You can start your day with a Scottish breakfast from a wide range of restaurants in the famous George Square which is just a few minutes’ walk away from both the Glasgow Central and Queen Street stations.
If you are visiting for a historical trip and sightseeing, a quick walk from the centre to the Glasgow Cathedral, also known as St. Mungo’s Cathedral, is very much worth it. It is where the tomb of St. Mungo, the founder and patron saint of the City of Glasgow, lies. You may also take a short visit to the neighbouring Museum of Religious Life and Art that exhibits statues, mummies and a Buddhist courtyard. Just across from the museum is a Victorian garden cemetery with gothic-inspired sculptures by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. If you are a fan of artists like Van Gogh or Salvador Dali, then you should not miss the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, which is located near the Partick and Kelvinhall Subway stations.
