The Briggait is in Glasgow's city centre. We are directly next to the main cycle path that follows the River Clyde. If travelling by train, The Briggait is approximately a ten minute walk from Queen Street Station or five minutes from Argyle Street Station. From Queen Street walk diagonally across George Square then down Miller Street onto Ingram Street. Turn right onto Stockwell Street and keep walking until you see The Briggait on your left hand side. Alternatively, many bus routes stop on Stockwell Street which is two minutes from The Briggait. Car parking is available directly across the road at King Street car park.
