around the city and to SEC

Train
Once in the city centre, the SEC is a three-minute train ride from Glasgow Central. If you arrive at Queen Street, you’ll need to walk or get a bus to Central to continue your journey by train.  The SEC has its own dedicated railway station – Exhibition Centre – allowing easy access from the city centre and suburbs. There are six trains an hour (around every 10 minutes) from Glasgow Central station, departing from Platform 17 (low level).  Strathclyde Passenger Transport operates the Glasgow Subway providing quick and convenient connections from 15 points across the city (the St. Enoch stop is a few minutes’ walk from Central Station for onward transfer to the campus).

Walk

Glasgow is a very walkable and easy to navigate city.  The Clyde Walkway runs right past the SEC, providing an invigorating start to day time events, or a scenic stroll to night-time happenings.  There are two foot bridges, which cross the Clydeside Express Way (dual carriageway connecting the west end to Glasgow city centre) at both the front and rear of the campus.  Three pedestrian bridges traverse the River Clyde near the SEC. Bells Bridge and the Millenium Bridge connect the campus to the Science Centre and BBC while, a little further east, the Clyde Arc (affectionately known as the ‘Squinty Bridge’) carries both vehicles and pedestrians.


Taxi

There is a Glasgow Taxis pick-up and drop-off point outside The SSE Hydro.  There are several taxi ranks throughout the city including at Buchanan Bus Station, Queen Street and Central stations and most large hotels.  The distinctive black cabs can accommodate five or six people. If their yellow light is on you can flag them down on the street. Alternatively, you can call +44 (0) 141 429 70 70 or visit the Glasgow Taxis website to book.
