George Square

George Square is the main public community square of Glasgow, and is generally considered the centre of the city, though technically, Blythswood Square is the true, topological centre of Glasgow. George Square, laid out in 1781, was little more than a muddy, watery, depression for the first few years of its life, and was previously only used for slaughtering horses, but is now the location of Glasgow City Councils headquarters, and is also home to several significant monuments. The square was originally intended as a homage to King George III (hence the name), but because of the Kings growing unpopularity, partly because of his increasing public fits of madness, the square was instead dedicated to Sir Walter Scott - a Scottish novelist, playwright and poet.

It wasn't until very late in the 18th century that any real development occurred on the square, when it was finally built up with Georgian townhouses and hotels. These days, the north side of George Square boasts the Queen Street Station, the east side is preponderated by the magnificent Glasgow City Chambers (opened in 1888), while the south side is occupied by several different buildings, including what used to be the cities Post Office, as well as a stylish Chicago-esque building and the Tourist Information Centre.

In 2012, it was voted that £15million would be spent on re-modelling the square, to make it fit for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The plans state that all of George Square's magnificent, historical monuments will be removed for restoration, though it has not yet been decided if all the monuments will return to the Square. The cities council issued a statement saying - 'It is possible that the monuments may not return to the square, but may instead be relocated to an area of regeneration.'
