Please Bring Back Hogmanay to George's Square and let's have the Street Party back here again, nothing else can beat it!!"
Hogmanay hasn't been the same since the Street Party was stopped. Glasgow seems dead without it. Edinburgh, Stirling, even London and cities abroad have street parties. Glasgow is the heart of Scotland and requires a street party!
We spent every Hogmanay here until the street party was stopped. The atmosphere was cheerful, fun, everyone was friendly and everyone joined in and had a good time. There was no one causing any trouble so I can't see why the party was stopped!
The fireworks were great and the entertainment was wonderful.
There was disabled access here unlike Edinburgh were it is too far for a disabled person to walk.
We always had a lucky year afterwards after seeing the New Year in here. New Year has never been the same without it!!
So if Glasgow Loves Hogmanay, Please Bring It Back!!!!

Thank Cheryl H

Another return overnight visit to Glasgow to take in the pre-Christmas atmosphere and shopping.

George Square was a winter wonderland; the Christmas tree and lit sledge and reindeer were stunning. The substantial ice rink, fun fair and covered/heated entertainment area (again substantial) were great. The entertainment facility had bars and food stations, and also seating area - a welcome warm-up after a walk around windy Glasgow.

Will be back next year!

Always eye-catching and right next to Queen Street train station, and aa 5-10 minute walk from Central Station and the Bus Station. Surrounded by a good selection of bars and restaurants this is even more worth a visit during the Xmas market, ice rink etc.

George Square recently underwent some sort of revamp and it's now very pleasant. There are plenty of benches and it's a handy place to meet, especially given it's close proximity to Queen Street station and to the main places in the city centre.
