“Commonwealth Games 2014”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

I liked all the side stalls and the variety of items you could buy from Greek Food to Italian Bread, - Items which are not available in shops.
Also the live entertainment on stage was very good

Moving about was excellent as all the roads were closed to traffic

A cool location to wander around and check out the many great market stands, places to eat at any end of the scale and shopping equally the same.

“Such impressive buildings”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Truly reflects that Glasgow was the second city of the empire and the major commercial/industrial capitol. Do go inside as mant of the buildings as possible. Such grandeur, style and art on display in buildings that were formerly Banks Insurance HQs and homes of Victirian magnates all now Bars, restaurants and even a bookies (betting shop).
Fabulous local restaurants and a plethora of interesting pubs.
