Things to do nearby
Glasgow's west end is a beautiful part of the city with a cool Bohemian feel about it. The property is a stones throw away from the beautiful Botanic Gardens and bustling Byres road, where there is an endless array of shops, bars, cinema and restaurants, for all to enjoy. It's a great place to meander around and steeped in history and great places to visit. At the feet of the 16th century Glasgow University and a short 10 min walk through the gorgeous Kelvingrove park, where a number of CW game events will be held, are the must-see Kelvingrove Art Gallerie. Also, within walking distance is the new Music Hydro arena, SECC, Science and Transport Museums and the City centre.
There is an excellent transport service available at the doorstep of our townhouse, that travels all around the city as well as out towards Loch Lommond and other beautiful Scottish locations. We are a 3-5 min walk (in either direction) to one of 2 underground stations that will travel to many of the CW game locations. A return trip costs £2.40. There are also great taxi links, which are relatively cheap in Glasgow. From the underground you can link into one of 3 main stations, where trains and buses arrive and depart around the country and across the UK regularly.
We are a 10 minutes taxi ride from Glasgow airport which costs from £12-20 depending on which taxi company is used. Alternatively there is a regular bus service, costing £5 that travels direct into the city centre in 20 minutes from Glasgow Int Airport. From Preswick Airport, there is a train link that travels directly into the city centre. The city centre is a 10 min drive from the West end or a 6 minute underground ride. A number of trains arrive at Glasgow Central station from London and around the rest of the UK throughout the day. In case of any emergencies there is a local adult hospital 3 minutes drive and a dedicated children's hospital 6 minutes drive away, as well as a general adult and maternity hospital 15 minutes drive through the Clyde tunnel. For those who would like to stay home and cook, there are a number of supermarkets within 3-5 minutes walk, including Waitrose, Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury's as well as local fruit/veg, fish and meat deli's.
