We did Clyde river Cruise yesterday. It was a very long day , came back to my hotel at 12 in night. Our flight was at 8 in evening , so decided to take the day easy. We checked out from our hotel at 10. Our first destination was “city chambers” , however 25th Sept was festival holiday in Glasgow , so it was closed.
Next we walked from there to Glasgow cathedral , built before the Reformation from the late 12th century onwards and serving as the seat of the Bishop and later the Archbishop of Glasgow. Technically, the building is no longer a cathedral, since it has not been the seat of a bishop since 1690. However, like many other pre-Reformation cathedrals in Scotland, it is still a place of active Christian worship.
From cathedral we walked to necropolis , its a Victorian cemetery located on a nearby low hill.
Next from cathedral we left for Kelvingrove art gallery and museum. It has story of flightless birds from Australasia; the incredible pilgrimage of leatherback turtles across the Pacific, the stunning scenery of the Arctic and how wildlife cleverly camouflages itself in that barren wilderness, together with exhibits on El Dorado, the Andes and the important issue of safeguarding our natural habitats to ensure all of this is protected for the future.
We had our lunch at a nearby Indian restaurant , monk fish curry and chilly chicken. Latter we went to our last destination , Glasgow science center. Visiting all the exhibits requires a day, we instead roamed around the river and later went for planetarium show, “discovering night sky” .
Finally we left for airport at 5.30 to catch our flight back to London .
