I've lived in the west end of Glasgow for most of
my life, having moved away to attend University. Before
that I lived in Glasgow, another very vibrant city,
with some of the most friendly people in the world.
Glasgow's a great city...with a diversity of shops,
bars, restaurants and parks, with great choice in
walking distance. Glasgow has continued to develop
beyond all recognition since it won the City of Culture.
As elsewhere in Scotland there has been a housing
boom, with huge wave of property redevelopment, and
house prices rising by over 30% in the last year.
The best times to be here are during the Celtic
Connections Music Festival in January and
after Christmas for Hogmanay and
the start of the New Year. Both are world famous,
attract people from all over the world and help to
dramatcially swell the numbers of people living in
If you're visiting Glasgow there a few things you
must not miss. These include People's Palace, Science
Centre and the Burrell Collection.
Have a great time when you visit.
