The SECC is an impressive multi-purpose venue in Glasgow for concerts, congresses and various meetings. The architecture also is impressive. Originally opening in 1985 it has been expanded over the years and is 95% owned by Glasgow City Council. The Clyde Auditorium was built in 1997 and looking rather like an Armadillo, is thus often called that! The site occupies 64 acres, mostly parking for 1600 cars and has its own train station nearby, although with a formidable walk still through one of the most interesting tunnels I have experienced.
