About Tom Shields: 111 Places in Glasgow That You Shouldn’t Miss

Glasgow was once known as the Second City of the Empire whose industrial success, merchant city along with architectural and cultural magnificence hid a darker side of urban poverty and squalor.

Today the heavy industry is long gone, and 21st-century Glasgow is a vibrant, culturally diverse, and stylish centre for the arts and learning.

With a wealth of insider local knowledge and engaging anecdotes, Tom Shields explores surprising corners of this great city, how the people made Glasgow and how Glasgow made its people.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Tom Shields: 111 Places in Glasgow That You Shouldn’t Miss are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
