George Square is Glasgow’s princial urban space, and the acknowledged centre of the city’s public life. George Square and the surrounding buildings have a strong historical link with the development of science and technology in Glasgow. Statues in the Square itself pay homage to great scientists of the past.Standards of measurement on the Square and at the City Chambers provide evidence of the Merchant City area’s central role in Glasgow’s trade, while the buildings surrounding the Square were some of the first to benefit from the new developments in lighting and electricity. Scotland’s contribution to poetry and literature is also apparent in the figures represented.
The Square is the heart of Glasgow’s cosmopolitan City Centre.
