Some great places to eat as well as visit. Byrnes Rd. and Ashton lane are favourites for eating. Art Gallery and Kelvin Park worth a visit. 15 minutes mute walk across the river to the Transport Museum.

A better part of the city with pubs, shops, hotels, museums including Kelvingrove. More importantly another area to look for quirky or interesting buildings.

Some of the best restaurants and bars in the city are in the West End and it is usually quite busy and full of life

Mainly a local and student hub, it is worth the visit to Byers road. Quirky and local pubs, shops and many cafes and restaurants.

Easy to get to by Underground, runs from Kelvin Hall up to Botanic Gardens. Plenty of excellent cafes to have a pit stop. You must see Ashton Lane with its pubs and restaurants; Ubiquitous Chip is nearby.

Beautiful buildings, Botanic Gardens, Kelvin walkway, Riverside Museum, Kelvingrove park and museum, Glasgow University, Huntarian Museum, great eateries and drinkeries for all budgets. A great day out at any time of the year and things to do all day. My favourite Glasgow location.

The Oran Mor at the top of Byres Road is probably your best bet.
