Glasgow City, Scozia, Regno Unito

Glasgow Southside

The Scottish Parliament has a constituency called Glasgow Southside, and you do hear people in the city talking about the Southside, so it clearly exists beyond the imagination of travel guide writers trying to divide Glasgow into manageable chunks. As a matter of geographical fact the area is a sprawling, largely residential stretch of the city with more than a dozen distinct neighbourhoods. Starting on the south bank of the Clyde it ranges from Govan in the west to Richmond Park and Shawfield in the east and penetrates as far south as Shawlands, even to Giffnock (technically not in Glasgow but across the county line in East Renfrewshire). Given this diversity, the Southside isn't so much a single place as a collection of places: extensive, defined by what it isn't –north of the river – and strategically dipped into by visitors heading for standout attractions like the Burrell Collection or the Scottish Football Museum. Where you might wander the streets of the Merchant City or the West End, browsing, looking for a café or shop that catches your eye, you won't necessarily have those opportunities here but the Southside does offer two of the biggest football stadiums in the British Isles – Hampden and Ibrox – as well as parkland, theatre and an interesting selection of bars and eateries dotted around its many streets.

The Burrell Collection

The Glasgow-born shipping magnate and fine art collector Sir William Burrell lived from 1861 to 1958 and amassed an astonishing collection of painting, sculpture and other treasures that he bequeathed to his natal city. It took until 1983 to organise custom-built premises to exhibit the material, in Pollok Country Park, but since then the Burrell Collection has been the Koh-i-Noor in the city's cultural crown.


A fabulously wealthy Scottish shipping merchant and philanthropist with a taste for antiques and fine art, Burrell had a personal gallery that was one of the greatest ever amassed by a single individual. It included many important examples of late medieval art, Chinese and Islamic art, and pieces from ancient civilizations, as well as works by such masters as Rodin, Degas and Cézanne. All of this he donated to his home city, on the condition that they be well looked-after, protected from the environmental hazards of a then smog-ridden Glasgow, and displayed within a building no more than 16 miles outside of the city centre.

It took a long time for his wish to come true, but his treasures have been on public display since The Burrell Collection’s opening in 1983, in an award-winning home that was custom-designed by architects Barry Gasson and Brit Andresen.

And if this permanent exhibit – spanning practically every continent and great civilization in history – is not attraction enough, there are also frequent temporary exhibitions to see. Recent examples have focused on the likes of 19th-century French painter Jean-François Millet, and masters of impressionism such as Degas, Boudin, Fantin-Latour, Manet, Rodin, Cezanne, Pissarro, Renoir, Sisley and Gauguin. If you’re planning a visit it reopens in 2020 – The Burrell Collection was closed in 2016 for a four-year refurbishment, costing £45 million, during which time a 100-strong collection of its finest works will go on tour around the world.


Citizens Theatre

Popularly known as the Citz, this is a theatre with a distinguished pedigree. The building dates to the Victorian era, the resident company was founded in 1943 while its list of directors reads like a Who's Who of Scottish drama. The main auditorium holds over 450 people, there is a studio space for smaller productions, an active community programme and the schedule covers everything from child-friendly shows to stand-up comedy and challenging new plays.


House for an Art Lover

This building, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh as part of a competition for a German deisgn magazine, wasn't actually made flesh til the 1980s (when civil engineer Graham Roxburgh wondered, 'Why not actually build the thing?'). The site was Bellahouston Park, the project took until 1996 to be fully realised but since then it has stood as a paradigmatic example of the Mackintosh aesthetic: too fussy for some, its interior achingly beautiful to others.
Sat in the beautiful grounds and walled garden of bellahouston Park.

This expansive green space is home to aforementioned House for an Art Lover and a Victorian walled garden, as well as large-scale music events from time to time (Calvin Harris and Paolo Nutini are scheduled for August 2015). The rest of the time, it's simply a lush, 169-acre parkland ideal for picnicking, strolling, cycling and a handful of other sporting pursuits.


SCOTLAND ST SCHOOL MUSEUM
Charles Rennie Macintosh.

Going back to school is something that would fill many of us with horror – but don’t let the thought of playgrounds past put you off Scotland Street School Museum. This space is both a fine example of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s architecture, and a fascinating museum, giving insights into the education system in Scotland from the late 19th to the late 20th century (clue: it wasn’t always especially forgiving). Since opening as a museum, it has become a must-visit for Mackintosh fans, and those interested in a taste of living social history. Within walking distance of the apartment as most of these sites are...
