Prince's Dock

Once busy with shipping and commerce, the Prince's Dock area is now a symbol of regeneration for Glasgow and the Clyde.

Bell's Bridge was constructed for the 1988 Glasgow Garden Festival which took place on the newly filled Prince's dock site. This was one of the first steps in the regeneration of  the Clyde. Along with the memorable European Year of Culture in 1990 it helped restore the hopes of local people lamenting the loss of industries that had been a way of  life.

Creative Clyde is the new digital media quarter is being developed at Pacific Quay alongside the Glasgow Science Centre and new BBC building.
