There is a good Riverside Walk from Glasgow centre out to the Science Centre, then to the Clydeside Distillery just across the footbridge, then to the Riverside Museum half of a mile west, then to the Goven Stones in Govan Church just across the footbridge or by River Ferry from the Riverside Museum, then there are many inexpensive buses from Govan 3 miles back to the city centre.

This is a Multi Complex with a Science Mall, an IMAX Cinema, and the Glasgow Tower that opened in 2001.

The Science Mall, is over three floors, with over 250 interactive exhibits, a Science Show Theatre, and the Glasgow Science Centre Planetarium, that projects images of the night sky onto a 49ft diameter dome.

The IMAX Cinema, seats 370 with a massive 82 feet by 62 feet screen, that can also display 3D films.

The 416ft high Glasgow Tower, was designed to give 360 degree views over the city of Glasgow. Tower Website

The huge car park costs about £6 for up to 24 hours. This is where the Waverley Paddle Steamer departs from now, so the Science Centre car park is used for that as well. Opening times, and prices for entry visit:
