Bus to Riddrie

by celtic10

Thanks to all who have been very helpful, I am actually from Australia currently travelling in Europe at the moment and then UK. I will be visiting folks in Lethamhill Place Riddrie, possibly arriving in at Central Station at 7.20 evening so Taxi might be the way to go, would 10 pound cover the taxi fare at that time. If I get the bus does anyone know where I would get off the bus.
Thanks for everyones help

£10 would cover it for sure. Probably nearer 7.
For buses, look at the http://www.travelinescotland.com/welcome.do
to work out best route etc

Or open Google Maps (for example http://maps.google.co.uk/ ) and search for your destination address: Lethamhill Place, Glasgow
in the search bar then go to Driving Directions on the left side, and Get Directions using Central Station, Glasgow
as your start point and this brings up directions using CAR, Public Transport or walking !
You will see that the destination point for the bus is along Cumbernauld Street at Tweed Crescent.
Another tool with Google Maps is the Street View and you can see the view of the Tweed Crescent bus stop if you wish ! And for that matter Leathamhill Place.

Perhaps you could ask the people you are visiting as to where you get off the bus. The bus driver might know. I'll have a scout around and see if I can get an idea, though Travelinescotland is a very good site.

here we go...... http://sjp.firstgroup.com/journeyplanner/enterJourneyPlan.do and you can fill in the spaces and up will come the answer! The way I did it was to put "Central Station" in first space, then "Lethamhill Place, Riddrie" in second space, then pressed search. You will be asked several questions re Central Station, just click on the first one. Re lethamhill Place, click on the Lethamhill Road, Riddrie one. Then press search and the answer will come up.
Lethamhill Place will be within spitting distance of Lethamhill Road. That much is a dead cert in UK addresses!

You can always phone when you arrive in Glasgow and tell the folks you are on your way, and they will probably meet you at the bus stop. Journey takes abut half an hour. Think you'll need exact change for the bus. And no, I don't know what the fare would be but it should be easy enough to find out on Google.

Lethamhill Place is also on the route of some buses to Cumbernauld. They leave from Buchanan Street bus station. Where to get off the bus is the big question.:-)I think that it will be one or two stops after Alexandra Park. It`s actually quite a nice wee area there. Houses with gardens.
(It may actually be the same stop as that for Barlinnie Prison):-)

That's exactly what I had been thinking but didn't want to put off the OP! Still, the gates are strong and the walls are high......

Travel Tips for Glasgow

A virtual visit of Glasgow's museums

by ange_famine

Glasgow museums have launched a photo library on their website, allowing you to view 15,000 (and growing) paintings, pastels or photographs displayed throughout the town.
Though the main purpose of this collection is to enable you to order prints or reproductions (particularly useful if you're a journalist or an education professional), I think the art lover can have a very good idea of the richness of Glasgow's museums and the variety of the collections they own.
It is also interesting in that you can see reproductions of paintings that are not always on display. You can either browse the images, or search by keyword or author.
The number of the object tells you in what museum it is hosted. If you are keen on seeing it in real life, always check with the museum before going as a lot of objects are sent away for lending.

Here is some of the classification:

simple number. ex: 2441 => Kelvingrove

35.number. ex: 35.238 => Burrell collection or Hunterian Gallery (paintings)
38.number => Burrell collection (ceramics)
45.number or 46.number =>Burrell collection (stained glasses or tapestries)
etc.....

pc.number. ex: PC.94 => Pollok House

T.numbers and letters. ex:T.1962.6.e => Museum of transport

GLASGOWS MILES BETTER

by hevbell

There is so much more to Glasgow than I ever gave it credit for. There are a heap of museums and attractions - such as those mentioned below - and amazingly most of them are free (although of course donations are welcomed). So there is a lot more to the city than shops and commercial buildings. Of course the shopping IS great!
Photo: George Square in the heart of the city centre. Probably seeing the Coca Cola Christmas parade and carol singing in George Square! It was a LOT busier than the day I took this photo and everyone was wearing Santa hats :)

Packing List

by TheBigMan

Its been said that if you dont like the weather in Glasgow wait 10 minutes and it will change. I have heard people say that they went to Glasgow and it rained so ... TAKE A BLOODY RAINCOAT AND STOP BLOODY MOANING. Apart from that take what ever you feel comfy in

Eat Outdoors!

by JiminYork

Tisso's is an Outdoor Clothing shop on Couper Street (not the one on Buchanen Street), but it has a brilliant little restaurant selling some terrific homemade food. The soup is usually exceptional, the sandwiches varied and made to choice, the specials vary from curries to cassseroles to pasta bakes. Hurry though, it's getting very busy....

Go for a wander away from the cars.

by deeper_blue about Buchanan Street

Glasgow has the largest retail shopping area in the UK outside London. Buchanan Street is a premier pedestrian thoroughfare, full of stores to suit all budgets, if you can afford it go into Thomas Pink for mens/womenswear.
