I loved this old and very large building both inside and out. It appears no expense was spared in the original design and specification. There is a magnificent organ at one end of the big hall just past the front entrance which is used for...More

The park was crowded when we went, due to a multi-cultural festival. The ambiance was festive, but it was crowded. Otherwise, lots of great architectural pieces to view, and a great view of the university in some spots.

Beautiful park that the Glasgow residents seem to keep litter free, unlike some of the parks in Aldershot, where I live. Stumbled on the Bandstand and saw The Berrie Big Band playing a free Sunday afternoon concert. Excellent!

Beautiful park just outside Glasgow Centre. By bus or on foot, Highly recommended when visiting Glasgow. Beautiful trees, herbaceous beds and great playfields for kids and youth to play and hang out. Just take something to Estland drink and enjoy!

Visited during the Mela. Enjoyed the greenery and the cleanliness. It was heatwave in UK, this June, so the park was an ideal place to just soak in the sun and enjoy the greenery

Visited last month twice, lots of things to do and there are benches for BBQ if you are into BBQ. There is also Kelvingrove Art Gallery not too far from there

We bought weekend tickets for this fantastic event at a great venue. Acts were fantastic and the weather was superb. Definitely a little busy on the Saturday meaning that the facilities were overstretched with queues to bars, toilets and food being too long though I...More

Lots of families out riding their scooters, passing the ball around, playing in the park and skatepark, and just enjoying the sun. This is the really beautiful, leafy part of the city. It's gorgeous. A nice way to be close to the Kelvin River and...More

Got to here on the open top sight seeing bus.This is a splendid park with plenty to see and do. It was probably made better because when we were there it was a glorious sunny day.

I was impressed by the exhibition building. I liked the science and art museum, the choir who were singing when we entered and the good coffee.
