Glasgow’s Merchant City Walking Tour

About Glasgow’s Merchant City Walking Tour

As City Heritage Officer in the 1980s, architectural historian David Martin was largely responsible for conceiving the idea of the ‘Merchant City’ as an area of historic urban conservation and renewal. On 4th August, he will take us on a two hour walk round the district giving us an insight into its original development and its more recent regeneration.

The tour will start in George Square, 2pm and spaces are limited so book early to reserve your place!

Full details and booking forms can be found here: www.ahss.org.uk

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow’s Merchant City Walking Tour are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
