. Arrive early or risk a very long wait!
