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.

  • Near Glasgow Cathedral and the Necropolis, this lovely little museum is set on three floors. It includes history and artefacts of the main religions and is very interesting. It includes a shop, cafe and a beautiful, small Zen garden. One would need a deeper regard for religion than I to really appreciate it. Certainly, though, if in the area it's worth a visit. Note: Just across the street is the 'oldest house in Glasgow' (see pic).
  • A brilliant place and a fantastic idea for a museum especially considering the modern context. This Museum is dedicated to showing how different religions practice their faiths and there are overviews of what each faith is about. There is also a nice cafe downstairs and really friendly staff one of which me and my friend talked to for a good half hour. There are also tours too, the place is clean and is situated near Glasgow cathedral. I would encourage anybody to visit.
  • Interesting and fairly unusual museum covering different religions, but lacking in good comparison/insight to make it really stick
  • A great wee museum with lots of fascinating information about many religions. Great displays in a beautiful building.
  • Nice building and a free museum, but too focused around Abrahamic religions to be a "religion" museum, specially Christian faith. Nothing special.
