I did not grow up in the city of Glasgow I moved here from the Isle of Skye eleven years ago when I was 17, having said that I have lived in all sides of this fair City. At the moment however, we are staying in the East End. All sides of the city have their own uniqueness but I would say the East End is the most traditionally ‘Glaswegian’ part of the city – there is no show and fuss to this area. Whereas you might go to the Westend for the pubs, the City Centre for the clubs and the Southside to eat what might you come to the Eastend for? Well you might come to visit the Forge Market which is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and is probably the biggest rival to the famous Glasgow Barras. Glasgow Zoo is also located in the Eastend and although it is not in the same scale as Edinburgh zoo it is well worth a visit with the family. Some the oldest parts of the City are located in the Eastend and it is where you will find the friendliest people (reputedly) and the most traditional pubs (enter if you dare!) there are no trendy theme pubs in this quarter of the City.
