Exploring The City of Glasgow, Scotland, UK

Exploring the city of glasgow - Survive Travel

This posts recounts my experiences while exploring the city of Glasgow. Although not the capital, Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland.

This exploring the city of Glasgow post also includes getting to the city of Glasgow, accommodation in Glasgow and other useful information.

Glasgow was my last stop in Scotland before heading off to Belfast, Ireland.

At 1300 I got the bus to Glasgow from Inverness and arrived at around 1600-ish.

I say around because I can’t remember the exact time, but the time it states for bus arrivals timetables, I’ve found, is surprising accurate all around the UK, usually within five minutes and often within three.

Cheap Accommodation in Glasgow, Scotland

From the bus station in Glasgow I took a 10 minute walk to the Eurohostel. I dropped of my stuff then went for a walk around the city of Glasgow. I am of the mind that everywhere has something to offer, but there just didn’t seem to be much going on here.

The Eurohostel in Glasgow is clean and hotel-like with a nice bar, common rooms, etc. There’s wireless internet at the bar. Very well run and excellent security. Free breakfast. As always in the UK, bring your own padlock for the lockers.

Exploring the City of Glasgow

Nightfall hit and there is no much action happening on the streets in the city of Glasgow on a Monday night, although a few people have told me that Glasgow has a good night-life.

I had a Guinness for tea and went to see a movie. I can’t remember what it was called but it had Bruce Willis, Sigourny Weaver and some other unknowns. It had action, decent cast and a hot chick… but was still a very bad movie. I don’t know why, it just was. To top it off, I couldn’t even pull a dirty double (watching two movies on the same ticket) cause it was the last screening.

I just walked around exploring the city of Glasgow in the morning looking at shoes. I decided that Belfast will probably be cheaper so Ill get them there or perhaps Dublin as I’ll have more time.

Next Stop… Belfast
Belfast is a beautiful city with a lot of interesting history.
