Niall Murphy shows us how Glasgow evolved from the age of the Scottish Enlightenment and as a result of the innovative works of the Glasgow City Improvement Trust.
Highlights include the lost realm of the Tobacco Lords, the high jinks of the Hellfire club, the devastating economic impact of the collapse of the City of Glasgow Bank, the works of the City Improvement Trust, Glasgow’s interwar ‘Avenue of the Americas’ and the County Buildings.
No booking required.
Meeting point: St Andrews in the Square
Duration: 2 hours approx.
Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival is an annual event taking place across the city during the third week in September. Buildings open their doors and give free access to the public to showcase the city’s architecture and heritage. As well as access to buildings, the week-long programme includes walks, tours, talks and special events.
