A new home for Scotland's Museum of Transport

Appropriately enough, Scotland's Museum of Transport has moved about all over the place.
Its third stop in 50 years is the sleek Zaha Hadid-designed Riverside Museum, which opened on 21 June by the River Clyde in Glasgow. The exhibition provides a new home to historic Scottish trams and steam engines, and hosts a re-creation of a typical Glasgow street from 1890 to 1980. The museum even has its own berth – but beware if you're thinking of docking here: there's currently a 19th-century tall ship taking up the parking space.
- The Riverside Museum opened on 21 June. The tall ship Glenlee, berthed by the museum, opened on the same day (free; open from 10am).
- The M6 runs north from Rugby. Trains to Glasgow operate from Edinburgh (from £11.30; scotrail.co.uk), Bristol (from £63; thetrainline.com) and London (from £47.50; southernrailway.com). National Express buses serve Glasgow from London (from £12.50).
- Stay in Glasgow's leafy East End at Cathedral House Hotel, a baronial-style hall (from £87.50).
