George Square in the heart of Glasgow. If you're not sure of the city it's the ideal place to meet. It's right beside Queen Street Railway Station and Buchanan Bus Station and Glasgow Central Railway Station are close by. It's a lovely place to sit in the summer to have lunch and watch the world go by. City Chambers sits... More

Going to the square at Christmas has always been a fun, the lights always make Christmas seem more festive. Now there is a fairground, ice rink and bar to give the experience a modern twist. The carousel is fun for all ages and cheap too. The bars are cosy and have a view over the whole square, you can sit... More

The BFM really likes the iconic central area of Glasgow that is George Square. It is the quintessential open space in the city centre which is full at Hogmanay and Christmas time. It's a great focal point and a wonderful starting point for a food tour, shopping or sightseeing tours. It's surrounded by roads on all four sides and some... More

There's nothing particularly attractive about George Square, but it's the center of the city and a convenient starting point to find city attractions like museums, the School of Art and shopping.

The heartbeat of the city in the centre of town. Locals and visitors alike can enjoy a break from the day and watch life go by. Surrounded by bars and resturants and often the venue of changing themes, most recently Winter Wonder Land fair and ice skating rink, there is usually something that entertains.
