Glasgow the biggest city in Scotland.
While staying in Edinburgh we also planned a day trip to Glasgow. We took the ScotRail to Glasgow, it’s a 55 minutes ride. Meanwhile you can enjoy the beautiful landscape. Glasgow is the biggest and busiest city in Scotland and it’s located on the banks of the River Clyde.
Unfortunately the weather was not on our side that day, rain and cloudy. We know we could expect this kind of weather around this time of year. But luckily we had our umbrellas with us so it didn’t stopped us for exploring this city!
Our attractions list :
An old cathedral. Incredible gothic architecture and it has this beautiful stained glass. It’s worth visiting, and the entree is free.
The Necropolis is next to the Glasgow cathedral. While on holiday we don’t really expect to visit a graveyard. But as we walked around we came to this cemetery place. Lots of big tombstones and it’s fascinating to read the gravestones too. You will learn a little bit more about the history of the people who have lived in Glasgow back in the days. From the top of the hill you have a great view of Glasgow.
For the people who loves to shop, the main shopping street in Glasgow! So many stores here.
It’s located in the center. A really beautiful building. If you want you can take a tour which is free. Unfortunately we didn’t do that, because of the lack of time. But when you have the chance go for it!
We went here to see some modern art. When you go downstairs you have this lovely library with a cafeteria. Strolling around the city can be exhausted, so it’s a great place to sit here for a good rest while reading some travel books like we did hihi. ( well ok.. also waiting for the rain to stop)
A nice square in the center of Glasgow.
We know and we are sure there are many more places to see and do in Glasgow. Let us know if you have any recommendations!
