What to expect

Get off the tourist path and dive deep into the colourful characters, quirky stories and unique venues that make Glasgow a UNESCO City of Music with this entertaining, guided walking tour of the Merchant City and East End.

Walking the oldest streets of Glasgow, your two-hour tour will be led by enthusiastic musicians, fans and writers ready to regale you with all the tall tales from the city’s past and present venues, the artists who played in them and the audiences that continue to fill them with life.

Discover cherished venues such as the mighty Barrowland Ballroom and the venerable Britannia Panopticon – Britain’s oldest surviving music hall and the scene for the stage debut of comedy legend, Stan Laurel - and explore the Merchant City which has proved to be a creative stomping ground for everyone from Woody Guthrie to Billy Connolly, Simple Minds and Franz Ferdinand.

It's time to explore the stories of the veteran venues which have found a new lease of life; the fertile relationship between the city’s visual arts community and its musicians; the legendary pubs frequented by folk music giants and the newer, noisier upstarts that keep the grassroots scene growing.
