"No one should come to Glasgow without going to the Royal Concert Hall."
Royal Concert Hall
No one should come to Glasgow without going to the concert hall. They have a brilliant array of artists playing there - I've seen Alison Moyet and a Glenn Miller tribute band recently. It's a beautiful, modern building known for its amazing acoustics, because it was built especially for live music concerts. It's always worth checking what's on.
Chillies is a fantastic restaurant in the West End of Glasgow. They do amazing Indian food served in tapas-style dishes, so you order several and share. There's so much to choose from and they're just so full of flavour and pretty to look at. I have a real weakness for their food.
City bus tour
I'd recommend jumping on a sightseeing bus at George Square, just five minutes' walk from Glasgow Central. It's amazing how much you can find out about Glasgow's history and culture on a double-decker. The commentary is always fun and it's a great way to get your bearings.
Barça Tapas Restaurant and Cava Bar
If you're after a treat midway through your shopping trip, I'd recommend Barça. They have a good choice of tipples, as well as tasty light bites so you can re-energise before returning to the pavement for more retail therapy.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
This is a lovely art gallery and museum. There's a Salvador Dalí painting of Christ on the cross which is my favourite piece, partly because it was damaged several years ago and they've restored it really beautifully. It's wonderful to see it back on show, and is well worth viewing in person.
