University of GlasgowExplore Glasgow’s grand quarter
Situated at the top of the city on Gilmore Hill, a walk to the University of Glasgow will provide good views across Scotland’s biggest city.
The university itself is a grand affair, with a chapel to explore; and if your timing is right you might even hear the choir practicing.
Founded in 1451, with exam halls dating back to 1879 it’s a spectacular exemplar of Glaswegian architecture.
The small Hunterian museum and art gallery situated within the university is a bonus, with a lot of historical artefacts from the Roman ages on display.
With the nearby Mackintosh house, as well as grand Georgian buildings, it’s a beautiful corner of the city to explore during your stay.
