Parking and Travel

Partick and the West End of Glasgow have excellent public transport links with bus, underground and train stations within walking distance of all venues.

The closest public transport is Kelvinhall  (not to be confused with Kelvinbridge) underground station which is the nearest to all venues other than Partick Burgh hall which is closest to Partick subway stop.
Parking close to the venue is limited and expensive so if bringing your car to Glasgow we would encourage you to use park’n’ride (available at Shields Road underground and can be pre-booked).
Accordion players if you wish to drop instruments at St Peters or Partick Burgh Hall before parking then there will be tutors at the venues from 9am each morning.
Metered parking is available close to the venues but can be expensive and will require topping up during the day.  There is free residential parking available in Hyndland and Broomhill, both are around a 10/15 minute walk from the venues.  They have recently painted marked bays in these zones but we have been told paid parking doesn’t come in to enforcement until August.
For buses please consult the First bus website (they have a good journey planner)
