The park is one of Glasgow's many beautiful green spaces and is home to the Burrell Collection gallery and museum. Both are free to attend. Visitors to Scotland often talk about visiting Edinburgh but sometimes overlook Glasgow. I'd say Glasgow's parks are miles ahead of most other UK cities and are not to be missed. Glasgow also has some wonderful architecture and is packed with cultural events. I don't work for the tourist board but I'd recommend my city for a holiday! Pollok Country Park was originally part of a large family estate and settlements there date back centuries. It's a gorgeous park with lots of walking and biking paths and a children's play park. In less than half an hour you can go from the bustling city centre to this...
The Burrell Collection contains all kinds of art and historical objects. There are pieces by Rodin, Cezanne and Degas and the famous Warwick Vase. I love the building as much as the art because it has lots of wooden beams and stained glass inside and tall windows facing the woodland.
Currently in the People's Palace there is an exhibition on about the iconic Glasgow Red Road Flats which are in the process of being demolished and were previously home to thousands of people.
Around 50,000 individuals have been buried in the Victorian cemetery which sits on a high hill in the East of Glasgow. There are many ornate memorial sites here and it gives an excellent vantage point to view the city from. Visiting such a place could seem spooky or morbid but death is a part of life and visiting any grave site is a good way to gather perspective and remind yourself to be a little kinder. I like spooky stuff but I did not see any... except for this angel holding a flower... don't blink!
