Whether it's shopping, eating, drinking or dancing, Glasgow has everything you need for a first-rate day out. Want to discover the city through the eyes of a resident? We asked a few creative Glasgow locals about their favourite things to do.
Heather Palmer is a writer who lives, works and lunches in Glasgow. She is the co-creator of Grave Wax, the SICBA shortlisted supernatural comic exploring death and nationalism, comedy podcast The Second Set and Smithers and Wing, a gothic exploration of Edinburgh, which will be released later this year.
I'm new to Glasgow – what's the first thing I should do when I get there?
Eat, of course! Glasgow is full of great places to pick up a bite I recommend Nippon Kitchen which is a few blocks from the Central Station and Queen Street Station and the food is brilliant.
I love shopping – where should I shop in Glasgow?
Buchanan Street is full of great shops but a hidden gem is Princes Square which is calm and full of interesting shops and great places to eat and drink.
Glasgow's one of the UK's artistic hubs: what's your favourite place to see art, inside or outside?
One of my favourite places to see art is Glasgow School of Art's Degree Shows. It's only a few times a year but it's a brilliant way to see new and interesting art all at once.
