How to spend 3 days in Glasgow?
Public transport is plentiful and cheap but be prepared for those feet to do some serious walking, too! The city centre is the area where most visitors will start, and the most notable elements are the grid plan of streets and the lavish Victorian and Edwardian buildings and civic squares which give the area much of its character. The main arteries of the City Centre are Argyle Street, Sauchiehall Street and Buchanan Street known as the main shopping streets.
