East End Women's Heritage Walk

Bookings for this event have now closed. See our current programme for details of when this walk will be held again.

Join Glasgow Women’s Library’s Women Make History tour guides on our newest Women’s Heritage Walk.

Sunday 25th August, 2pm (meet at the Mercat Cross)

Researched by learners and volunteers at the Library, this women’s heritage walk uncovers the hidden heroines of Glasgow’s East End. If you are interested in finding out more about the women who worked in the Templeton factory, Suffragettes who were held in Duke Street Prison, or the woman who set up the Barras (and many more) then this is the perfect way to spend your afternoon.


Bookings for this event have now closed. See our current programme for details of when this walk will be held again.

All places must be paid for in advance as tour guides are not able to handle money on the day of the walk. Start point for the walk will be given in a confirmation email approximately 1 week prior to the walk and we will confirm once payment is received. Please check your spam or junk email folders if you have not received this in your inbox. Also, please note that the library is closed on a Saturday and Sunday so last minute bookings cannot be taken and messages will not be picked up until the Monday morning.

Unfortunately on this occasion we are unable to offer free or subsidised places on our Women’s Heritage Walks for people aged 16 plus. Children 15 and under can attend the walks for free but must be accompanied by an adult. We ask that you do not bring dogs (or other pets) along on the walks. Contact us if you are unsure about any thing, we are happy to answer any questions.

Should you need to cancel a booking for any reason please see our Women’s Heritage Walks Cancellation Policy.
