Disadvantages: not enough houses
I am shocked to be the first person to write a review on Motherwell, Lanarkshire.
Motherwell is a 25min train ride from Glasgow.
I have lived here all my life and i will admit it isnt the best place in the UK to live, however it is by no means the worse. Motherwell like most towns is made up of different areas and different schemes. There are various groups called Young Teams who live in most areas but not something i
take anything to do with!
The last i heard Motherwell had over 10000 inhabitants. Motherwell comes under North Lanarkshire Council who seem to have different rules and regulations from every other council in Scotland!
The main shopping area in Motherwell is overdue a revamp and plans were suppose to be in place to put it all undercover but never materialised. The main supermarket is Asda but we have a Farmfoods, Iceland and a Lidl near and within the main shopping area.
The shops are ok but i wouldnt say a brilliant selection compared to nearby towns.
Motherwell is also home to Motherwell Football Club situated in Fir Park stadium which is a short walk from my home though i have yet to be in it!
There is quite a few hotels in Motherwell including The Old Mill Hotel, Moorings & the Bentley. Motherwell is on the main train route for Glasgow, Edinburgh, London & Newcastle.
Motherwell is also home to Scotlands largest theme park M&Ds and Strathyclyde Park which has a large lake and sport centre offering various water sports. There is also a state of the art gym & swimming pool in Motherwell.
There are several cafes to choose from and the a McDonalds however i do recommend a few restaurants if you ever happen to be in Motherwell.
Hup Lee - opened in 2009 this is a chinese all you can eat buffet with lunch 7.95 and dinner 12.45 and they offer very good service
Weatherspoons - excellent bar & restaurant
The Mandarin - another great chinese set restaurant.
As for nightlife, just outside the town centre there is a large nightclub called MegaBar with Hype upstairs. Been once but its not my sort of thing. There is also a bar called Starka and various pubs that are usually overcrowded with old men!
Motherwell is home to Gala Bingo!
In August 2009, Motherwell College opened doors to their new £70 million college but it hasnt been very well thought out but still offers excellent courses. It is built on the former Ravenscraig site on the outskirts of Motherwell. There will be various developements here as it is becoming a new town.
If you ever visit Mothewell pop buy for a cuppa
Summary: ok place to live
