    Sorry they're not all within walking distance of the SECC! But Galsgow is relatively small - jump on the train/underground and that will whiz you around to most of these places. about 8 years ago

    I love Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in the west end, as much for the architecture as whats inside. Also check out The Burrell Collection in Pollock Estate (on the east Side), gorgeous parklands to wander around and then a spot of tea and tour of the private art collection. The Gallery of Modern Art is bang in the city centre so that's worth a look too. More info on the galleries here; http://www.glasgowlife.org.uk/museums/Pages/home.aspx The city centre has some interesting architecture but is very heavily high street shopping, Have a mosy around the west end (Byers Rd and Ashton Lane) which has more of a villagey feel, and check out the Botanic Gardens and kibble palace whilst your there. Glasgow is not known for its gastronomy...... but a few of my faves when I lived there include Stravaigin in Kelvinbridge , Rab Ha's in Merchant City for authentic pub fare- you should try haggis n tatties, its actually very nice. The Dhabba (indian ) in merchant city, Two Fat Ladies in the west end for upmarket fish n chips. Enjoy! about 8 years ago

    What is the best way to get to Dublin from London?

    Another option is flying. You can usually find pretty cheap airfares between Dublin and London too. Much quicker and often cheaper than trains in the UK. Try ryanair or easyjet; http://www.ryanair.com/en http://www.easyjet.com/ about 8 years ago

    Also get yourself a mosquito net to sleep under. Depending on where you are going you may want to consider Malaria tablets. There's more information here; http://www.traveldoctor.info/trip/result.1.151.2.html about 8 years ago

    Can you recommend any mid-range restaurants in Sydney that accomodate large dinner parties?

    I quite like the cushion room upstairs at the Nepalese Kitchen on Crown St, cheap and cheerful and delicious. The Commons in Darlinghurst also does a good set menu for a group; http://thecommons.com.au/ The Falconer on Oxford ST has a great atmosphere too and will accommodate groups; http://www.thefalconer.com.au/ about 8 years ago
