Walking the oldest streets of Glasgow, our Merchant City Music – Past and Present tour covers cherished venues such as the mighty Barrowland Ballroom and the venerable Britannia Panopticon – Britain’s oldest surviving music hall.

The Merchant City has proved to be a creative stamping ground for everyone from Stan Laurel to Billy Connolly, Simple Minds and Franz Ferdinand.

This tour tells the story of the veteran venues which have found a new lease of life; the fertile relationship between the city’s visual arts community and its musicians; the legendary pubs frequented by folk music giants, and the newer, noisier upstarts that keep the grassroots scene growing.

This tour finishes at Mono Café Bar where customers can enjoy a 25% discount on food on production of tour ticket.

Join Glasgow Music City Tours as we lift the lid on the sights and sounds of the Merchant City.
