WELCOME TO GLASGOW!

DECEMBER 2021  The Glasgow Gander returns in a blaze of glory to welcome you to glorious Glasgow — a world city crackling with energy and ripe for exploration! Encounter the history, culture & architecture of Scotland's powerhouse on a walking tour which gives you the detail you need and the insight you crave.

 
GLASGOW CITY CENTRE WALKING TOUR

Walk with the self-styled Glasgow Gander around Glasgow City Centre, from Royal Exchange Square to Glasgow Cathedral, taking in the city's famed Victorian architecture, and drinking deeply of its vibrant atmosphere. Learn the fascinating story of Glasgow in the company of a passionate guide. Points of interest include: Royal Exchange Square, Buchanan Street, George Square and Glasgow City Chambers, Trades Hall, the Merchant City, Glasgow Cross, High Street and the Cathedral Precinct. 

 

WHERE WE LEAVE FROM

The tour leaves from just north of the Gallery of Modern Art on Royal Exchange Square*. (Outside COSTA Coffee; see map below for exact location.) When you get to the front of the Gallery of Modern Art (near the Duke of Wellington statue, with the cone on his head) keep your eye out for the man in the Glasgow Gander jacket! 

* Not George Square!

FINISHING POINT

Glasgow Cathedral, approximately 15 minutes walk from George Square. 

                       CORONAVIRUS

All Scottish Covid regulations will be adhered to. There is one indoor stop on the tour, during which masks may be required, unless you are exempt. If you do not want to wear a mask, I would ask you, with thanks, to wait outside the venue for a few minutes.
