Inside stories of great Glasgow landmarks reveal changing fortunes of a dynamic city.
Brought to you by Glasgow Building Preservation Trust in collaboration with Walking Heads, this audio tour for smartphones and tablets takes you inside and around historic Glasgow landmarks – even when doors are closed.
From Glasgow Cathedral up to the Necropolis, from The Glasgow School of Art down to The Clydeport, this is a journey through changing times and shifting fortunes; history recorded in stone and steel, mahogany and (almost literally) miles of marble.
At each stop we meet experts who bring buildings to life, describing grand visions and meticulous attention to details which are the essence of all great architecture.
Starts now: the audio tour can be downloaded immediately and enjoyed whenever it suits you.
The tour is a long walk and some of it is uphill but you can stop and start whenever you like and Glasgow's Landmark's audio can also be accessed online and enjoyed from a distance as an audio/visual documentary.
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.
