    this has a great view of glasgow from the top and is a brilliant gallery and museum for only a few pounds entry fee. i always take visitors here. to make th emost of the view pick a clear day...

    a little out of town pollok country park is well worth a visit (best park in britain of 2007 and best park in europe 2008!) also has highland coos, the burrell collection and the best peace and quiet if some sanctuary from the city is required! -again a favourtite with visitors:

    Don't mean to hi-jack this thread but I booked the cheap flights from Belfast to Glasgow as well. I was wondering could anyone recommend any good reasonably priced restaurants in the centre of Glasgow. We're not great fans of Indian or Chinese food.

    I've popped your post into this thread as you may find some suitable recommendations here.

  • Just got back Wednesday afternoon after a lovely 3 days in Glasgow. The weather stayed fine and we had a really nice time. Did the shops on Monday, and the open top bus tour on Tuesday so squeezed as much as we could into the short time we were there. Also had a couple of great meals and yes the natives were very friendly. Would definitely go back.

    For a reasonably priced meal (for a good restaurant) in the city centre, The Living Room on St Vincent street is nice.

    They do lunches too. We were there recently and really liked it.

    if you're looking for free stuff to do then sign up to the website itison.com using the signup code CC04. Takes 2 minutes to sign up and you get out on the guestlist for bars, ckubs, theatre showings and exclusisive film screenings. as well as product launches etc. something for everyone. kinda cool!

    they send you an email and you just say yes or no to the guestlist. I got invited to a fake bake launch thing, couldn't go sadly as I was bogged down with coursework (bah!)



    Hope this helps xx

    Went here last weekend, also took in St Mungo's Museum of religious life and art, the cathedral and Martyrs School, First visit to Glasgow for the girlfriend, probably going to have to return to visit other places.
    Sometimes i surprise myself by being right.
