What makes this tour special
Discover an abundance of cultural treasures and stunning landmarks that reflect Central Glasgow’s rich history and vibrant architectural heritage. On your private tour, you will:
Discover a city ranked top by the EU for its cultural and creativeness, openness and tolerance where 100 cultural organisations, five national performing arts companies and museums attract more visitors than any UK city outside London.
Enjoy the Bohemian atmosphere of a former industrial centre now filled with artists, designers, creators and innovators and listed as a UNESCO City of Music
Stroll George Square, scene of many notable public speeches and learn the art of brewing the perfect Tennents pint - Glasgow’s treasured beer.
Learn how Glasgow city centre’s grid system has proven a huge draw for Hollywood filmmakers looking to mirror US cities on screen - most recently the caped crusader.
Relax at Merchant City with a pint of beer or a house wine. Once an 18th century trading hub, it's now a swish collection of bijou cafes, boutiques, and sophisticated eateries.
Flanked to the north by the River Clyde, Glasgow's vibrant city centre has the handsome paved George Square at its heart. Crowned by the City Chambers, a grandiose edifice that symbolises the city’s historic wealth, Central Glasgow is lined by a mix of grand Victorian buildings and modern towers. Our first stop, Glasgow Cathedral, is the city’s oldest building and founded by Glasgow’s patron saint, St Mungo. St Mungo’s Museum, a peaceful gallery of religious artefacts housed in a Scottish baronial style building, celebrates his holy life.
The Necropolis - a charming 27-acre Victorian garden cemetery adjacent to Glasgow Cathedral - tells the stories of those in this final resting place. Historic Wellpark brewery holds a special place in the hearts and minds of Glaswegians as the home of Tennents Brewery, and its 450 year brewing tradition, and the birthplace of Scotland’s favourite beer. George Square, another much-loved landmark, drawers picnicking families in summer and festive celebrations over winter. Our final stop is Merchant City, once an 18th century cotton, tobacco and sugar trading hub, and now a swish shopping area with bijou cafes and sophisticated eateries.
