After reading through some of the insider pages I'm hoping some of the seasoned regulars to the forum can help me find something to do other than getting dragged up and down Argyle and Buchanan street lugging Primark bags behind me.
Here's the thing. I worked for a Glasgow company. You can smell the product on a windy day coming from the Gorbals direction. I never, though, ventured far outside of the Premier Inn. Pretty much a loner. (Few drinks in the Social on a Wednesday listening to the one man band)
I managed to book a cheapo flight into Prestwick so will have 2.5 days in Glasgow with the missus.
I need to know the following:
(1) Trains. Seriously, do you just show the conductor/ticket man your boarding pass on board and get 50% off travel to and from the airport? I always arrived into Glasgow International and just hopped on the bus you see, never been to Prestwick.
(2) I'm staying in the Grand Central Hotel so directions are truly not needed from the train station. LOL
(3) I need 2 evening restaurant suggestions for a middle of the road budget. Chinese suggestion would be good. I ate once in Dhabba on Candleriggs but I think its a bit hot for the missus.
Wagammama will do during the day one of the days and we will figure something else out for lunch. Enough choice during the day.
(4) I'm looking for some class of a Bierhaus. I drank in West but that's too far to walk and wasn't great anyway for the distance you have to go.
Any suggestions for something to do during the day? Something to visit. Not museums or art galleries. Something cool.
BTW, Regular Glasgow visitor websites are not great are they?
