Are you coming along to Paisley’s Halloween celebrations for an Out of this World experience between Thursday 28 October and Monday 1 November?

Whatever your mode of transport, we’ve got the information you need!


By car


Paisley town centre is a 12 minute drive from Glasgow city centre.

The M8 motorway travels through Renfrewshire on its Greenock / Glasgow / Edinburgh route.

If you’re driving to Paisley, use Junction 27 westbound coming from Glasgow, or Junction 29 eastbound coming from Greenock / Loch Lomond.

The Erskine Bridge (use Junction 30) is your gateway to crossing the River Clyde and exploring the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

There are a number of road closures and diversion routes around Glasgow for COP26, so plan ahead and allow for extra travel time if coming from that direction.
