  • This is my favourite walking place. If it rains or not. The youth who enjoy the sunny days or take their exercises. It always happens something exciting. For example you can hear the pipes sound or you can discover a very strange shape tree. Flowers are blooming permanently. The park is very clean and very popular .
  • My favourite park in Glasgow. Surrounded by beautiful skyline building of the west end. Great skate park. Fabulous walk along the River Kelvin to Botanic Gardens. Just love it.
  • A lot of interesting exhibitions here, kept me there for a while looking through it all. Superb building. Bit out of the way from the city centre to get to, but highly worth the trek. Great things to see for all the family.
  • Visited here on our last day in Glasgow, which was rainy so it was perfect. Wow did this museum ever have a lot on display!! Great variety of art, anthropology, historical pieces. And a stunning central section. Great place to spend the afternoon.
  • Wonderful building with so much to see, it's ideal for families, lots of helpful staff and cafe. It stands in large grounds, there is paid parking and an easy walk from the city.
