RE: Linn Customer Event – 24th September 2015
The location of the Linn Factory is on the outskirts of Glasgow and 'relatively' remote in terms of hotels.

Much better options in the City Centre where you have all the major hotels (Marriot, Hilton etc.) and some smaller boutique hotels.

The Source is in 'da groove !!

Ok, thanks - hopefully Linn will let us know where the bus goes to at 18:30 - so can find something in that general area to stagger back to :-)

Search for the Linn factory on Google Maps and you will see what Steven means by 'relatively' remote or click on this link:-

http://www.linn.co.uk/travel-directions

It's in the Green Belt near Waterfoot on the south side of Glasgow and caused quite a stir when it was built - rumour has it that it only got Planning approval due to the Richard Rogers design and patronage!

http://www.portaltothepast.co.uk/article/3193/Factories

No shortage of great hotels in the City Centre (everything from Premier Inns upwards...) remember we hosted the Commonwealth Games - and most are within staggering distance...!

Let us know if you'd like some local knowledge before booking anything?

Thanks Donald, yes - had already done Google Maps and noticed the green belt/remoteness of the factory. I believe Linn are running a bus from city centre to site and back again so will follow that up. Many thanks.

Regards, Mike

Mike - great to hear you're planning to make it to the Event.

I've asked Linn for details of the pick-up and drop-off point for the bus.

RE: Linn Customer Event – 24th September 2015
I've booked a couple of tickets for the London event on the thursday evening - my poor wife doesn't know what she's letting herself in for but I think we're both interested to see the building as well so that should help!

From the promotional email, it would seem that the new systems are focused on lifestyle and interior decor :-(
