I’ve Got to Show You The Lane

I've Got to Show you the LaneThe photo doesn’t do it justice. Nestled away in the West End of Glasgow lies perhaps the cutest, most amazing place ever. It’s called Ashton Lane and if I could, I would live there.

I’ve passed through it a few times in my lifetime (more so in recent years) and only recently did I stop into one of the restaurants for a bite to eat with some friends. I love this lane. There’s no big chain stores, just independent, unique places. There’s a few bars, some restaurants and perhaps, best of all, the tiny cinema.  Tucked in between buildings on this street is a vintage style cinema that isn’t an Odeon, or Cineworld, it is just a cinema showing both classic films and new releases. I’ve not been inside as of yet but I’ll be sure to put it on the bucket list.

This is how I wish every street to be: not full of big branded shops, long queues or false advertising. Just plain old innocence and joy. When asked my ideal date location, it’s not just any restaurant or cinema, it has to be Ashton Lane. I look forward to many visits in my time.
