Glasgow's Railway Arch Murals & SWG3


The Railway Arch Project is an ambition of SWG3 and the Yardworks Project to create Scotland’s largest outdoor art gallery of street based art. Each year the arches will be updated with new murals and street art.

SWG3 is an art space and holds a festival each May to showcase talent from across the world. The railway arches are adjacent to SWG3 and they are located next to the busy Clydeside Expressway, one of the main roadways into Glasgow. Around this area you can walk across a bridge to the Clydeside Distillery, SEC and Transport Museum. You can walk to SWG3 in around 30 minutes from the Charing Cross area of Glasgow.

I visited in March 2020 and the below are the current works of art.
