Inspired by the Amphitheatres of the Ancient Roman World
Glasgow has grown in popularity as a tourist destination in recent years, and the city has a wide choice of cheap hotels and bed and breakfast rooms, as well as other budget accommodation, such as B&Bs, rooms in family run guest houses and city hostels. Glasgow’s industrial wealth and past can be seen in its handsome Victorian buildings and museums.
The arena features an elliptical shape and sloping lines, inspired by the amphitheatres of the ancient Roman world. Wherever you are inside the SSE Hydro Arena you can be sure of great views and wonderful acoustics. The interior of the arena is comfortable and flexible, with seats that can be rearranged for different types of events and spectaculars.
This huge auditorium is reputed to be the fourth busiest venue in the world, ranking alongside Madison Square Garden and London’s O2 Arena (find hotels).
The facade of the venue is visible from some distance away, especially at night when it ‘glows’. Its covering is a space industry film of pneumatic and translucent cushions, allowing natural light to flood in during the day. Many hotels around the complex offer great value bed and breakfast deals, free car parking and free WiFi access.
