Glasgow Royal Concert Hall steps, 2 Sauchiehall St, G2 3NY
Get away for your desk and get active at lunch time by having a gander down the upper part of Buchanan Street with Niall Murphy, Deputy Director of Glasgow City Heritage Trust.
Please note the tour lasts approximately 50 mins. With its superb Late Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and early 20th Century commercial architecture Buchanan Street is arguably Glasgow's best street and is recognised through numerous accolades. Highlights include a little slice of Italian fascist architecture; a Testimonial which turns a corner German style; Sir JJ Burnet’s Athenaeum and Athenaeum Theatre; see Glasgow’s ‘Anything you can do I can do better’ moment; a Venetian palace with some very stern keystones; why Plagiarism is not a good strategy, especially when you get caught; and, Glasgow’s Versace moment.
