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
- 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.
- 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
- 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...
- 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!
