Clyde Auditorium Hotel Accommodation

Clyde AuditoriumStanding on the site of the Queen’s Dock on the banks of the River Clyde, the Clyde Auditorium has become a landmark of the city of Glasgow since it first opened in 1997. Affectionately known as “The Armadillo”, this concert and conference venue was designed by architects Foster and Partners from the inside out, with every attention paid to acoustics and to the comfort of audiences and delegates at the venue. The site has drawn comparisons with the Sydney Opera House due to its shape, but it was in fact inspired by the image of interlocking hulls reminiscent of Glasgow’s boatbuilding history.

The building has welcomed the Scottish auditions of Britain’s Got Talent and The X-Factor and its façade has even featured in US cartoon sitcom The Simpsons. The venue has a 3,000 seat capacity over three floors and is backed up by breakfast rooms, breakout rooms and offices. It has become a leading European conference venue boasting state of the art technical facilities capable of staging the most challenging and complex events.

The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre website has comprehensive information about the Clyde Auditorium –
