The University Flagpole
The University Flagpole is the perfect spot on campus for terrific views of the city. From here you can admire two of Glasgow’s most popular tourist attractions, Kelvingrove Park and the landmark Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum. Glasgow is Gaelic for ‘Dear Green Place’ and has over 90 parks and formal gardens, with Kelvingrove being the most iconic.
To the right you will also see the stunning architecture of the newly developed Kelvin Hall, a partnership between the University, the Hunterian Museum, the National Library of Scotland, and the city of Glasgow. To the left of Kelvingrove in the distance, you can admire the striking architecture of the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC), the Clyde Auditorium (known locally as the Armadillo) and the SSE Hydro arena on the waterfront of the River Clyde.
