Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is the fourth-oldest university in the English-speaking world. Originally located on High Street in the city centre near Glasgow Cathedral, in 1870 it moved to the stunning collection of buildings perched upon Gilmorehill today, where it continues to watch over the bustling city and picturesque tenements of Glasgow’s West End.
This walking tour will take you on a fascinating journey around some of the university’s most significant spots - from philosopher Thomas Reid’s tombstone and the atmospheric cloisters to the very same staircase Lord Kelvin would take from his house to his laboratory - whilst discovering the connections of James Watt, Adam Smith and Isabella Elder whose names are inscribed on the university’s Memorial Gates.
Tours leave the East Undercroft near the University Visitor Centre Tuesday - Sunday 2pm.
Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite in advance of the tour on by credit/debit card at the Welcome Point McIntyre Building or to the guide just before the tour departs.
Maximum number on the tours will be 20
