How to Get to GSC

On foot

Get your step count up and enjoy stunning views of the Clydeside as you stroll. Glasgow Science Centre is pretty easy to walk to, as it’s well served by public footpaths. It only takes about 30 minutes to walk along the riverside from the heart of the City Centre.

By bike

  • If you would rather jump on the bike, Glasgow Science Centre is close to National Cycle Route 7. For details of cycling routes, visit Sustrans.
  • There is a Glasgow City Public Bicycle Hire Station, operated by Nextbike by TIER located at Glasgow Science Centre where you can rent, park, or return OVO bikes.
  • You'll find a useful guide and links to hiring a bicycle or e-bike in Glasgow on the You Well website.
  • Plus, there are cycle stands located by the car park close to the entrance at Glasgow Science Centre.
