center of George Square in 1837, which is the oldest memorial to Scottish author Sir Walter Scott. George Square is home to many of Glasgow's public statues, including the only known equestrian statues of a young Queen Victoria and her consort Prince Albert. After an educational day viewing historic buildings and monuments, enjoy a pint at Wetherspoon restaurant and bar, housed in the former home of the Bank of Scotland.

Big square with statues in it, what's not to like, good place to people watch or protest against the government if that's what you are into. There is usually a skating rink here and various vendors at Christmas time.

I started the red bus tour from George square which is central. Great spot to stop, enjoy the view or even sit a while and read a good book.

One of the busiest spots in Glasgow. Plenty to see and do in this area with a variety of tasty restaurants just a quick walk away. I would highly recommend getting a hop on/hop off bus ticket while you're here as this is the first (and main) stop of the line.

The heart of the city centre, this is one of the few green spaces to catch some sun and watch people go by without walking out to one of the larger parks outside the city centre. Home to the impressive City Chambers (which offers free tours) and other architectural gems (and misfires) there are plenty of bars and cafes nearby if the weather should turn.
