City of Glasgow Tour

Take in the sights on a City of Glasgow Tour & learn about the rich & varied history of Scotland's biggest city. With a population of 600,000 (metropolitan population 1.9 million) and once the fourth biggest city in Europe, Glasgow built its fortune down the centuries on fishing during the medieval period, trade with North America & Asia from the 17th century, shipbuilding, steel fabrication & steam locomotive manufacturing which peaked at the end of the 19th century. The legacy of the incredible wealth generated during these periods is some fantastic gothic, Georgian, Victorian & art deco architecture, some world class museums and art galleries (most offering free entry) & over 90 parks. In fact Glasgow has more green space per capita than any city in Europe.

 A City of Glasgow Tour, can be taken as a two hour trip around the city or as a half-day tour taking in the rich history of the city centre and elegant West End, sights include Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, City Chambers, the 'Armadillo', the cathedral and Glasgow University.

A half city tour of Glasgow includes all of the major sights in the city centre, west end and Clydeside. The full day tour, as well as the above includes Pollok Country Park, including Pollok House, the Burrell Collection and could include a visit to Auchentoshan or Clydeside Distillery and I can make a recommendation on where to eat, anything from great takeaways to atmospheric pubs and fine dining restaurants.

I am completely flexible when it comes to itineraries so if you would like a longer tour to spend more time at some of the city's visitor attractions extra hours can be added on. Similarly, if you would like to visit any of the many out of town attractions such as Loch Lomond National Park or a whisky distillery then these can be tagged on to a City Tour of Glasgow.
