Glasgow by Subway

One of the cheapest and quickest ways to get around Glasgow is most definitely the underground. Glasgow’s circular subway route is as easy as it gets to get around town. Just choose a direction (clockwise or anti-clockwise) and you will be on your way to a whole host of stops packed with lots to do. The ease of use, and the variety of places to eat and drink on the route have given birth to the now famous “sub crawl” instead of the usual pub crawl term.

There is a designated route and list of pubs to visit and have one drink then leave to work your way round the whole subway and is a great way to see the city. The Ambassador is a short walk from Hillhead Station on the route so a perfect place to start your very own subcrawl! Here are some of the main stations and things to look out for if using the subway.

St Enoch
Centre At the southern edge of the city centre you’ll find St Enoch Station. Alight here to find a shopping centre packed with all the latest trends, or currently the Christmas markets.

Cowcaddens
Artist Rogue-one has certainly managed to brighten up one of the less picturesque stations on the underground route. Cowcaddens is ideally situated to visit gems such as singl-end bakehouse and the tenement House. The station has had a makeover with an entirely unexpected mural adorning its formerly grey walls. We won’t give away too much but urge you to visit.

Bridge street
Stepping out from this station it’s easy to assume there’s not alot going on in the local area, but how wrong you would be! Just steps away from the platform you’ll find Lotus Vegetarian Cuisine, a cult Chinese restaurant offering vegan and vegetarian options. Plus the Citizens Theatre is a mere five minute walk and has a program bursting with classics and contemporary Scottish work and more.

Kelvinbridge
This station is right in the heart of the west end- half way along great Western Road and five minutes from byres Road. Its surrounded by some of the best shops, cafes and restaurants in Glasgow.

Kelvinhall
Sitting amidst the hubbub of Patrick’s main thoroughfare, you won’t have to walk far to find yourself at Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery.

With its fascinating collections and enticing events program. Take a wander through Kelvingrove Park to fully immerse yourself in what was voted Glasgow’s favourite – you won’t regret it even in the winter weather!
