The West End is extensive, and great to wander around if you have a few hours to spare. There are lots of lovely statues and coffee shops tucked away, and some great walks and restaurants too.

A must visit if ever in Glasgow. Stunning Neo-Gothic university buildings, magnificent parks and gardens, museums, churches, multi-cultural cafes and restaurants, trendy bars and classic shops abound. Strolling around the area is a real pleasure and my wife and I can’t wait to return.

Great place for a wander and to soak in the impressive architecture and get some peace and quiet. Our hosts reckoned this area had an equivalence with London's Mayfair in many ways.

The term "West End" may be larger or smaller than your map shows as withihn the broad designation there are sub-neighborhoods.

I'd definitely recommend getting the underground to the botanical gardens as parking can be tricky. Some side streets do have parking available, but the availability can be a bit hit or a miss!

The Oran Mor at the top of Byres Road is probably your best bet.
