Botanic Gardens, G12 0UE
Discover a city of glass on this 10k walk from the Botanic Gardens to the Peoples’ Palace and experience the city from a new perspective.
Glasgow has some remarkable glass structured buildings - the GLASSGOW walk, which is approximately 10K, will take you through these structures, including the Kibble Palace, Glasgow Central Station, the Argyle Arcade, and the Peoples Palace. Along the way you shall pass through other significant architectural highlights including the Riverside Museum, the University of Glasgow and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. Altogether you will discover Glasgow from a radically different perspective, mapped according to these specific architectural gems. You will receive commentary as we go, and be left with a cumulative series of maps that will allow you to explore Glasgow according to other Glasgow architectural landmarks.
Sun 16th, 11am; 120 minutes
Meeting point: Botanic Gardens
On street parking available nearby
Accessibility: We will be walking on main roads and pavements, over a variety of terrains, plus we will be going through a number of buildings; individually, all buildings and the whole route should be accessible but noting that the overall walk in totality should be a consideration re access.
The walk will be taken at a pace most suitable to all - there may be faster and slower groupings, but there are staged gathering points along the way to allow everyone to come back together.
No particular restrictions other than sensible walking shoes and umbrellas - the walk is going through Glasgow's glass buildings so there is plenty of opportunity to shelter.
The walk is suitable for all ages. For children it is an opportunity to reveal the city as a place of wonder and invention.
