24 hours in Glasgow

 
Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and with its ever-evolving food and drink scene, beautiful gardens, art galleries and historic buildings you’ll have plenty to explore. However if you’re visit is short, here are three things that i’d put at the top of your bucket list. Best of all, they’re all free!

The Botanic Gardens, located in the West End massively exceeded my expectations. You’ll discover so many interesting plants that you could easily lose a few hours wandering around.

Glasgow Botanic Gardens

There are several glasshouses within the gardens, the most notable being the Kibble Palace which is a 19th-century wrought iron framed glasshouse. Inside the main plant group is a collection of New Zealand and Australian tree ferns, some of which have lived there for 120 years. The rest of the building contains a collection of orchids and carnivorous plants.

Glasgow’s street art is jaw dropping. As you wander around the city you cannot miss these unique murals that adorn the city’s brickwork. They add a splash of colour and intrigue to the city. It’s really nice to see that Glasgow’s embracing these works of art into their culture and supporting local artists. Here are a few of my favourites.

Glasgow University

Why not stroll through the grounds of the University of Glasgow, which is the fourth-oldest university in the English-speaking world, founded in 1451. Its Neo-Gothic style is rumoured to be the inspiration for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts.

Make sure that you visit the University’s iconic Cloisters. Not only are they beautiful but they’ve also featured in TV and films including Cloud Atlas and Outlander.
