Is there more to shopping in Glasgow than main street stores?

Noelle, Ireland

12 days ago Report

I think so - but I didn't have enough time to really check it out so will have to go back soon to really check the shops. Close enough by train to Edinburgh (12.50 off-peak return) and there seemed to be some quirky wee shops there too!

All the Scottish people I met were so very nice, not just in Glasgow. I visited Edinburgh, Stirling, Glasgow, Tarbet, Falls of Cruachan, Taynuilt, Oban, and the Isles of Staffa, Mull, and Lunga. Consistently, people were friendly, smiled at you in the street, and offered to help whenever they saw you needed assistance. I would recommend Scotland just for the lovely people alone.

Glasgow is full of super buildings and museums that depict the history of the city. Go on the guided 'hop on and off' open top bus tour to get a flavour of the city - then you can decide which venues you want to visit.

What did you discover about the museums in Glasgow that wasn't in the guidebooks?

Glyn, United Kingdom

13 days ago Report

The guide books cannot really do justice to the museums - they have to be visited. There are many to choose from, but the Burrell Collection, the Kelvin Art Gallery & Museum and the new Transport Museum all stand out - each is worth a whole day's visit.

Did the theatre performances in Glasgow live up to their reputation?

Mandy, United Kingdom

Definatly! Went to see Derren Brown's new show Infamous and the theater made the trip even better. A rustically posh and cultured theater that can hold 1700 people is the perfect place to spend an evening enjoying anything from comedy to opera!

Glasgow has a thriving music scene with loads of venues catering for all types of music. From the bigger venues such as The Hydro and SECC to the 02 ABC & Academy there's something for everyone. Don't forget places such as King Tuts for which we would have never discovered the likes of Oasis! Glasgow's got the vibe in spades!

Pretty challenging getting around during the Commonwealth Games but the authorities had worked hard at communicating all the different means of transport. We used train, bus and taxi but also walked a lot. Many visitors used bikes!
