Architectural driving and walking tour with a private guide. Appox. 8 hours or less by arrangement.


Glasgow was the "second city" of the British Empire in the nineteenth century. Trade flourished and it was highly industrialised known as the "workshop of the world". This spirit of innovation and enterprise was reflected in a fascinating range of new types of building with the verve and flair that later became known as the "Glasgow Style". Charles Rennie Mackintosh is just one of many talented architects working with new materials and new methods of building that became widely adopted everywhere.

We will drive and walk around the city stopping at architectural gems and notable buildings only now becoming acknowledged. The tour will be a good way to explore the landmarks of Glasgow city centre. We will visit the magnificent medieval Cathedral. A brief outline of the history and development of Glasgow will be included. I can suggest further excursions to take in your own time.

A Recent Review of this tour

This is our second day with Toby and his knowledge of not only history but architecture, politics and local folklore was wonderful. I would call on him again if I come back to Scotland.
