WESTBOURNE TERRACE

WHERE IS IT? At the top end of Hyndland Road in the city's West End, round the corner from Great Western Terrace.

Found at the top end of Hyndland Road, Westbourne Terrace is a short walk from the Great Western Terrace, sharing not only location but a landowner, James Whitelaw Anderson.

Although work started on Great Western Terrace sooner, Westbourne were constructed quicker and with less hassle than the other Anderson project, completed in 1871. While not as grand as Great Western, Westbourne is nevertheless a classic Thomson terrace design, with Ionic columns, and featuring the architect’s first use of bay windows. Westbourne stands out in one regard; the cast-iron railings and lamps are still intact, having been restored in 1994.
