About Tour: The Pyramid at Anderston

Step Inside the Pyramid: Where Community and History Meet

Have you ever wondered about the unique pyramid-shaped building in the heart of Glasgow? Now’s your chance to uncover its secrets! Join us for an exclusive tour inside this architectural marvel.

Back in the 1950s, the Church of Scotland promoted constructing less hierarchical church buildings, leading to an open-plan Modern design with Brutalist traits. This vision was brought to life by the architectural firm Honeyman, Jack & Robertson, resulting in the stunning Anderson Parish Church, now known as The Pyramid at Anderston.

Completed in 1968 as part of Anderston’s redevelopment, this distinctive structure houses twenty-two rooms used as meeting and workspaces, along with three spacious community halls, including the beautiful Sanctuary space with its distinctive shape and coloured stained glasses. From 1968 to 2019, the building operated as the Anderston Kelvingrove Parish Church. In 2018, a new chapter began with the formation of The Pyramid at Anderston Trust, a community membership organisation. A year later, with a grant from the Scottish Land Fund, the Trust purchased the building, ensuring it remained a vital community hub.

In June 2020, the Trust secured a £1.1 million award from the National Lottery Community Fund, kickstarting essential renovations. GCHT also provided a grant of £90,000 to work on the iconic reinforced concrete bell tower, some of the deep concrete fascia bands, and to an area of roof that corresponds to the main entrance foyer.

Join us for a one-hour tour to discover the history, architecture, and vibrant community spirit of The Pyramid. Refreshments will be served afterward in the beautiful and atmospheric Sanctuary space.

Step inside and be part of The Pyramid’s ongoing story!
