Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Art

Getting to Glasgow

Travelling across Scotland by bus is one of the most affordable and accessible options. It is free for people under 22, OAPs and people with disabilities and their carers. There are regular services from Edinburgh city centre and airport, Stirling, Perth, Dundee and Inverness and many other places which arrive at Buchanan Street Bus Stations in Glasgow city centre. 

There are two main national railway terminals in Glasgow city centre – Central Station and Queen Street Station. They connect the rest of Scotland and the UK to the city, but also connect to the local network which serves the south and east of the city particularly well.

If travelling to Glasgow by road visit or the Traveline Scotland app for real-time travel information.

Glasgow International Airport is 15 mins by taxi or 20 mins by bus from the city centre. It’s also worth looking for flights to and from Glasgow Prestwick and Edinburgh Airports, which are within an hour's drive of Glasgow city centre.

There is a huge range of accommodation in Glasgow and its surrounding areas suiting all tastes and budgets. We are pleased to have Citizen M as our main hotel partner for the festival.
