When visiting Glasgow Green, this is one of the many things to see. You can't get into the factory, but it is the front facade that faces the People's Palace that is the highlight. Based on the Doge's Palace in Venice it certainly doesn't look like your average factory.

At the height of summer this part of Glasgow can be busy so imagine what the restaurant is like, it can be busy but the staff are friendly and patient

Well, not exactly the most beautiful attraction in Glasgow but I have to admit that from the outside is a beautiful building and frankly its style and its colors make it quite interesting, it is certain that walking through the park is very easy to see it and frankly in front of it you can't refuse to get some pics.

the building has lots of history, it was hard to find any information as we walked round the surrounding area.

I have been in the building when it was Templeton Carpets, then when it changed over to offices. It's the beautiful workmanship on the outside which is amazing. The design was based on the Doge's Palace Venice, and carpets for the Taj Mahal and The Whitehouse were produced here.
