Access Guide


Tramway is a leading international art space that commissions produces and presents contemporary visual and performance art. 

Based in the south of Glasgow, a few minutes by train from the city centre, in premises that began life as a tram depot, Tramway has a high quality, agenda-setting experimental and dynamic programme.

Tramway was the first venue in Scotland to host the world-famous Turner Prize, in 2015, and is one of the most sought after and prestigious spaces in Scotland for artists to present new work.

Tramway’s versatile spaces can be used by private and corporate clients as an edgy venue ‘with a difference’.  Tramway is an ideal space for performances, exhibitions, private viewings, seminars, meetings and smaller-scale functions.

Tramway 1 is a flexible space capable of meeting the needs of the most demanding projects and ambitious ideas. It has a standard capacity of 600 seats of which 378 are flexible and can be set in a variety of configurations. The remaining 222 seats form a fixed balcony overlooking the main performing area.

Tramway 2 is the principal exhibition space and one of the largest single galleries in Europe. The original tramlines, steel pillars and the sheer scale of this space make it one of the most impressive visual arts spaces in Europe.

Tramway 4 is a studio theatre with flexible seating for up to 90 people. Tramway 5 is an exhibition space that can accommodate up to 60 people.

The Studio offers a more traditional setting and is suitable for smaller board meetings, presentations and talks for between 4 and 40 people.

The venue also benefits from a spacious Café offering fresh, organic produce.  Immediately adjacent to the cafe is the Mezzanine area which offers an informal meeting space that can be used as breakout for up to 40 people.
