This is the perfect tour for people visiting Glasgow for a conference and who have limited time, but the desire to get some fresh air and to go exploring Glasgow’s stunning west end scenery, architecture and cultural hot spots.
Setting off by bike, with your local guide from the Scottish Event Campus and Clyde Auditorium (aka Armadillo), you will cycle via the thriving Finnieston area, through beautiful leafy Kelvingrove park and onto the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum; explore Glasgow University’s quadrangle & cloisters and if time permits take in the beautiful Botanic Gardens in the Victorian West End.
Even better, all of the above is possible with very little time spent on roads. We use a combination of cycle ways, shared pathways and car free routes.
Scottish Event Campus Delegate Bike Tour Hotspots
The Botanic Gardens and Kibble Palace
Originally known as “The Kibble Crystal Art Palace”, this fantastic glass structure is now housed in Glasgow’s Botanic Garden. The site was formally taken on by Glasgow City Council in 1891.
As the 2nd oldest university in Scotland, Glasgow University is linked to Glasgow Cathedral in that its early teachings started there and the university eventually being given papal approval in 1451. Another fantastic and impressive building.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery
Located on the banks of the Kelvin river, this is a breathtaking building and is the most visited free to enter tourist attraction in Scotland. A must see for any visitor.
The Kelvin river and walkway
Glasgow’s second most iconic river, which weaves its way through Glasgow’s west end, provides some of Glasgow’s most stunning scenery and runs past some of the best bars and restaurants.
The Queen's Dock and Armadillo
The Scottish Event Campus is still a remarkably busy and important hub for Glasgow, but it was a very different place during the 1900s. The Clyde Auditorium, known locally as the Armadillo, the building is one of the most recognisable structures on the river Clyde and was built to increase the capacity of the SECC.
The Finnieston Crane
One of the most iconic structures on the Glasgow skyline, is retained as a testament to the tradition of engineering on the Clyde river.
