Dwarfed by haughty buildings on all sides and surrounded by statues of great Scots, George Square makes sense of poet John Betjeman’s claim that Glasgow is “the greatest Victorian city in the world.”

Named after King George III and built in 1781, George Square began life as little more than a muddy hollow used for slaughtering horses. Today, it’s surrounded by some of grandest buildings in the city, not least the imposing Glasgow City Chambers on the east side.

To Glaswegians, George Square is the city’s cultural center. Hosting concerts and events throughout the year, it comes alive during winter, when children skate around the ice rink and parents enjoy mulled wine at the Christmas market. In summer, George Square is a good place to find a bench and watch the world go by.

George Square leads to Glasgow’s famous shopping streets in the Style Mile, as well as the ritzy Merchant City district. Glasgow’s main tourist information office sits on the south side, and sightseeing buses begin their journeys here, making this a handy place to get oriented with the city.

Private Glasgow Guided Walking Tour

Private Glasgow Guided Walking Tour

Glasgow is an incredible city with a unique heart. It is famous for shipbuilding, for football and for being the Second City of the Empire, but the thing that really makes Glasgow special is her people. Your tour is led by a Glasgwegian and will give you a distinctly Glasgwegian impression of the city. Anyone can learn from a history book, but your tour guide comes armed with the stories from their aunts, grandmothers and great grandfathers and will take you beyond the guide book and deep into their world. This amazing city, in which they were born, bred and brought up, is their passion and they see it in a way that is totally personal and entirely unique. On your tour, you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with Glasgow's history, hearing about not only the famous names and faces, but also the lesser known stories of the ordinary people who made this city great and make its history special.
