Kelvingrove BandstandKelvinway, Glasgow, G3 7TA, United Kingdom
The worst, most distracting viewpoint I've experienced as a wheelchair user.
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
The disabled platform is not within the venue amphitheatre. I'm assured this is due to the listed nature of the building but i find it hard to accept that during its 2010s restoration full wheelchair access couldn't have been provided. The worst problem, however, is that in front of the viewing platform is the main thorough-fair. There is therefore a continual stream of people moving in front of the viewing area. I could see just above them but the distraction is constant. Additionally, security staff would attempt to stop patrons from standing still in this pathway and the back row of the amphitheatre. i could see over them without problem but staff would continually point me out as if my view was being impaired and that i was complaining. This led to understandable disbelief from these patrons who, on more than one occasion, had to ask me if their standing below me actually bothered me. These never-ending distractions made it impossible to concentrate on the concert. Avoid.
Transport & Parking
There is no disabled parking close to the venue
There was, of course, a disabled toilet but as it was in the same building as the regular concerts i couldn't even enter it with a security person's assistance. She therefore led me to the Ladies ( I'm male ) which was - at that time quieter.
