5 Places Locals love in Glasgow, not the usual tourist attractions!
“People always think I’m a bit crazy to suggest talking a walk around the Necropolis. I can see why they’d think that but I think the Necropolis has a great walk and is packed with so much history. From the graves to the names on them, I find it all so interesting and there’s a great view of Glasgow at the top.” – Roslyn S
“The Lighthouse is a gallery and event space dedicated to architecture and design… The building itself is quite wonderful with a viewing platform on the top floor and a huge spiral staircase in one of the towers.” – Sara M
“The view from Queen’s Park flagpole is really and truly worth the walk up the hill! I love that whenever you go here the view is slightly different as on a clear day you can see for miles, and it changes every season.” – Alison M
“A delightful wynd juxtaposing old and new developments” – Alison M on Yelp.
Virginia Court bridges the gap between the city centre and Merchant City, and is worth a visit for its lovely bars and restaurants (as well as some salons).
Properly traditional Scottish food, the menu is hilarious full of puns and thick Scottish slang. As well the atmosphere is nice with mostly candlelight to light the room, it seems private despite being relatively close together. The decor is superbly eclectic with a hodgepodge of old stuffy armchairs and old style English tea cups and plain cutlery. The food was out of this world.
