About

An audio walking tour exploring the past and present of some of Glasgow's finest corner buildings and the people who made them.

Glasgow Corners audio walking tour is an app for smartphones and tablets, exploring hidden twists and turns of some of city's most intriguing corner buildings.

The tour, led by architect Niall Murphy, was commissioned by Scottish Opera to celebrate the arrival of a spectacular new corner, welcoming the public into the grand old Theatre Royal in the heart of Glasgow.

In the company of other architects and historians, Niall takes us to twelve very different buildings with one thing in common: a theatrical sense of the Glasgow style.

From Theatre Royal to Mackintosh's Lighthouse via the old Odeon cinema, Grand Central Hotel and flamboyantly reinvented warehouses, we discover where lions and tigers roamed, when shopping first gripped Glasgow and what happens when right angles take on a more enticing shape. Join us at the corner and get ready to meet the real Full Monty.

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.
