Glasgow and Its Museums - Day One

Sunday, January 14, 2018
Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom
We started the day with a breakfast in Windows restaurant.  It was supposed to be a la carte, but unfortunately they had an issue with gas in the kitchen, so breakfast was changed to a buffet.
After breakfast we walked around the corner and caught one of Glasgow’s Hop On Hop Off buses.  We purchased a two day ticket for only £1 more than a single day, which was great value.
We visited Provand’s Lordship, which is a medieval house and the second oldest building in Glasgow.  The Cathedral is the oldest, which was our next visit, but being a Sunday there were services on so we didn’t go inside.
We picked up the next bus and headed to the People’s Palace and Winter Garden.  The People’s Palace is a museum telling the story of Glasgow and was quite interesting.  The Winter Garden was lovely on a winter’s day.
We were after a Sunday roast so headed to Waxy O’Connor’s next door to our hotel.  This ended up being quite unfortunate as it was not a very enjoyable meal.  The barman decided that it looked so bad he didn’t charge us!
The afternoon was spent back on the HOHO bus visiting the Riverside Museum.  This museum is all about transport and was quite interesting.  We also enjoyed the travel by HOHO bus, showing us lots of Glasgow.
We then returned to our hotel for a glass of wine in the lounge before dinner at Amarone’s where I ate lamb cutlets and G had Cotoletta,  We finished with Crème Brulee and an Affogato.
