Here are our picks for the prettiest and coolest streets in Glasgow:

Great Western Road

Perhaps one of the more obvious items on this list, Great Western Road is a popular street for a reason.

One of the main thoroughfares of the West End, the street is home to hundreds of independent cafes, unique pubs like The Bull and eateries like Charcoal Aroma which serves Indian food.

The street is also iconic for its abundance of sandstone tenements, the nearby Botanic Gardens and church spires like the one at St Mary's which reach up into the city's skyline.

Ashton Lane

A West End spot tucked away between Byres Road and University Avenue, Ashton Lane is popular with students and the wider city thanks to its many cocktail bars (like Vodka Wodka) and its pubs housed in old Victorian stables.

The cobbled lanes and quaintness of the spot along with its many public houses, make it ideal for a quick stroll.

Victoria Road

Located in the Southside of the city near Queen's Park, Victoria Road is close to a number of independent pubs like The Bell Jar and has plenty of charity shops perfect for those who like to have a browse while out and about.

Much like other streets on this list, the road is defined by its prevalence of sandstone tenements which make it both pretty and unmistakably Glaswegian.

Hidden Lane

The Hidden Lane just off Argyll Street in Finnieston is a Bohemian haven popular with artists, designers and lovers of all things retro.

While it does have a rustic look, the lane is a popular haunt for musical artists like Honeygri who has recorded at Crickey Studio.

Bain Street

Bain Street in the East End lies just off the more travelled Gallowgate and is home to popular live music venue St Luke's as well as the resurgent Barras.

As well as stunning bricked buildings and pubs like The Winged Ox next to St Luke's, the road ends at Glasgow Green, making it ideal for those fancying a stroll around the park.

Park Circus

For something quieter on your leisurely stroll through the city, try Park Circus which is known for its grand townhouses built in the 19th Century.

At the centre of the residential spot is a well-maintained garden, bringing a bit of nature to Glasgow's concrete and mortal surroundings.

The neighbouring area is also home to large towering buildings as well as one of the prettiest spots in Glasgow - Kelvingrove Park.

Castle Street

For those wanting to explore some of the city's heritage, visit Castle Street where Glasgow Cathedral is located as well as the oldest surviving house in the city, which was built in 1471.

Located a five-minute walk from the Necropolis, you can enjoy stunning views of the city if you're brave enough to trek the hill.
