Glasgow is full of fascinating buildings, too many to fit into Glasgow Building Preservation Trust’s Wee Doors Open Day, so Walking Heads have teamed up with Glasgow Buildings Preservation Trust to create an audio tour to help you embark on a journey of architectural discovery as you walk round the city.
The free audio tour will give you an insight into eight historic and very different buildings: from Glasgow School of Art to Clydeport, from Glasgow Cathedral to the Glasgow Necropolis. At each stopping point experts describe the buildings, explain the Architectural heritage and tell stories about the people who designed, built, lived or worked in them. You don’t have to follow a route, just pick out points on the map, and when you reach your destination press play.
The Glasgow’s Landmarks Tour features contributions from Gordon Urquhart (Glasgow City Heritage Trust), Ranald MacInnes (Historic Scotland), Ruth Johnston (Friends of Glasgow Necropolis), Liz Davidson (Glasgow City Council, City Design), Niall Murphy (Freelance Architect), Fiona Sinclair (Glasgow Institute of Architects), Mark Bains (Mackintosh School of Architecture) and Neil Baxter (The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland).
