I am having a day out in Glasgow on Saturday, is there anyplace easy to get to close to Glasgow Central, I don't know the area at all and I'll be relying on my satnav and coming in on the M8.

    Hi,

    I generally use the NCP on Oswald Street. Just off Broomielaw, no problem coming off M8 to get to it, and from level 5 you have access INTO Central Station. I don't think any parking is particularly cheap in the centre, but you can't get closer to the city centre than this - other than heading for an underground station and getting the 'clockwork orange' into the city centre!

    Thanks, that was the one I was aiming for but it's good to know I chose the right one.
    You are right about prices, it looks like being about £14 for the whole day.

    I know it's too late for the OP but there are a couple of places you can park for free.

    Firstly Springfield Quay is free parking and is about 10-15 minutes walk to Glasgow Central.

    Alternatively, after 12 on a Saturday you can park for free at the very top of Sauchiehall Street at Charing Cross (near Mr Singh's if that helps), it's also free parking on a Sunday so you can leave it overnight if ever staying over.

    Ooofff £3 an hour? The car parks at Buchanan Galleries, Jamaica Street and St Enoch Centre are half the cost.
