A transport network you can rely on

With four railway stations in the local area – the largest of which is Paisley Gilmour Street – the town is within easy commuting distance of both Glasgow and Edinburgh. The M8 motorway lies close to the northern suburbs, providing motorists with a speedy link to the rest of the UK. There are also plenty of local and regional bus routes to choose from here.

An international airport for when you need to get away

Needless to say, there are times when we all like to get away for a holiday in the sun, and Paisley people are lucky enough to have an international airport right on their own doorstep. Direct links to Europe’s summer hot-spots are available throughout the warmer months, as well as to transatlantic destinations. Business flights to Europe are also well catered for.

With bars and pubs available for those who are after a drink or two, there is also a great choice of restaurants. Cuisine from all over the world is on hand, so if you are hungry this is the place to be.

Education, education, education

As well as highly regarded universities, Paisley is home to a huge choice of schools for children of all ages. As well as traditional junior and senior schools, there are also schools for children who require further support and guidance. Parents of children of all ages will be pleased by the amount of choice they have when they first move to this charming town.
