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.

Glasgow Girls of Garnethill, Sunday 18th August, 2pm to 4pm, £10/£6, Meet at the CCA

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.

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

See all our upcoming heritage walks here.

Meeting Point: We meet outside the CCA on Sauchiehall Street. Please do not arrive without having booked your place in advance as tour guides are not able to take payment, and the walk may be full. Bookings close on the Friday prior to the women’s heritage walk.


This walk is now fully booked. This event is open to all. There are two ticket options for this event: a £10 ticket and a £6 ticket. Our walks raise funds for the Library. Please choose the ticket which you feel most able to pay. We offer the £6 ticket if you are a Friend of GWL. All places must be paid for in advance as tour guides are not able to handle money on the day of the walk. Select the number of tickets you want to book below, or come in to the Library to book.

The week before the walk we will email all those who’ve booked with information including the meeting point for the walk. Please check your spam or junk email folders if you have not received this in your inbox.

We ask that you do not bring dogs other than guide dogs along on the walks. Contact us if you are unsure about anything, we are happy to answer any questions.
