About

Rediscover the Clyde. This app for smartphone and tablet explores social, cultural and industrial change, in stories told by local people along Glasgow’s great river.

A trail of re-imagining and rediscovery along Glasgow’s great river; Clydeside Promenade is a beautifully illustrated interactive audio walking tour for smartphone and tablet.

From Govan in the West to Bridgeton in the East End, we walk upstream following the river as it flows through art and architecture, shipbuilding and trade, music and theatre, folklore and living memory... through the heart and soul of Glasgow itself.

It's a long walk so we have split it into four parts: Govan old and new – from Govan Cross to Finnieston Crane The Commercial Clyde – from Lancelot Quay to Glasgow Green Dear Green Place – from Glasgow Green to the East End The East End – a circular loop from Bridgeton via Emirates Stadium

You can take the tour in any order you like. Just use the map to decide where to start and stop. Clydeside Promenade features historian guide Ronnie Scott with many other voices.

Walking Heads make vivid audio walking tours because we love exploring, on and off the beaten track. We believe that every building and every street have stories to tell and often the most interesting stories are found in unlikely places. The character of a city is revealed not just in great architecture but in the way people make use of the buildings and the spaces between them.
Whether we are exploring music, cinema, comedy architecture or industrial history, Walking Heads tours open doors to stories hidden inside buildings we take for granted, the ones we walk past almost every day.
