Being located so centrally will mean that visiting the major tourist attractions and other places of interest is quick and straightforward. For a touch of Scottish culture and history, visit The Riverside Museum, sat on the site of an old shipyard. The building that houses the fascinating museum was designed by celebrated architect Zaha Hadid, and provides an in-depth look into the evolution of transport and travel in Scotland over the years. The moored Tall Ship next door to the building is a beautiful example of 19th century transportation, and is a particularly popular feature with children.
Glasgow may not be the first place you think of when someone says “curry”, but the city takes this originally Indian dish very seriously and there a number of restaurants that do it spectacularly well. If you’re only in the mood for a light meal, in tapas-style portions, head over to Mother India’s Café on Argyle Street, or for a taste of the traditional curries done super-healthily, try Balbir’s. House of Shah restaurant is not for the faint-hearted, as it serves up the notorious Buckfast Korma – combining the popular tonic wine with everyone’s favourite curry – don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tied it!
Fashionistas and shopaholics will be in heaven in the city centre, where rows upon rows of high-end designer boutiques, department stores and vintage shops line the streets. Take this rare opportunity to browse the expertly curated and reasonably-priced vintage stores where you’re bound to find some hidden treasures. For the largest collection of clothes and decades of style covered, check out Saratonga Trunk, and for a high chance to come across some vintage Chanel, pop into Vintage Guru. Happy shopping!
