Glasgow Music City Tours

Glasgow Music City Tours explore the city’s most notable venues, and bring alive the stories of the legendary performers who have stayed, played, and made music in the UK’s first UNESCO City of Music. Glasgow’s diverse venues have always played a vital part in fuelling the city’s creative sonic boom. Our guided walking tours map out the musical landmarks from long gone, much missed icons like the Apollo to the hip hangouts of the current musical fraternity.

**At present, we do not have access to Britannia Panopticon. We can tell you lots of great stories about it but, at present, we cannot take you inside. We will update this information as regularly as we can. 

This guided walking tour of Merchant City and the East End is led by enthusiastic music fans and writers. This Glasgow walking tour includes concert venues both old and new along with stories of the artists and audiences that helped shape Glasgow’s amazing cultural life.
