Short Parking near Glasgow Cathedral

by civic1500

Could anyone live in Glasgow could advise where can I find a short parking (3 to 4 hours) near the Glasgow Cathedral.

There is a map of all Glasgow city centre car parks here:

http://www.glasgow.gov.uk/en/Residents/GettingAround/Parking/Carparks/

You will see that there is a car park on Castle Street near the cathedral. Click on 'City Centre north east' on the right-hand menu for details of charges etc (60p per hour). It is, however, quite a small car park so you may well have to search for alternative parking nearby.

When Isaid 'all', I meant council car parks. You may well find other, privately-run parking (often multi-storey): this will always be more expensive than council-owned car parks.

The multi storey car park at Buchanan galleries would be fine for you. You enter at North Hanover Street and it`s not far to walk along to the Cathedral. All of the multi storey car parks would be good for you. The city centre is not too big and you could always walk to the car. There is plenty of parking to the east of the cathedral in the John Knox Street/Duke Street area but your car may not be so safe.

Travel Tips for Glasgow

Top of the pile

by Eric1977

. What can you say about Glasgow that hasn't been said. Firstly the trendiest city in Britain and some of the best nightlife. The people here are unbelievable, the most friendly and open people I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. Being Irish and our supposed reputation for 'the craic' we are miles behind Glaswegians and their approach to life. They have mastered the balance of a busy work life and a fantastic social life. If I have one regret in life is not accepting my place at Strathclyde University and choosing Aberdeen instead. You can walk in to any pub and find yourself in amazing conversations within minutes.

Some may say it doesn't possess the aesthetic beauty of Edinburgh, b****x take a look at the cathedral, the university and in and around George square.

My all time favourite place, only thing that could make it better is the legalisation of certain herbs. Too many to recount but the people are what make it so special.

Scots language and history

by chichino1

The presence of 43 university departments of Scots language in German Universities as opposed to zero in English universities somewhat shows up the inequalities of the United Kingdom.Glasgow University has always had its Scots language dept as well as its history dept. and this institution has for centuries been a torch bearer in the cultural/linguistic battlefield that is language.
The Glaswegian patter has been analysed to be Scots ,highland Gaelic pronounced Gaaalick,english and the 19th century Irish immigrants.Yet it is nontheless Scots and more and more books are written in .it
Most cultured Scots call this lallans and their magazine of the same name is an interesting collection of prose and poetry.In feb/Mar the mitchel library hosts www.ayewrite.com a writers festival .lots of interesting people and lectures and workshops

National Stadium

by weewatty

Glasgow is home to Scotlands National Football Stadium, Hampden Park.

Usually filled to the rafters with the forever faithful Tartan Army cheering on the boys in dark blue to victory (well sometimes).

The Stadium also hosts music concerts, U2 and Oasis being the last couple. I was lucky enough to get along to the Oasis concert and this photo is from that said gig. LIVE FOREVER!!

Also located at the Stadium is Scotland National Football Museum, well worth a visit it is too. A Good Voice.

Hire a car and see Loch Lomond...

by sharonn

Hire a car and see Loch Lomond only 45 minutes in the car! Beautiful scenery....

A few years ago if you´d continued driving past Loch Lomond towards Cambletown and beyond, (where the scenery is remarkable but sometimes very lonelsome) you would have ended up arriving at one of many military bases and the menacing looking guards that watched these complexes made it fairly certain you weren´t going any further!

These days following the end of the cold war it is warming to note that Europe and the world is now somewhat safer but sadly the withdrawal of these troops and closure of these bases has had a negative effect on the small communities.

Many a village has the signs that the shops and small businesses are struggling to survive, it is surprising to see how reliant the communities who campaigned so hardly against the first prescence of NATO bases, have suffered when they´re campaigns were realised.

The former base at Machrihanish has one of the UK´s largest runways it is an extremely odd site in a location so remote and one that brings the oddest thoughts.

I even heard once it was big enough to act as an airstrip for the Space Shuttle and that if necessary the Space Shuttle would be picked up by a converted Jumbo to return it to the US this might not be true but it certainly looks large enough.

Football downstairs, kareokee upstairs.

by LakeFever about The Horseshoe

It was a pub up and down.....downstairs had football on and pints slinging...lights on, not dark and dingy....we started and finished out evening upstairs simply die of the fun at hand...kareokee (sp?).. it was all locals and they were hilarious....the antics and song and outrageous by regular folk in a regular beer induced atmosphere, were all the right ingrediets..
A group of us ended going out a second evening with the horseshoe as the starting point.....its worth the laugh. Pub wear ...casual and comfy
