LET’S MOVE TO: Glasgow’s West End
The west end of Glasgow covers a huge, bustling area centred around Great Western Road and Byres Road and is variously described as everything from cosmopolitan and trendy to leafy and bohemian. Bustling, busy, cultured and steeped in history, it has great transport links to the rest of the city and beyond. Just about everything you could wish for, whether you are into café culture, fine dining, artistic pursuits, fantastic theatre, music, parks or shopping. It’s the home of Glasgow University and the Òran Mór’s groundbreaking lunchtime theatre programme, A Play, a Pie and a Pint (oran-mor.co.uk), is one of the best things about the west end – new writers, established stalwarts, great actors and fantastic new voices all combine in a series of plays commissioned by the venue each year. David Wilson Homes and Savills are marketing the next phase of contemporary apartments The Botanics, set within the former grounds of the BBC.
