Hotels near the SSE Hydro Glasgow
Called the Hydro by local population, it’s a modern, forward thinking and one of the most eye catching venues in the city. On the fringe of the River Clyde and just a stone’s throw from the centre so you have no excuse not to visit.
The arena makes up part of the SEC which stands for the Scottish Events Campus. No matter how you arrive in the city, whether that’s by plane, train or automobile you’ll be able to notice the campus from a mile off. The purpose built entertainment area was created on what used to be the Queens Dock shipyard and it was designed to replicate the seating style of a Greek amphitheater. The city is proud to be home of the Hydro, one of the most noticeable and iconic music venues not just in the UK but around the world.
Big acts are attracted to the setting of the SSE Hydro in part due to the impressive 12,000 crowd capacity that it boasts. Well over a million visitors pass through the doors of the venue each and every year making it one of the most popular and important venues globally, up there with Madison Square Garden in New York. A symbol of the Glasgow skyline, and only built in 2013, it’s become as recognisable as any building in the city.
The Hydro was home to the Commonwealth Games which took place a couple of years ago as well as being the venue for MTV events and other top names from around the country.
With well over 140 acts and events that take place here every year, you have every opportunity to catch some amazing live action with the help of myhotelbreak. We can help make your event experience one to remember with excellent deals on hotels near to the SEC Hydro.
The Glasgow music scene is known for its legendary status and this coupled with the SEC, no wonder it has a status as a city of music by UNESCO. 2018 is a big year for the venue with lots of notable acts headlining as we head into the summer months with the likes of Sam Smith, Travis, Demi Lovato and American funny man Kevin Hart.

The venue is accessible and fully catered with wheelchair access for those who may be infirm. Lifts are installed at certain levels of the seated areas as well as in the car park of the SSE Hydro. There are hearing induction loops installed throughout for those patrons who may have hearing needs.
There’s an onsite bank, baby changing facilities and several bars and restaurants so you can enjoy a bite to eat or a few cocktails before the festivities of the event begins.
