Was here during the Commonwealth Games. Such a great atmosphere and many people using the square to socialize and spend time outdoors. Very great focal point for the community.

After walk around the Buchanan Street we went to this place for relaxing. There are some chairs for relax. Kids can play with birds and feeding them. But bring your own bread or corn. The great architecture of City Chambers also make us enjoy sitting there.

George Square was just part of the total tour of Glasgow arranged through Trafalgar for our group. Glasgow itself was an amazing city with too little time to really explore as we would have liked.

Lovely in the late spring sunshine ,I am glad they have got rid of the monstrous big wheel that was there on my last visit.It is a real joy to walk through the square.I know they are planning to do some work on the area but I hope they don't spoil it.

The square didn't look at its best on our visit as it was being prepped for the Commonwealth Games. I'm sure when all the work is done it will look great. Lots to see around the square.

Visiting Glasgow for the first time on my day trip last May 4, 2014, I used the George Square as my REFERENCE POINT. It is about 3-5 minute walk from the Queens Train Station where I had to go back in the evening to catch my train back to Edinburgh. The tour bus that I took starts/ends at a corner... More
