Join GCHT Historic Buildings Officer Niall Murphy to explore how Glasgow evolved from its ancient origins.
Glasgow City Heritage Trust will be running four ‘Glasgow Through the Ages’ guided walks for Glasgow Doors Open Days showing how Glasgow evolved from its origins as a medieval city, through its industrial past and the Scottish Enlightenment in the late 18th Century, to the Victorian period which gave birth to some of Glasgow’s finest buildings.
Highlights include the Tolbooth, the site of the Old College, survivors such as the British Linen Bank and Provand’s Lordship, the impact of the Glasgow City Improvement Trust, the Barony Church and Glasgow Cathedral, the Glasgow Museum of Religious Life and Art, the Royal Infirmary and Dispensary, the Martyrs School and St Mungos RC Church in Townhead.
No booking required.
Meeting point: GCHT Offices, 54 Bell St
Duration: 2 hours approx.
