Getting There

Buses: SPT are putting on a free shuttle bus service between the city centre (and elsewhere) and the river festival. One of them (501, George Square-SECC) might be useful to our members.

The timetable can be found here.

Trains: Glasgow has two major railway stations in the city centre, Glasgow Central Station and Glasgow Queen Street Station. The Crowne Plaza is less than 2 miles from either of these and a taxi should cost no more than £4.

The nearest railway station to the convention hotel is Exhibition Centre. This lies on the Argyle Line from Glasgow Central Low-Level Station. On exiting the station, turn sharp right and take the covered walkway towards the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC). The hotel is straight ahead.

Planes: The hotel is 8 miles from Glasgow International Airport. A taxi from the airport will cost about £19.

...and Automobiles: The hotel is adjacent to the SECC, the Clyde Auditorium (known locally as the 'Armadillo') and the famous 'Squinty Bridge' (aka the Glasgow Arc). The M8 motorway runs close to the venue and the SECC exit is junction 19. There are (inevitably!) road works in the Crowne Plaza area. However, it should still be possible to follow the brown tourist signs bearing the name of the hotel.

Parking: Convention members (whether resident or not) may park in the Crowne Plaza car park, which lies beyond main reception on the riverfront, for £3 per day.
