Visitor Comments on Glasgow Attractions

George Square

George Square is the heart of Glasgow. This beautiful and colorfull square is located in the center of the old town,here is located also the Council Building as you can see on the picture and is a huge open space in the city. Just behind George Square are located Queen Street train Station and also the Buchanan Bus Station. Mostly all main events in the city are in George Square and is one of most visited places in the city. There is an Information Point here aswell,so if you need a map,some accomodation or some excursions brochures this is your place!.

Glasgow Cathedral

I am always caught speachless when I enter a really amazing cathedral and the Glasgow Cathedral is no exception. From its soaring ceilings to its magnificent stained glass windows, this is definately a must see while in Glasgow. Another bonus is that you are allowed to freely take pictures in the cathedral. A massive, beautiful experience!
A lovely cathedral, has lots of little chapels bulit in honour of people who were bishops, priests, ministers etc. It has a lot of history with the tomb of St Mungo who brought Christainity to the Glasgow area. Currently under restoration. Pay a visit to the gift shop for a sovenir. Perfect for someone who loves to study religion and churches.

People's Palace

I have been here several times although last time was two years ago. This is my favourites museum in Glasgow. The museum tells the story of Glasgow in a simple way that will be understood both by children and adults a like. It tells the story from the point of view of ordinary people of Glasgow and tells you about Glasgow in the Past and what it is like today. The peoples palace is situated on Glasgow Green with the winter Gardens attached. The winter Gardens is a large greenhouse type building with lots of different plants. It also has a cafe here but this can be a bit expensive. Entry to Museum and Gardens is free although donations are greatly appreciated.
