About

An audio walking tour through Glasgow's musical, social and cultural landscape. This app for smartphones and tablets explores buildings and streets full of live music.

Glasgow Music Tour is an audio walking exploring one of the world's greatest music cities. It's a magnificent marathon but you can stop and start whenever and wherever you like.

In Britain's first UNESCO City of Music, there are strong connections between music, street culture, buildings and the spaces between.

So our guide Jim Gellatly takes you up side streets and down underground, through concert halls, theatres, reinvented cinemas, warehouses and fine old bars.

We pass The Chateau in a tenement made famous by Franz Ferdinand, delve into the grand old music hall Britannia Panopticon that launched Stan Laurel's career, and visit the beautiful B Listed Art Deco O2 Academy. We peel many layers of places like the Barrowland Ballroom, Tron Theatre and The Garage, and find beneath Cineworld a legend refusing to die. And of course we walk along the Clyde now transformed by new landmarks of post-industrial Glasgow.

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.
