As spring returns, so do our ever-popular women’s heritage walks.  Led by our volunteer tour guides, they show Glasgow’s neighbourhoods in a new light, making visible the hidden and overlooked contributions women have made to the city.

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

Women of the Necropolis Heritage Walk, Saturday 8th May, 2pm to 4pm, £10/£6

Our guides can’t wait to introduce some of the notorious and forgotten women buried in this atmospheric Victorian cemetery. This is a hilly walk but the views across Glasgow and insights on women’s history are spectacular!

I loved the walk; very well-researched and well-presented and a great fun way to spend an afternoon.” – Previous walk participant

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.
