Saturday Snapshot: A View of Glasgow

A couple of years ago we went to the Glasgow Science Centre on the banks of the River Clyde .

There is so much to see and do in the Centre, not least the Planetarium which dominates the scene as you approach the entrance.

You can go up to the roof, where the view is excellent:

The armadillo shaped building on the north bank of the Clyde is the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, where, amongst other events, they hold hold auditions for X-Factor.

The Planetarium is fascinating – I wished it was possible to take photos inside, but of course I couldn’t. It was enough, though, to sit back and gaze upon the night sky and have constellations and planets pointed out to me.

  1. I love museums, and this one looks grand. Plus, I’ve always wanted to go to a planetarium, and have yet to do so. It’s on my “Things To Do Before The Lights Go Out” List.

  2. All I remember about Glasgow is being lost while trying to drive through to Edinburgh. We absolutely must go back to see what we missed; next time hopefully we won’t get lost.
