Maybe the Encore cafe in the Royal Concert Hall should have its own Tripadvisor page? You dont need to be visiting for a show, and its a great cafe to visit if you are looking for a pit stop in central Glasgow during the day. At the top of Buchanan street head up the stairs into the Concert Hall and... More

What can I say about this place what a beautiful venue glasgow should be proud of if the only critique I have is that the toilets are to far away from the halls

I love the pianos dotted around the hall. A lovely way to engage and inspire others to play. The RNSO were outstanding and well worth hearing perform. The conductor spoke engagingly and his passion for music for evident. A wonderful evening with helpful staff

First visit to this venue. Very good, lots of space for wheelchair access and carers. Concert was brilliant but that was to be expected. Staff not keen on those taking photos and videos but if you wanted to dance then that is ok. Staff also very helpful.
