How to get to the Quay

We are advising all visitors to take public transport to get to the site. For Traffic restrictions during the Commonwealth Games go to


McGill’s Bus 23 and 26 (Pacific Drive form City Centre)

City Sightseeing Tour Bus (Pacific Drive from City Centre)

McGills will be running a strengthened service for the event during peak times.


Exhibition Centre is located on the Argyle Line with regular services running from Glasgow Central and Partick Stations. To reach BBC at the Quay you will need to cross the Clyde Arc via Finnieston Street.


The nearest station is Cessnock. Exit the station and turn left, then turn right onto Brand Street and then left onto Lorne Street. Turn left onto Pacific Drive and follow event signage towards the entrance into the site.


There are pedestrian and cycling routes from Glasgow City Centre to the festival site. Pedestrians coming from that side of the Clyde will need to cross the Clyde Arc unless they are coming directly from an event at the SECC precinct as there are restrictions on both the Millennium Bridge and Bell’s Bridge.

Parking will be available on a first come first served basis in the Glasgow Science Centre car park, which is immediately adjacent to the site. Those with access requirements will qualify for a discounted rate of £3 which will also give you free access to the Science Centre. There is limited availability and unfortunately we cannot guarantee a space.
