A 3 km walk around the Kelvingrove area, taking in the Kelvingrove Museum and the statues in Kelvingrove Park as well as the Polish Club and some Polish history and finishing up at the University of Glasgow. The complete walk is 3 kilometres with a further kilometre to return to the start of the walk.
The Kelvin Way through Kelvingrove Park is on level ground and there is disabled access to the Museum. However, if you are walking the full 3 to 4 km walk then you will have to walk up and down some hills and slopes and steps while walking around the park and to all the locations on this walk so the full walk would not be accessible for all. If you feel you can’t join the walk then please enjoy the many photographs and links on the website.
Parking is available at the Museum in Kelvingrove, in the car park next to the Kelvin Hall or in local streets.
Public transport: A number of buses leave from the city centre and pass near to the museum and art gallery. The nearest train stations are Partick (PTK), Charing Cross (CHC) and Exhibition Centre (EXG). The closest Subway station is Kelvinhall, You can find up to date information on buses and trains from Traveline Scotland’s website, First Bus Glasgow or National Rail Enquiries.
Return to Start of Walk
It is possible to return to the start of the walk via Kelvingrove Park again, or head down University Avenue and then turn left down Byres Road towards the start of our walk at the Kelvingrove Museum area. You will find plenty of places for a coffee and cake on Byres Road!
