The Merchants House of Glasgow
7 West George Street, G2 1BA
1877 (alterations 1912), John Burnet, and his son John Burnet Jnr
The Merchants House is a Glasgow institution, constituted in 1605. Still serving its original purpose of charitable giving to the city, visitors can learn more about its charitable work while admiring its well-preserved historic city centre offices.
We offer a unique experience with all being welcomed equally. View portraits of our Ex Lord Dean's of Guild - second citizen of the city of Glasgow, and view items from our original building dating back to 1605. A few of our Directors will be on hand to chat to about the building and the charitable work that we do. Watch our DVD which provides a further insight into the Merchants House of Glasgow. You can assist by hosting your conference, seminar, meeting, party or wedding here - all profits are returned to the charity and distributed to charities in and around the City of Glasgow.
