SOLD OUT! West End Women’s Heritage Walk: West End Festival

2nd June, 2013 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


West End Festival LogoJoin us again this year at the West End Festival for our West End Women’s Heritgae Walk

This pioneering women’s heritage walk reveals a hidden history of the West End of Glasgow: pipe-smoking forewomen, revolting schoolmistresses, and the unique car made by and for women. A unique and inspiring insight into the hitherto unsung women who made the West End.

Please note that this event has now sold out. Why not book on to one of our other Women’s Heritage Walks or download our West End Heritage Walk Audio Tour in stead.

Why not visit the fantastic An Clachan Cafe in Kelvingrove Park, the perfect refreshment stop for before or after your West End Walk? A big thank  you to An Clachan for supporting the work of the Library.


This event costs £7.50 full price. You can purchase tickets direct from the library, Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 4.30pm or click here to book online.

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.

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.

If you are not able to attend the above walk then you could always download our audio tour version and do the walk at a time that suits you. Currently available in English and German.
