Glasgow is a city filled with history, and has plenty of famous landmarks to admire. While most people love what Scotland’s largest city has to offer, there will always be individuals who disagree. So, we found some bad reviews of the Glasgow landmarks on TripAdvisor, and they’re as funny as they sound. Let’s dive in!
Duke of Wellington Statue
The Duke of Wellington Statue’s cone has become Glasgow’s symbol over the years, and a symbol of the city’s sense of humour. However, some people disagreed in their reviews, saying: “Why on earth has this statue still got that cone on the mans head. What on earth do tourists think when they see that.”
Another person urged tourists not to bother: “I can only imagine this traffic cone was placed there by some drunk. It used to be taken off regularly but then promptly replaced. Now it seems to be accepted as something of a talking point. I am a local and hate seeing it every time I pass. Tourist? Don’t waste your time.”
Apparently, it is not good enough to hold a seance, as one person said: “I have no idea why this place is always on a top ten list for Glasgow; I wouldn’t exactly call it a destination. I know it has a history but it’s too clean and not overgrown or creepy or anything like where I’d want to hold a seance. All that travel for nothing! We had to take the candles back to Manchester and start all over for something a bit more atmospheric…”
Even though Merchant City is not the most beloved neighbourhood in the city, some people were so put off by the drunk people they were warning tourists not to even come to the UK. The person wrote: “Terible food, terible drunk peopple,not people Not recomending to anyone coming to scotland !!!! Do not go to Uk.”
Yep, George Square is, indeed, a square. One person left a bad review, stating this: “This is the main squar at the centre of Glasgow. It has some statues some wee grassy bits and a lot of pigeons. Can some times be populated by beggars or overly aggressive locals who have been on the buckfast tonic wine (a local tipple of choice) you must try the sausage rolls fae greggs on the corner with queen street. So not much to see and a wee bit shady. Glasgow’s miles better…..aye right ye are pal!!!!”
“Not worth the effort…closest train station is Glasgow Central and then a short 6 minute walk
The view is nothing spectacular….only saw roofs of buildings and houses. It’s only 120 degree view! Not a 360 view 🙄 Waste of time….go shopping instead!”, wrote a person who thinks shopping is better than the views of our wee rooftops.
