Latest Glasgow Science Centre parking reviews
Needed a handy space for a great price and this place totally fits the bill.Kathleen
Really easy to find coming off the westbound M8. The surface of the car park is a bit rough, but that is outweighed by the good price for city centre car parking. I don't quite understand how my place was guaranteed as the car park was unattended and people could drive in and pay at the meter. However, there were plenty of spaces anyway, so that wasn't an issue. I'll certainly use this car park again when I'm in that area of Glasgow again.Margaret
Great service. I inadvertently paid twice, emailed them and sorted, payment refunded. No problem, easy to use and will use againGillian
Found and used this space easily. Definitely will use again.Karen
Very handy and good valueJoanne
Great price. Easy to find and close to city centre and M8. The walk google took me on to get to Charing Cross though was a bit scary. Expected flying monkeys, lions, tigers and bears to attack at any second!Lewis
