The main building has automatic doors at both East and West entrances. All halls in the main building are situated at ground level, and the upper levels of the Conference Centre, Loch Suite and Seminar Suite are all accessible by lift. The majority of visitor parking is located at the west of the site and car park 1 at the east of the building is also available for blue badge holders, on a first-come, first-served basis, as spaces are limited. The SECC has wheelchair accessible toilets situated on the main concourse and in all exhibition/concert halls. More information for disabled visitors can be found here.
Pushchairs are permitted in the venue however the Fair does get very busy, especially on Fridays and Saturdays, so we strongly recommend that they be left at home where possible.
