Industrial Heritage Tours Glasgow
Welcome to Hidden Heritage Tours. We offer walking tours and cycling tours around Glasgow’s industrial heritage sites and some of its lesser (and better) known tourist attractions:
- Tobacco Lords Tour – a two hour walking tour
- Docklands Discovery Tour – a two hour cycling tour
- City Sights Tour – a half day cycling tour
- Shipbuilding Tour – a full day cycling tour
Hidden Heritage Tours is currently on tour in Australia, therefore, our tours won’t be available in 2017 or 2018. Please come back in 2019.
We hope you will join us and learn about Glasgow’s fascinating story. From its early beginnings as a small farming and linen making town, to its rise to fortune as Europe’s main tobacco entrepot, to how the wealth created from this business helped the city establish itself as an industrial powerhouse – producing everything from engines to locomotives to ships.
Through a series of historical tours, Hidden Heritage Tours will explain Glasgow’s story, showing you how the city developed, what happened after different industries fell into decline and how it affected the city’s skyline and people. You will see parts of the city you wouldn’t normally see as well as many of its major tourist attractions.
Whether you’re a local or a visitor, you’ll never look at Glasgow in quite the same way again.
