The tower at the Glasgow Science Centre

After our experience on The London Eye, I’m guessing it’ll come as no surprise to anyone to learn that, no, we absolutely did NOT go up the tower at the Glasgow Science Centre. Nuh-uh. (It’ll be even less of a surprise to those of you who know the Tower has a bit of a history of breaking down, going on fire, that kind of thing. Who wants to be stuck at the top of a scary old tower, with no way down? Not this girl. I mean, who am I, Rapunzel?)

Actually, I may as well ‘fess up: not only did we not ascend the tower (Look, there was a REALLY tiny lift, that went up the outside of the building. And just standing next to it was giving us both vertigo, and it’s not like we’d just have gotten over that once we reached the top, you know? As I said in the comments of my London Eye post, it’s good to face your fears, but sometimes it’s also good to know your limits. And stick to them.), we didn’t go into the Glasgow Science Centre, either. Because apparently we suck at this stuff: we go to Canterbury but don’t see the cathedral, we go to the Glasgow Science Centre and don’t do anything even REMOTELY “science-y”… For my next trick, I need to find somewhere else I can go and not actually see. Suggestions on a postcard, please…

In our defense, as with the Canterbury trip, we weren’t in Glasgow for long that day, and while we didn’t have time to see the inside of the Science Centre, the outside is pretty impressive on its own, and a nice location for a quick stroll in the sun. This area, right next to the river Clyde, used to be the centre of Glasgow’s shipbuilding past, but now the landscape is much more modern,  with lots of shiny glass and strangely shaped buildings. And one day I fully intend to actually go inside some of them…

    Go to New York and not see the statue of Liberty? ;)

    Haha I never get tired of reading your posts. I never saw the huge appeal in going inside buildings or getting to the top anyways. That seems like kiddy attractions to me, “Oh look at us, we’re so high up in this building, isn’t this exciting!” You probably didn’t miss very much that you can’t find on Google, I wouldn’t worry.

    By the way, those pants look fantastic on you!

      YES! I almost never find the inside of tourist attractions as interesting as the outside (unless it’s a castle or stately home that people have actually lived in, and which I can therefore try to imagine what it would have been like to be them: love that!), which makes me reluctant to pay the often-extortionate fees for it. I thought it was just me!

    Tourist attractions definitely aren’t all what they’re cracked up to be! And brilliant capris – the bow detail is just charming.

    I love your trousers – the bow at the waist makes it for me.

  • I just wanted to tell you how I love your pin-up style polka dot trousers, but I scrolled down and saw the two more photos of your outfits and they are so beautiful! I admire your style.

  • Love this look and backdrop! ;)

    Would love to meet you one day for a coffee! xx

    The height and shape of these buildings are almost from a science fiction scenery, especially the one where you are standing in front of the huge tower.
    In contrary, your trousers are so cute with the bow and your Kate Spade bag is the perfect match.

    I love the bow detail on your trousers! And the Kate spade bag is gorgeous; it has a lovely nautical feel to it. xxx
