Led by our Women Make History volunteer tour guides, our sell out women’s heritage walks 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.

Pick up a Stamp as you Stomp loyalty card, do all 6 walks and get a special Women Make History treat! Large print versions of the tour guides’ script are available on the day.

Necropolis Women’s Heritage Walk, Sunday 7th July, 2pm to 4pm, £10/£6, Meet at Cathedral Square

Take a stroll through this atmospheric Victorian cemetery while our tour guides bring back to life the notorious and forgotten women buried there. This is a hilly walk but the insights on women’s history and the views across Glasgow are spectacular!

“Excellent way to spend afternoon and well worth the ticket cost: will be back!” – Walk participant
