George Square

Dominated by the spectacular Glasgow City Chambers, George Square is an iconic and important location in the heart of the city. Named after King George III, the square was laid out in 1781 and today is home to several historical statues and monuments, such as those of National Poet Robert Burns, Scottish inventor James Watt, former Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel and Scottish novelist Sir Walter Scott, as well as the city’s Cenotaph. George Square is often used as the focal point for Glasgow events, including Glasgow Loves Christmas!, Piping Live! and Remembrance Day parades.
