"... talk to the locals and get..." walk/explore Tip by FrancaLingua

walk/explore, Glasgow: 14 reviews and 11 photos


Favorite thing: ... talk to the locals and get a sense of their humour... gaze at the architecture (in many ways, rivalling Edinburgh's, even though Edinburgh gets exponentially more tourists).

Fondest memory: Some of my fondest memories are clubbing late into the night and then stuffing our faces in the wee hours at Change at Jamaica (is it still there??) ...

I lived in Scotland for two years, based most of the time in Edinburgh, but learned to really appreciate Glasgow's many great qualities. Because of its size and layout, it's not as tourist-site-accessible as Edinburgh, but if you've got a good map and some time, there is a great deal to see. The university has some fantastic buildings.
