The Hidden Lane in trendy Finnieston offers independent shopping and a quaint tearoom, with pretty multi-coloured frontages. In the city centre near Buchanan Street, keep an eye out for fluorescent lighting and head for Mitchell Lane.

With over 90 parks and gardens, it is no wonder that Glasgow is known as the ‘Dear Green Place’. Why not take some time out to explore some of the stunning greenery within walking distance from the hotel.

Glasgow Green

A stone’s throw away from the city centre is the historic Glasgow Green. In the city’s oldest park, you’ll find the spectacular Doulton Fountain, the largest terracotta fountain in the world, and the beautiful McLennan Arch. Also set within this expansive park is the People’s Palace, a museum that is dedicated to the social history of Glasgow and its people

Botanic Gardens

Not far from Byres Road, the Botanic Gardens offer a tranquil blend of green space and woodland walks. The Gardens are also home to two glasshouses, one of these being the beautiful Kibble Palace, which houses plants from all around the world and marble statues. There are self-guided trails to enjoy, including a tree trail and a river walk.

Kelvingrove Park

Kelvingrove Park is a classic example of a Victorian park, set on the banks of the River Kelvin. Two of the city’s most magnificent buildings stand proudly at either side of the park, Kelvingrove Art.
