Fodor's Review

Gorgeous grounds and great views of the city are among the many reasons to visit this university. The Gilbert Scott Building, the university's main edifice, was built more than a century ago and is a lovely example of the Gothic Revival style. Glasgow University Visitor Centre, near the main gate on University Avenue, has exhibits on the university, a small coffee bar, and a gift shop; it's the starting point for one-hour guided walking tours of the campus. A self-guided

tour starts at the visitor center and takes in the east and west quadrangles, the cloisters, Professor's Square, Pearce Lodge, and the not-to-be-missed University Chapel.

Go to the top of the class

Beautiful campus. Was there at graduation time and saw the magnificent clositers and tower. Superb free art gallery and museum - nearly 600 years of history. No wonder it is regarded as one of the top universities in Europe!
