The Barras - Review

The Barras has a very enchanting story to tell. A young fruit-seller opened a small shop here at a tender age of twelve. The place slowly grew and became very popular. The young fruit seller and her husband soon started a thriving business by acquiring land around the area making it into what it is today; one of the most important markets of Glasgow.

The indoor market is as bright and vibrant as it was then. It is also called Barrowland which is the English verision of the dialectical Barras. It is an amazing exepreince to just walk around the place and observe all the wares and enjoy the atmosphere. Besides, there are also quite a few shops selling food as well as restaurants and bars to eat at. All in all, it is a lovely place to sample the culture of Scotland.

Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Glasgow itinerary 3 days.

The Barras, Glasgow Reviews

Google+
  • Full of good characters and old treasures. Or is that old characters & good treasures? Still worth a wee wander, even for old times sake (if you grew up in Glasgow from the 60s till the 90s that is). However its died a death down there & I was surprised just how much of the old Barras was closed. Sad times. There's still wee pockets of loveliness though in the form of the Barras Art & Design (BAAD for short), where many a wee cool event or food n drink can be had. The place needs revived a bit so hopefully it can make a return to its former self in time. Good place for cheap lino too.

  • Flea market in Glasgow. This was recommended as an "off the beaten path" tourist attraction by a friend. It's not as large as I expected. We just walked through it and continued on the the Necropolis. Wouldn't necessarily recommend it unless you are antiquing or looking for a deal.

  • It's an experience you have to visit. Lovely new stores. And you can always find a bargain if you have time to search!

  • This is the best way to spend your weekend mornings in all of Glasgow. Souch fun to have a rummage and find some bargains or just eat deep fried pizzas and listen to the banter.

  • A shadow of its former self with online shopping, but still a good place for a wander and there are still bargains to be had.
