Accommodation

by Glen30

Hello,

I am flying to Glasgow early next year to watch the LIVE Stictly Come Dancing.

http://www.strictlycomedancinglive.co.uk/default.asp?contentID=644

The show will take place at the "SECC Glasgow". Could someone recommend some B&Bs which are within walking distance from this place. I don't have to worry much about transport after the show.

Thanks
Glen

Look at http://www.secc.co.uk/ and then go to end of page on left: Discover - where to stay .....and look at Campanile?

Thank you Sir

The Campanile is your best bet. The area around the SECC is a b it of a wasteland and there are no B&Bs within walking distance - well, you could walk to the West End of Glasgow but I wouldn't advise it, as you would have to negotiate more wasteland and also roads/motorways, etc. You could also walk on the pedestrian bridge to the SECC station and then take a train into central Glasgow where you would have much more choice of accommodation. I guess you are sorted about how to get to the SECC? And how to reach the city from the airport - are you flying into Glasgow Prestwick or Glasgow International?

Check out www.smoothhound.co.uk and any of the Glasgow places with a G2 or G3 postcodes are within walking distance to the Exhibition Centre train station and you take your partner on the footbridge from there. :-)

stained glass windows

by willy_wonka

as everyone will know, im a bit of a stained glass window fan! i never used to be, but for some reason, whenever i go to europe or the UK, i come across such amazing windows that make me go WOW! the glass in glasgow cathedral was magnificent, and i really enjoyed checking it out!

A great Victorian glass-house

by globetrott

Many buildings of the end of the 19th century may be seen in Glasgow ! Just a few meters away from the carpet-shop you see this great Victorian glasshouse.

Quite a difficult construction for that time, and really beautiful by its architecture !

Horse racing @ Hamilton Park

by iaint

Visited this racecourse for the 1st time in July 08 for a Saturday evening meeting. 7 races starting at 6.10 and finishing 9.15.

Great value for £23 admission - thats for the club enclosure which puts you at the finishing line. Its cheaper for general admission, but obviously you don't see the finish so well. £2.50 for a racecard, and parking was free.

I liked the course - lots of trees and greenery. Plenty of food and drink outlets, all well staffed and accessible even on a fairly busy night. I had a picnic in the car park, so can't comment on their quality. Very nice parade ring and you can get very close to the horses.

No traffic problems getting in and out.

Sorry, but no pictures. It was a cloudy, overcast evening. Cash for bets.

Binoculars for following the action from a distance.

Suitable clothing - check the weather forecast. There is some cover, but not enough for everyone if it rains!

... and the amazing glencoe

by willy_wonka

glencoe is the scene of one of scotland's most tragic battles. today it is a peaceful glen, and one of the most beautiful areas of scotland.

take the time to sit back, and reflect in this beautiful region. if you are with a guide, listen to the story of the glencoe massacre, and be humbled at how such a beautiful area could have been the stage for such a shocking act.

a haunting history, with the landscape to match. glencoe is definitely worth a drive out from glasgow.

Suburban Nightlife

by kritur about Shawlands area

Don't disregard the suburbs of Glasgow for a night out. Most people head to the West End or the City Centre but there are great pockets of nightlife all over Glasgow. Shawlands is described by some as the new West End and it has plenty of new bars and eating places which are worth a go. Try Waverley Tea Rooms for a civilised night out and a great outside area. Plus the smoking ban in scotland means you don't go home stinking! On a weekend the bouncers are a bit more strict but mainly no football colours.
