The key to the city is yours. Happy exploring.

Buildings. Streets. Parks. Architecture. History. All open. All free. 14th - 20th September 2015

Lets Celebrate Glasgow!

Join us in September 2015 for a free festival that celebrates Glasgow’s buildings, streets, parks, architecture, history and people with a programme full of walks, tours, talks, events and more than 100 buildings open for anyone to visit. For one week only, doors are opened and you are encouraged to explore Glasgow in a new way.

The events are so varied that it was almost impossible to choose. I was like a child in a sweet shop wanting to go to them all!!!;   2014 Visitor



That’s right – we are already thinking ahead for 2015! Dates for your diary: 14th – 20th September 2015

Photography Workshops

Part of Doors Open Days®
