Since the Christmas Market is there now, you can't really appreciate the square for what it is. That said, I imagine it is quite beautiful at other times of the year. This is where they also do the Santa Dash.

Statute of scholars and other famous people can be found there. It also can be seen some historical building. It is always good to walk in different streets and find the differences.

George Square is close to the centre of Glasgow and is home to several statues, the cenotaph and Glasgow city chambers. At this time of year, the square is being prepared for Christmas festivities
