Guest Bob Mahelp Posted February 22, 2021 Share Posted February 22, 2021 The way I look at it is that Glasgow almost always is better than people's perception of the city. Great restaurants, the best shopping in the UK outside London, and lots of cracking bars in the city centre that are full of Glaswegians (mostly) having a good time. Edinburgh on the other hand is almost always worse than people's perception. Scenically lovely, but when you scratch the surface you find monstrosities like the St James Centre (thankfully gone), that carbunkle thing that is the Waverley Mall, and shitey, cheap poundshops along what should be one of the world's great thoroughfares, Princes Street. The pubs in the city centre are full of tourists and pished up students, and you often have to searching for a decent boozer. On the edge of all that you've got the stabbing neds that wander in from the schemes looking for somebody to look at them so they can start some bother. Edinburgh's got some brilliant attractions, but Glasgow is a much better and rounded city. And friendlier. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
