A pre-arranged pickup at 10:00am will start with a drive down to Glasgow Green to the Peoples Palace, Commonwealth Fountain and Nelson’s Monument. Next stop – the ‘Oldest house’ in Glasgow built in 1471, across the road you will be encouraged to explore Glasgow Cathedral, a stunning building where many scenes of ‘Outlander’ were filmed. Directly behind the Cathedral we will briefly explore the Necropolis, where you can have the opportunity to take some fabulous pictures of Glasgow City.
Adjacent to the Cathedral we will be visiting St Mungo’s Museum of religious art, embracing all religions of the world from a Zen garden to Islamic Calligraphy, before heading to the internationally famous Glasgow University, aspects of which were inspired for the filming of Hogwarts in Harry Potter films. Within the university itself, you can visit the oldest museum in Scotland (1807) – the Hunterian Museum, many collections are on display from Scientific, Historical to Anatomy displays.
Close by is Kelvingrove Art Galleries, openened in 1901 , here you will have the oppertunity to grab a coffee and a snack, before exploring the 22 galleries over 3 floors. Lastly, the award winning Transport Museum has to be on every Glasgow tour’s agenda; Over 3,000 objects on display with 90 interactive touch screens showing films, memories and more. Outside is the sailing ship Glenlee, that’s circumnavigated the globe 4 times! Built in 1896 it’s worth a ‘wee peek’. From here we will stop for photo opportunities of the Finnieston Crane and the Squinty Bridge on the River Clyde.
The driver at this point will drop you back in the city at a place of your choice.
