How do I get there, and is there parking?

Subway: Hop on Glasgow’s famous ‘clockwork orange’ subway system and walk from either Kelvinhall or get off at St Enoch station and jump on a lower-level train from Central.
Bus: The X19 Stagecoach service operates near to the Scottish Event Campus, stopping on Finnieston Street only a few minutes’ walk from the venues. X19 Stagecoach timetable.
Bike: The SEC is surrounded by easily accessible cycle lanes. Pick up and drop off a Nextbike Glasgow outside of the SEC for a more sustainable way of travel.
Car parking: Visitors can park in the SEC carpark opposite the venue. The postcode for satnav users is G3 8GS. The height restriction is 2m, so those coming via motorhomes exceeding this can park in Car Park 5 at the venue.
