Really lovely space to wander around not far from the city centre. Kibble Palace is beautiful and the glass houses have an impressive array of flora! Definitely worth a visit. All entirely free.

The best way is via the underground station from Buchanan Street to Hillhead, and walk a short distance. There may well be a street map at the station.
