Staying near Carling Academy and getting to/from Prestwick airport

by happyhourkid

Hoping someone can tell me where is a decent place to stay and some of the good pubs in Glasgow near the Carling Glasgow Academy. Doesn't necessarily need to be the Ritz Carlton, but then again I don't want the Bates Motel either. Something decent for a modest price. I don't even care if its a hostel, as long as they offer private rooms with like a 2-3 person maximum. I'm looking for something near the Academy-somewhere within reasonable staggering distance because I will be drinking heavily celebrating the reunion of the Verve, which is why I will be in Glasgow in the first place. Also, I wouldn't mind knowing what the best combination of reliability and economy is for getting to and from Prestwick Airport, as I have a flight to Latvia a couple days later. Whoever can help out the best wins an ice cold pint of your choice, personally paid for by me. :) if not that, then some mad props.

Thanks,

Happyhourkid

Possibly the Eurohostel, which is at Central Station, more or less. And is close to the Carling Academy. The best way from Prestiwck to Glasgow is to take the train, which will take you to Central Station. If you are coming in by Ryanair, then if you produce your boarding pass or e-ticket, then the train fare will be half price. Look at the Prestwick airport website and checkout the links for travelling to and from the station by train.

The Eurohostel is on Clyde Street (right on the North bank of the river Clyde) www.euro-hostels.co.uk/Glasgow_hostel , the Central Hotel in the station is not outrageous but depends on your budget.
Carling Academy is South of the river, about 5-7 minutes walk from the eurohostel. There are lots of hotels in the city centre, all just North of the Academy (just residential - light industrial any further than the Academy South side of the Clyde).

A L S O further to earlier answer, show your flight itinerary on the train to/from Prestwick to Glasgow Central and you pay half price

Travel Tips for Glasgow

Where Am I? Athens, Washington .... Glasgow!!

by scotlandscotour

Oh, look at this!

This is Glasgow. The picture is of the Old Exchange, now a Bookshop (with a cafe - thankfully) ... oh so civilised. You might think I exagerate, but there are so few places like this in Scotland (UK?) and so many beautiful old buildings are left to rot, my heart warms every time I see this. Explore this area, between Central Station and the Gallery of Modern Art, ... Buchanan Street, Queen Street .... some lovely street cafes, and George Square is just 2 minutes away. Conveniently placed between the train and coach stations, and a great area to hang out.

You can probably buy it in Glasgow

by mac-me

Comfortable shoes are an absolute must if you want to see all that this great city has on offer (unless, of course, you want to wait and buy them here!)
Don't forget to pack an umbrella or a raincoat no matter what season you come. Unless you have special prescription drugs you will have no problem buying all the toiletries and medical supplies you require. No need to over-burden yourself with photo-equipment as it is readily available in Glasgow, both in specialist shops and in other stores. I know I said that there are a lot of green areas in Glasgow but I wouldn't plan on camping in any of them! Enjoy your visit to Glasgow which has a reputation for being one of the friendliest cities in the world. You will probably find one trip will not be enough!
The main tourist information office is in St George's Square in the city centre. In there you will get the combination of friendliness and knowledge - they will tell you all you need to know and smile at you when they're doing so!

Bothwell Castle

by saraheg77

This castle is located about 10 miles southeast of Glasgow between the towns of Uddingston and Bothwell. It was an interesting castle in ruins that was fun to explore and wasn't very crowded. If you're in the area, check it out!

ALL UNDER ONE ROOF

by hevbell about Braehead Shopping Centre

This is a large shopping centre a few miles from the centre of Glasgow, near Hillington. Its full of all the usual High Street stores such as Next, M&S, Gap, Wh Smith, Sainsburies, Warner Brothers and countless others. Me and my friend spent far too much time wandering around here trying to do our Christmas shopping! There are quite a few shops there that we don't have down here in Ayrshire and, since there is heaps of parking and its really easy to get to, we like to go up there and make a day of it. There is a retail park across the road (Curries, Next Home, PC World, B&Q etc) and Ikea is about 5 mins away. Anything and everything - clothes, books, jewellery, cosmetics, electrical goods, food, CDs, gifts - you name it, you can get it here.

Old shop re-instated

by clivedinburgh about Bar Oz - Now Coopers

Bar Oz that with it's confused interior and mock australian memorabillia has been consigned to the the scrapheap.

In it's new incarnation the bar (Coopers) has taken the name of the grocers shop that was a West End landmark on this site for decades (the brass nameplate is still embeded into the pavement). The bar has been extremely well updated and now offers a combination of good food and a relaxed stylish bar. Spent New Years Eve in here and had a great night followed the next day by watched the Bhoys get the year off to a great start. Casual
