Scottish Event Campus

The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) features the SEC Centre - five interconnected exhibition and meeting spaces, the iconic 3,000 seat SEC Armadillo and our most recent addition, The SSE Hydro – a 13,000 capacity concert, sporting and special events arena.  With its infinite flexibility, the campus has gone from strength to strength and, with planned expansion and development, will continue to position Glasgow on the world stage.

Once in the city centre, the SEC is a three-minute train ride from Glasgow Central. If you arrive at Queen Street, you’ll need to walk or get a bus to Central to continue your journey by train.

The SEC has its own dedicated railway station – Exhibition Centre – allowing easy access from the city centre and suburbs. There are six trains an hour (around every 10 minutes) from Glasgow Central station, departing from Platform 17 (low level).

Strathclyde Passenger Transport operates the Glasgow Subway providing quick and convenient connections from 15 points across the city (the St. Enoch stop is a few minutes’ walk from Central Station for onward transfer to the campus).

Accessibility Access

On disembarking at the Exhibition Centre, a lift is available to take you to street level. A covered walkway connects the station to the Scottish Event Campus.
