Places to Stay close to Exhibit and Conference Centres

It’s not just holidaymakers who are attracted by the diverse selection of cheap accommodation that’s available in some of the UK’s top destinations. Convention and exhibition centres like London ExCel, the NEC in Birmingham, Edinburgh EICC and Glasgow SECC attract thousands of visitors each year.

Most British convention centres are close to a coach or railway station. For example, Glasgow SECC is the biggest exhibition venue in Scotland and it’s located on the banks of the River Clyde. It’s just a short distance from both Glasgow Central railway station and Buchanan Street coach and bus station. The convention centre is also next to the SSE Hydro and the Clyde Auditorium, known locally as the Armadillo.

Many local hotels offer cheap deals for business guests and it’s also worth checking if you and your colleagues qualify for a discount if you’re staying for a longer period. Many b&b establishments and independent hotels are also more than happy to consider a reduction in nightly rates if you’re staying for a week or more.

Finally, be sure to choose hotels that fully meet your needs. When visiting a city for a show or exhibition, it’s likely that you’ll want to be in the heart of the city. If you have special mobility needs or are travelling with children it’s good to know that there are hotels that cater for disabled guests or welcome children in every UK city.
