Partick is an eclectic area in Glasgow’s west, and lying on the banks of the River Clyde. With great transport links, a real mix of residents, and lots of activities close by including stadiums, golf and rowing clubs, Kelvingrove Park and museum, and shopping on Byres Road. It’s also a popular hangout for students and for young renters, and this has created a surge in hip places to hangout and with a bustling, liveable vibe.
What housing can you find?
There is a mix of housing available, but the vast majority of homes are flats within the sandstone tenements on the network of streets throughout Partick. Many of these flats have impressive bay windows and high ceilings, and there are also modern developments and larger terraced houses and villas.
It’s easy getting to and from Partick, with the local railway station a hub for the overground network and subway system, and it’s only six minutes into Glasgow Central. Buses operate throughout the area, particularly along Dumbarton Road, and the A814 motorway also passes nearby.
For those who are into sport, you’ll find the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, the Scotstoun Stadium which is the home of the Glasgow Warriors, the West of Scotland Cricket Club and the Clyde Amateur Rowing Club.
Cultural highlights in the area are the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the National Theatre of Scotland and the Riverside Museum, and for more leisurely walks there’s the River Clyde or kicking back in lovely Victoria Park.
Drinking, shopping and eating
Partick has a thriving nightlife, making it a popular place for students to come to for a night out, drawn to the pubs and clubs.

There’s a huge range of eclectic foods, from handcrafted doughnuts at Tantrum Doughnuts, the Down to Earth Organic Kitchen, for 100% organic food, and plenty of Chinese and Punjabi restaurants.
