    Hop-on, hop-off sightseeing bus

    by JessieLang Updated Jun 13, 2012

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This bus is a guided tour as well as a mode of transportation. The driver gives a narrated tour that runs all around the city, and is a good way to see a lot in a short time. One loop takes just under 2 hours if you stay on it The best view is from the open top deck when it’s not too cold to go up there.

    The bus makes 24 stops along the way, and you can get on and off as often as you want to. It runs every ½ hour in the spring and summer. The main stop is at George Square, but you can get on at any one of them. The ticket is good all day, so you could take the round trip to see where it goes, and then get on and off during a second round to see the things that interested you.

    Tickets are 11 pounds (9 for seniors) and you buy them from the driver.

    Transport Museum

    The Museum of Transport is located in the Kelvin Hall and is home to exhibits of the diverse methods of transport that have been manufactured in Scotland over the years. I first visited here during a civic recption and all of my nephews have spent many happy hours trawling around the place.

    Favourite exhibit is the recreated street scene with one of Glasgows trams.

    Just stand in the middle and slowly turn 360 degrees. This is at the heart of Glasgow.

    North side of square

    To the North is Queen Street station. The main route North of the river Clyde to places such as Edinburgh and the West Coast lines to Oban & Inverness as well as East to Edinburgh angh to the North of that Aberdeen.

    East side of square

    City Chambers. Well worth a visit. The tour guides are local and well informed. The internal architecture is wonderful and something the city is proud of. The marble cladding inside is said to show natural "pictures"

    South side of square

    Never seemes to have achived the same development status as the other sides.

    Nevertheless the faithful architectural maintenance of this side is absolutely key. It just has less of an exciting history.

    West side of square

    A beautiful mirror of the East side. Merchants Buildings highlight the affluence and cultural basis upon whih the city thrives today. There are now pubs embedded there. Just take some time to look UP at the ceiling of these before starting to drink rather than after the effects of it.

    Central Station

    by Frankinho Updated Jun 11, 2003

    Central Station is a nice place to watch people, have a snack or do some last minute shopping.

    It isn't usually as crowded as in this picture, which was taken 1 hr 40 min before the kick-off of the match between Scotland vs Germany on June 7, 2003. Lots of fans from both countries took the trains to Mount Florida station, which is close to Hampden Park, the Scottish National Stadium.

    Entrance to the underworld

    by CliffClaven Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You half expect the wicked witch to step out of this Grimm-like building in St Enoch Square. But in fact it is the entrance to the Glasgow subway system. The modern structure in the background, trying to make Glasgow look like Paris, is the St Enoch Centre, a megashopping complex that boasts an ice rink, a huge food court and parking for 750 vehicles. Shop till you drop and then go the pub way on the subway.

    From here you can catch trains to the rest of Scotland and England as well.And the Central station itself is architecturally splendid with the glass ceiling inside.
