Best areas to live in Glasgow

Whether you’re looking for leafy suburbs, a commuter’s paradise with excellent transport links, or a bustling community, rest assured you’ll find the perfect place in Glasgow.

Hillhead

An affluent area in Glasgow’s fashionable West End, Hillhead not only boasts a variety of independent cafes and coffee shops, plenty of pubs and bars, and a ton of kooky boutiques and delis, but it also has the Glasgow Botanic Gardens and the banks of the River Kelvin on its doorstep. Also a stone’s throw from the University of Glasgow campus, Hillhead really is right at the heart of the action, and is one of the trendiest places to set up home in the city. It does, however, come with the price tag to match, with average property prices at £367,840.

Shawlands

Located approximately five miles south-west of Glasgow city centre, Shawlands is close enough that residents never miss out on the culture and buzz that Glasgow has to offer, but far enough away that properties are relatively affordable, with prices averaging £189,065. The area’s features, including historic buildings with plenty of character, amenities including shops and takeaway restaurants, and above all, lots of green space, continue to draw people to Shawlands. With Pollok Country Park, King George V Park and Queen’s Park nearby, residents are spoiled for choice when it comes to enjoying a bit of peace and quiet.

Bearsden

An affluent town roughly six miles north-west of central Glasgow, average house prices in Bearsden are around £341,925. A residential area boasting two high-performing secondary schools and lots of historical character (the ruins of a military bath house stand in the town centre, and a Roman wall runs through it) make Bearsden popular among families and retirees, while its proximity to Glasgow and good transport links appeal to commuters working or studying in the city.

Giffnock

A town nine miles south-west of Glasgow with great transport links, including bus services, train services and the A77, Giffnock is popular among commuters. Average property prices in the town stand at £333,881, and residents enjoy proximity to Eastwood Park and multiple playing fields, as well as local schools, restaurants and sports clubs.

Scotstoun

Located 4.6 miles west of Glasgow city centre, Scotstoun is a suburb bounded by the River Clyde and packed with late Victorian period properties. As one of the most affordable areas in Glasgow, property prices in Scotstoun average at £160,624. It is popular among commuters working or studying in Glasgow, and it also appeals to families, who can make the most of suburban living, homes with gardens, good primary schools and low-cost housing.

Things to do in Glasgow

Catch some live music at Mono

Located in King’s Court in Glasgow’s Merchant City, Mono is a one-stop shop for live music, home cooked vegan grub, and cheap pints. Mono is, without a doubt, the place to go for full immersion in Glasgow’s vibrant music and arts scene, and its community vibe and disabled access mean that all are welcome. Hosting rising artists such as Crack Cloud, Porridge Radio, and Yard Act, this music venue puts on some of the best affordable gigs that Glasgow has to offer.

Visit Glasgow Botanic Gardens

North-west of Glasgow city centre, on the banks of the River Kelvin, sits Glasgow Botanic Gardens. With a whopping 27 acres of park, a cast-iron Victorian glasshouse, a herb garden and loads of tropical and temperate plants, Glasgow Botanic Gardens is a full day out for all the family. As if that isn’t enough, entry is free!

Get cultured at the Gallery of Modern Art and Street Level Photoworks

Situated in the city centre, between Glasgow Queen Street and Glasgow Central train stations, the Gallery of Modern Art hosts temporary exhibitions, a permanent collection and a jam-packed calendar of events, including artist talks. It is a must-visit spot if contemporary art is your bag. If local and international photography is more up your street, try hitting Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow’s Merchant City district.

Watch a film at Glasgow Film Theatre

Glasgow Film Theatre is an independent art deco cinema just a stone’s throw from The Glasgow School of Art, and its catalogue of independent, international, and documentary films draws in an eclectic and cultured crowd. The theatre also hosts the Glasgow Film Festival each year, with a packed programme of special events and feature film screenings for movie buffs to enjoy.

Stroll around Pollok Country Park

If natural beauty and the great outdoors are your escape, then Glasgow’s 146-hectare Pollok Country Park, with its charming gardens and woodlands, should be top of your list of places to visit. While its multiple mountain bike circuits are great for cyclists, the whole family can enjoy walking trails and picnic spots. Located just three miles from central Glasgow, Pollok Country Park is easily accessible via train and road.
