So you have a day spare and you are dying to read that new book you’ve been waiting months to be released. You are bored of sitting in the house so what do you do? Glasgow is a bustling city and you assume there isn’t many quiet spots, right? Well grab a cuppa and a biscuit and let me enlighten you to the wonders of Glasgow’s hidden quiet gems. You are in for a treat.
A lovely quiet bar area to read in that serves beautiful and rich German inspired beers. It’s got a lovely atmosphere and the staff are friendly and very accomodating.
Ashton Lane really is a magical little lane away from the bustling streets of Glasgow. It’s full of quant little bars and restaurants with outdoor seating areas which makes it an ideal location for sneaking away to do some reading. You are surrounded by the cobbles and the fairylights above you. I love Ashton Lane.
Glasgow University Cloisters
The Cloisters really are a win for british architecture. Sitting down to read here really puts it into perspective the beauty that surrounds us even in a city as big as Glasgow.
I love going to the top of the Necropolis and looking out towards the city that is Glasgow. The best time is Dusk or Sunrise. I know what you’re thinking – She likes to read in a graveyard? Yup some of my best reading has been done there, so quiet and peaceful and for a horror book it really does give the best atmosphere.
