Glasgow Hotel

Dear all,

You are all signed up to stay at the JurysInn hotel in Glasgow for one or more nights of the ESSHC. The hotels address is:

80 Jamaica Street, Glasgow G1 4QG, United Kingdom

You can see it on the map below:

As you can see the closest train station is Glasgow Central which is also one of the stops that the bus from the airport makes (25 minute journey, a bus every ten minutes). See here for more information on the airport bus. The website of the hotel itself is here.

The hotel is a good 35 to 40 minute walk from the conference centre. I have marked a route that should be slightly pleasanter than the automatically shortest route google maps generates on the map below:

The other option is to take public transport. There are numerous options for this but the quickest seems to be to walk to the St Enoch’s subway station and get the metro doing the Glasgow Inner Circle route. One disembarks at Hillhead and walks 4 minutes to reach the central thoroughfare of the University Campus. Door to door this journey is estimated to take 16 minutes. For those of you who want to check details the website I used to work out this travel plan is here.

All of you are cordially invited to the reception that the CGEH will be hosting on Friday night  in collaboration with Brill and the Global Economics History Series. Please see here for further details and directions.
