“Glasgow Senior Citizens Orchestra”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

we went along to hear the 50th Anniversary concert of the Glasgow Senior Citizens' Orchestra which was held in the City Chambers. This is my first visit to the City Chambers and I was very impressed. It is a public space and I believe that visiting is encouraged. Certainly it is worth going along to see what the victorian architects and tradesmen were able to do with marble. the banqueting hall, where the Orchestra played, was truly breathtaking. As to the Orchestra, thier performance made me realise what good music is all about.

“Marvellous display of marble”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

On entry into the City Halls you will be amazed at the amount of imported marble used in the making of the grandeur staircases, balustrades and other very ornate carvings etc. As a working City Hall, access may be prevented at times but is a very memorable experience. Lots more to see and read about the history of Glasgow. Unforgettable visit.

Nicest building of the city of Glasgow on the nicest Square of the city. A must see! A few steps away from Buchanan street.
