From the bustle of Sauchiehall Street to quiet and leafy back streets, this bohemian enclave is full of surprises and has been home to many remarkable women who have made Garnethill one of the most exciting cultural and multicultural hotspots in Glasgow.

More information about this and other GWL Women’s Heritage Walks, including downloadable maps and audio tours, is available here and you can see all our upcoming heritage walks here.

Interesting and engaging from start to finish.  Enjoyed hearing from all the guides. Their enthusiasm really comes across.” – Heritage Walk participant

Covid-19 information: We are reducing the number of bookings for this event to ensure that social distancing is possible while not being too far away from each other! We will communicate any further health and safety information (along with the meeting point) closer to the event.
