  • Once in,it's hard to leave

    Most libraries conjure a rather staid silent image,the progressive Mitchell has changed that with its theatre ,art galleries and a new huge internet room complementing the existing free access suite of 50 on the 3rd. floor.Due to open this month the new 150 terminals is on the ground floor and will be open a lot later than the existing library.>Ironically although the Mitchell and other local libraries have never had more money at their disposal the no. of books bought is the smallest ever.
    There are very important collections and rare manuscripts as well as

    Unique Suggestions: Go early in the morning, by 11 there are Q.s

    Espresso Coffee

    by IanMacPhail Written Apr 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The quality of espressos in Glasgow is the best that it`s been. (chance of a pun missed!) However a couple of places serve coffee that comes out of a big boiler type machine and you won`t see your coffee being made. The makers of this alternative type of espresso are AMT in the rail stations and Pret a Manger. Both coffees are highly drinkable but not made in the expected way. If YOU prefer those big milky coffees then it doesn`t matter how they make it! :-)
    My wife suggested that I shouldn`t be too critical because all of the espressos that I `ve tried have been better than okay and you should be able to get a free glass of tap water with it. Di Maggio`s may give you some tablet, O`Brien`s a chocolate and Cafe Revive in M&S a little shortbread.
    Salute!

    Glasgow Science Centre

    by vyxxyn Updated Jan 8, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Spanning a large area and being promoted often, this place is really a waste of your time as long as you're above 16 yrs. Few exhibits and large floor area between any 2 exhibits, you end up getting more physical exercise than you do mentally!

    Needless to say, I spent 99% of 2 hrs at just one exhibit, some puzzle pieces where you have to undo knots.

    Unique Suggestions: Bring children.

    Fun Alternatives: Any toy shop.

    Getting into a conversation...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Getting into a conversation about Celtic or Rangers is not considered a good idea, especially in Partick. If asked just say you don't follow football but like Rugby. This is the most neutral of answers and usually defuses any potential for trouble!!(the mention of rugby usually arouses a slumber in football daft Glaswegians) Also watch out for boundary charges when taking taxis. Ask the cabbie for more info, in general the cabbies are pretty honest, this is Glasgow after all!

    Prepare yourself for communication problems at the very beginnig, but Glaswegians will answer your question three times and even take you by the hand and show you to the location you are looking for. Really nice people

    One thing which had disturbed us were the buses going between cities around Glasgow, there are many companies and no time table on the bus stops, so you never know where is these concrete bus going and when are any of them going. Just stay on the bus stop and wait until some of them is comming and better ask where is it going and how much it will cost.

    Loch Ness

    by fluffybunny Written Sep 17, 2002

    Nessie is synonymous with Scotland and a trip down to Loch Ness and for visitors to Scotland this on the 'Must See' List. It's very picturesque though and a nice day out
