Where to stay in Glasgow

Glasgow's revitalized city center offers outstanding accommodations--along with some of the finest shopping outside London. Considered one of the finest Victorian cities in Britain, Glasgow is renowned for its centrally located hotels. Spacious rooms overlook the historical city center, and award-winning restaurants and trendy cafes occupy the lower levels. Farther away from the central areas, which are often noisy and crowded with tourists, is a world of small B&Bs and guesthouses. These considerably cheaper options offer quality lodging in quiet neighborhoods less frequented by weekend revelers and rowdy nightlife lovers.

  • Very knowledgeable staff here who were very helpful. I'd happily visit again
  • Nice little museum. Lots of interesting stories and information plus exhibits. Worth a visit if you have 30-40 mins to spare.
  • Interesting to see the police review of the stone of destiny "theft" in 1950 and that the old police badges were designed from the clans who held the areas of Scotland. Well worth a visit with knowledgable and really nice staff.
  • The best way to get here is using Google maps. Once ther you will see some street signs showing you the way. It is on the second flor. The museum is small but very nice. It has all the history of the police with all uniforms, weapons and other stuff. The two gentlemen that were there were very nice.
  • Well worth a visit. Can spend an hour or two reading about the history of the Scottish police (who were formed before Peel's London police) and exploring pictures and various items. Staff were knowledgeable and very friendly.
