Beautiful place in every season of the year. Go and visit it in the morning or in autumn/winter to avoid crowds of tourists - just because to fully enjoy this place.

The campus is beautiful with 3 museums and a beautiful chapel. Highly recommend just wandering around, especially around the courtyard. Great architecture.

So many interesting buildings, museums, galleries, including the 'furniture' such as gates, towers, doors and windows! Friendly, chatty and good signposting.

I wish I was going to school here. Beautiful architecture inside and out. A large courtyard in the middle of it. A big tree in the center was featured in one of Harry Potter's movie. I'm sure there are a lot more places to see....More

I have a friend that attends the graduate program there and she took us on a short tour around the campus. Absolutely gorgeous. As stupid as it seems to say I felt like I was at Hogwarts.

Take a short 10 minute walk down the hill to Byres Road or Ashton Lane, which is a more boutique dining experience, and eat there. Just tell the server you want separate checks before you order. Hope this helps Bob
