Women of the Merchant City Walk (Launch 2009)Uncover the Merchant City’s hidden history during this walking tour around Glasgow’s cosmopolitan hub.

Join Glasgow Women’s Library tour guides as we uncover the female stars that stud the fabric of this famous quarter. Scandal, vice, radicalism, regeneration and revival are topics highlighted by our original tour.

Merchant City Women’s Heritage Walk on Sunday 17th April from 2pm to 4pm we have changed the time of the walk so that it now takes place from 11am to 1pm.


This walk is now fully booked. Many thanks for your interest, we hope you’re able to join us on another walk soon.

We offer subsidised places at £6 for students, people on a low income, unemployed or those in receipt of benefit and Friends of GWL. Children 15 and under can attend the walks for free but must be accompanied by an adult.

All places must be paid for in advance as tour guides are not able to handle money on the day of the walk.

Please check your spam or junk email folders if you have not received this in your inbox. Also, please note that the library is closed on a Saturday and Sunday so last minute bookings cannot be taken and messages will not be picked up until the Monday morning.

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