Hello, glasgow

Glasgow is the 21st-century magnet of Great Britain, with an energetic, yet sophisticated vibe. Formerly Britain's major centre of industrial prowess, it has been rapidly transforming into a booming hub for art and culture in the past decades and prides itself on a never-ending stream of up-and-coming musicians and a thriving nightlife. Glasgow is also home to many excellent modern Scottish restaurants dedicated to preserving their Scottish heritage, and some of the best shopping in the country.

Barras Market

Don’t miss the Barras, a vintage flea market in the East End. The atmosphere, people watching and hearing the city’s own working-class slang - the Patter - make a visit worthwhile. On the way to the market, pop into G1 Interiors, a contemporary Scottish interior design store in desolate Trongate.

My Home Bakery

A line is always forming at the door of My Home Bakery, a West End establishment whose beautiful displays draw many a customer inside, only to uncover an even wider array of freshly baked cakes and pastries. There is a small seating area, but one would have to be in much luck to find free spots.
