Glasgow Comic Con takes place at the Royal Concert Hall, an iconic venue in the heart of the city centre. Situated at the top of Buchanan Street, it has been the home of Glasgow Comic Con since 2016. 

The Concert Hall will host hundreds of comic creators and merchandise dealers, as well as a dedicated Kids' Zone and a host of talks and panels.

The venue is just minutes away from both Glasgow Central and Queen Street Train Stations and directly opposite from the Buchanan Bus station - so don't tell us we didn't consider transport links when we picked it.

Glasgow has great transport links and is easily accessible to attendees across the UK.

The city is served by Glasgow International Airport, Prestwick Airport, Glasgow Central and Glasgow Queen Street trains stations and Buchanan Bus Station, most of which are in the heart of the city centre. The local airport is served by a 24/7 shuttle bus and neighbouring Prestwick Airport adjoins to a train station offering frequent trains direct into the city.

Staying in Glasgow

Glasgow Comic Con is in the heart of the city centre, so most central hotels will land you just a short walk away from us.

If you prefer rolling out of bed and heading straight to the convention, Citizen M and Premier Inn Buchanan Galleries are both a 60-second stroll from reception to our front door.

Failing that, we're only a five or 10-minute walk away from accommodation in the Charing Cross, George Square, Merchant City and Trongate areas.
