Glasgow: The Dark Side Tour

About Glasgow: The Dark Side Tour

SPECIAL HALLOWEEN EVENT 2023 - limited tickets available so book early, it's sold out every year!

The perfect way to feel some spooky vibes on the Halloween weekend and explore the real dark side of Glasgow.

Uncover Glasgow's secrets and skeletons; from unsolved true crime murders and tales of notorious prison inmates, to grave robbing and Glasgow’s foundations as a city built on the back of slavery. This 1.5 hour special event tour will bring our dark past into light as you discover a unique side to this iconic city.

A city well-known for its turbulent past, Glasgow has a lot of secrets. Built by industry, shaped by its working class, and run by gangs operating out of ice-cream vans, there's so much to learn from Glasgow's dark history. This 1.5 hour tour with a local guide will take you on a walk in the darker side of our history, some centuries ago, some decades ago, and some still happening in the city today. You never know what you might encounter this Halloween!

Tour highlights:

> Necropolis' woman in white
> The last hanging in Scotland
> The inspiration behind Frankenstein
> Grave robbers
> The Gorbals vampire

... and much more!
