Walking group walk along a pavement surrounded by trees.

Walking group walk along a pavement surrounded by trees.Join women from history, such as Mary Barbour and Agnes Dollan, on this pioneering women’s heritage walk that reveals the hidden histories of Glasgow’s West End: from pipe-smoking forewomen to revolting schoolmistresses.

Our tour guides will share with you a unique and inspiring insight into the hitherto unsung women who made the West End.

Women of the West End Heritage Walk on Saturday 14th May, 2pm to 4pm.


This event is now fully booked. We launch our summer programme of events, women’s heritage walks, and exhibitions on Thursday 12th May so please check back to our website then, or come to visit us at the library for our Programme Launches.

Tickets must be booked in advance. This event costs £10 full price. Select the number of tickets you want to book below, or come in to the Library to book.

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. If you are eligible for a subsidised place select the subsidised ticket below, or come in to the Library to book.

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. 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.

Should you need to cancel a booking for any reason please see our Women’s Heritage Walks Cancellation Policy.
