Take a walk through the gardens or the glasshouses on a cold day. Lovely surroundings and not too busy, even on a Sunday morning. It was bitterly cold on the day I went mind you - but the glasshouses were toasty!

We had a lovely Sunday morning walk with family here, even though there was rain - the gardens were indoor and very cosy. We also had a lovely cup of tea and scone at the cafe

The Gardens are very beautiful and walking around the Victorian Green house is worth the walk and sometimes you will see paintings put up in there from young artists

It was raining, so we concentrated on the indoor exhibits, which were really interesting. The desert plants display was especially good.

The best way is via the underground station from Buchanan Street to Hillhead, and walk a short distance. There may well be a street map at the station.
