Travel To and From Glasgow

Home > Travel

Glasgow is easy to get to whether you're travelling by air, road, sea or rail. And, once you're here it's great to walk or cycle around, or simply jump on the quick and efficient train system or one of the many buses.

Taxis won't cost you a fortune and are readily available. Some local firms and Taxi numbers are listed below. Booking is advisable on evenings.

Although Greater Glasgow sprawls out for nearly 80 square miles, the central area of the city is compact and can be easily negotiated by foot. For the visitor, Central Glasgow can be divided into two main areas - the City Centre, which makes up the majority and contains much of the city’s shopping and entertainment district, as well as its commercial heart, and the West End – the bohemian area of cafés, restaurants and bars surrounding the University of Glasgow and Kelvingrove Museum. The best way to get good vistas of the city is to climb the many “drumlins” (hills) upon which the central area is built upon.
