Getting Around

Glasgow is the fourth largest city in the UK so it’s no surprise finding your way around can be bamboozling. To make it that bit easier we have helped to organise and list some free and special methods of transport for during Glasgow Doors Open Day and have also displayed some helpful websites for route planning. To help save the planet try to walk, cycle or use public transport throughout Glasgow.

Remember you could download our free audio trail to listen to on your walks between buildings. Click here for more information.
