PHOTO DIARY: Glasgow, May 2015

We spent three wonderful days in Glasgow exploring the many delights of the city. On our first day we ventured west to check out the university, the surrounding museums and lots of Mackintosh sights. On our second day we headed east and checked out some music destinations, more museums and even more Mackintosh stuff. That evening we saw Belle and Sebastian at the SSE Hydro (the reason for our trip). On our final day we stuck to the city centre and checked a few more things off our list. Unfortunately we didn't have time to see the south of the city which means we'll have to come back another time, soon I hope.

I'm going to do a proper city guide but for now here's a photo diary of most things we go up to over the three days.

Day 1:

We stayed at citizenM - really fun (review here)

Dali - Christ of St John of the Cross

Dufy - The Jetties of Trouville-Deauville

Monet - Vetetheuil

James Guthrie - A Funeral Service in the Highlands

William Kennedy - Stirling Station

EA Hornel - The Coming of Spring

University of Glasgow and the Hunterian Museum

Lunch at Ox and Finch - excellent (review here)

Drinks at Broadcast

Late night drinks at Nice N Sleazy

Dinner at The Anchor Line - it was nothing special

Day 2:

Lunch at Trans Europe Cafe - really good

Merchant City

Monorail Music - lovely shop but very overpriced vinyl

The famous Barrowland Ballroom - I'm sad we didn't get to see a gig here

Glasgow Cathedral

The Necropolis

Bread Meats Bread burger - just OK (review here)

Dinner at Ubquitous Chip - amazing (review here)

Belle and Sebastian at SSE Hydro

Day 3:

Breakfast at Willows Tea Rooms - just OK

Centre for Contemporary Arts - great gift shop

Glasgow School of Art - amazing Mackintosh tour and gift shop

late lunch / early dinner at Butcher Shop and Grill - very nice

Quite a lot of photos and not a lot of explanation here but I'm going to go into more depth in my city guide plus I want to do a few more restaurant review. Anyway, as you can see Glasgow is a beautiful city with lots of interesting architecture, great food and nice shops. We got loads done in three days but there's still plenty more for us to explore next time. I loved Glasgow so much and as long weekends go it's a brilliant place to visit.
