We'll meet at one of Glasgow's best micro-breweries (and voted Glasgow's no1 bar) before heading to Glasgow's oldest building (Glasgow Cathedral) and the nearby Necropolis, which is Glasgow's own version of the city of the dead. Wandering towards Glasgow's first street (High Street) you'll hear about Glasgow's involvement with IRA fugitives, we'll see modern street art of Glasgow's patron saint…

What else you should know

The tour is a gentle pace and for groups of people booking together, we can be creative with using taxis instead of walking some of the stretches.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
A very Glasgow treat

What to bring

Waterproof or umbrella and shoes you can walk in.

Where you'll be

Glasgow's best micro-brewery (why is the Drygate brewery so called?) Glasgow Cathedral and Glasgow Necropolis, Glasgow's first street and a western style shoot out, St Mungo's Mural, Glasgow Cross and tollbooth gallows, Glasgow Green "Scotch washing", The People's Palace and Nelson's Monument, the River Clyde's cluthas and back to George Square, the home of Glasgow Council for a well earned lunch.
