Visit the Glasgow city website for information on Glasgow’s visitor attractions, many of which are close to the SEC. 

Why not visit the Riverside Museum or Kelvingrove Park, both a short distance from the SEC.


Riverside Museum

Riverside is home to some of the world’s finest cars, bicycles, ship models, trams and locomotives. Interactive displays and the hugely popular historic Glasgow street scene bring the objects and stories to life.


Kelvingrove Park

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum houses one of Europe's great art collections. It is amongst the top three free-to-enter visitor attractions in Scotland and one of the most visited museums in the United Kingdom outside of London.


Venture further afield to visit Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s House for an Art Lover or take the train from out the SEC to the city centre and Princes square.
