No visit to Glasgow would be complete without a trip ‘doon the watter’ (‘down the water’ in the Glasgow dialect). The Riverlink ferry service sails down the Clyde to the Braehead shopping centre where you’ll find the usual high street stores. Pick up points are the Broomielaw pontoon in the city centre or Pacific Quay, outside the BBC Scotland building.
It’s worthwhile taking the journey if only to see the shipyards still in action, the Tall Ship (check the Tall Ship article) and the fantastic new Museum of Transport designed by architect Zaha Hadid.
Riverlink also runs sightseeing tours on the river, details of which are available on the website.
