GLASGOW’S WEST END
Glasgow’s West End is the bohemian and cultural epicenter of the city, popular with locals and tourists alike. The West End is home to the University of Glasgow and the majority of students who live in the city, adding to the area’s laid back vibe. The main street is Byres Road, just 2 miles from the city centre and easily accessible on foot, by subway or bus from the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow. This street and the surrounding area are bustling with cafes, restaurants and shops that you can happily spend hours browsing in. Particularly popular are the cobbled streets Ashton Lane and Cresswell Lane, which run parallel to Byres Road and are home to small bars and independent shops. The beautiful Victorian terraced buildings in this area are typical to Glasgow.
