Glasgow Style and Modernity

This walk will look at some of the remarkable architecture in Glasgow created in the years around 1900 when the city was transforming itself into the self-proclaimed ‘Second City of the Empire’.

Second City

This walk will examine some of the best examples of Victorian and Edwardian commercial architecture in the city. Glasgow flourished, prospered and expanded in the 19th century.

The West End

This walk explores the residential suburbs to the west of the city centre. As the city prospered, so Glasgow expanded westwards from its mediaeval core.
