Our sell out women’s heritage walks are back for another season. Led by our Women Make History volunteer tour guides they highlight the hidden histories of trailblazing, hardworking and ingenious women who have inhabited Glasgow over the centuries: from housewives to hawkers, artists to activists, and entrepreneurs to entertainers.

Check out our full programme of Women’s Heritage Walks here.

The Glasgow Girls of Garnethill, Saturday 27th April, 2pm to 4pm, £10/£6, Meet at the CCA


“Very friendly and well informed guides. I saw parts of Garnethill I did not know existed.” Walk participant

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.

Within Garnethill’s confined boundaries we spotlight the women who pioneered European art movements, designed banners for suffragette processions, created the first women’s library in Scotland and made Garnethill the most exciting cultural and multicultural hotspot in Glasgow.

Join our tour guides and hear about some of Glasgow’s most remarkable women, including Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh and the other Glasgow Girls, who we’ll be celebrating as part of the Mackintosh Festival.


Large print versions of the tour guides’ script are available on the day.
