The talented walking guides reveal Glasgow's vibrant arts scene and bring architecture alive with the story of Mackintosh's Glasgow!

Tour starts at 6pm and costs £17.50

Umbrellas/ponchos will be provided, just in case it’s a bit dreich*!

Following the tour there is a meal at Urban Bar and Brasserie. The meal is booked for 7.30pm and is payable at the time (based on your choice).
