Glasgow neighborhoods

Glasgow Centre

On the north bank of the River Clyde, Glasgow's city center begins in George Square. The square and its surrounding tourist attractions and hotels are easily accessed by trains coming into nearby Queen Street Station. The other main train station in Glasgow's central neighborhood is located due south of George Square off of Argyle Street. The Buchanan bus station is located just a few minutes walk north of Queen Street Station.

Other Centre attractions include Glasgow's cathedral, the Necropolis and the St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art.

These hotels are located south of the River Clyde, but are still within walking distance of many of Glasgow’s well-known sights. Area attractions include the Glasgow Science Center, Scotland Street School Museum and Pollok Country Park. Also worth a visit, the expansive Burrell Collection invites travelers into a modern building filled with objects of Glasgow's history and art from around the world.

The West End

The West End, as it's so named, sits just west of Glasgow's city center and is on the banks for the Kelvin River. Here, tourists can find the University of Glasgow, the Botanic Gardens as well as the Hunterian Art Gallery.

Nearby, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is considered the top local attraction in Glasgow and in years past has even surpassed the popularity of other Scottish sights like Edinburgh Castle. At the gallery and museum you'll find an extensive collection of civic art housed in a palatial Spanish Baroque-style building. Kelvingrove Park is also worth a visit.
