A beautiful university. Fabulous to be allowed to wander around and enjoy the architecture. Tours are available but we didn't have time to do this but hope to return in future.

Take a short 10 minute walk down the hill to Byres Road or Ashton Lane, which is a more boutique dining experience, and eat there. Just tell the server you want separate checks before you order. Hope this helps Bob
