Transport & Parking


Unsure about public transport & parking near Sauchiehall Street.



Level access in and plenty space around tables for powerchairs to maneovre. To get to the lift and till on ground floor this is a slight incline (no handrails) which might be a bother for some. Alternatively, two steps with handrails. Signage was very clear for what floor has what genres of books, and for where the toilets are.



I used the accessible toilet on the Lower Ground floor next to the cafe. (There is another next to the Cafe Bar on the top floor but I didn’t use this). The cafe one is through one door which was quite heavy and then you have to turn left/ do a U turn to get into the toilet. Plenty space inside for a powerchair to turn and for someone to come in with you. No red cord though!! Don’t know how to report this, any tips reviewers?



Spoke to staff at the tills, on the floor and at the cafe, all so nice and helpful. Offered to carry things and pack my bag without making a big deal of everthing.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

I can’t wait to come back and look for more bookish treasures. P.S - if you buy the “book of the month” you get a free hot drink in the cafe when you show the receipt!
