Visiting Glasgow

Visitors will love Glasgow: the friendliness of the people, the quality of the shopping and the numerous cafés, bars and restaurants.

Scotland's Trade Fair Autumn takes place at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow. The SEC is the largest and best equipped exhibition facility in Scotland. It is located a mile West of Glasgow City Centre on the banks of the River Clyde.

SEC & SSE Hydro
The Scottish Event Campus is home to the Armadillo and the newly built SSE Hydro where there are regular concerts and live events. Why not see what’s on and make a night of it? This year it will be Russell Howard who is on at the Hydro on 21st September - the night before the show – you will have to hurry though – tickets are like hen’s teeth!

The area around Argyll St to the north of the SEC is known as Finnieston and is positively hooching with fantastic new bars and restaurants all within easy walking distance of the SEC.
