Govanhill was at one time the beating heart of industrial Glasgow. The iron and steel produced here, and the ships and trains built here, fuelled a revolution and helped forge a city and an empire. The industrial days have long gone but Govanhill remains one of the most vibrant and diverse communities in Glasgow.
On this guided walk, find out about the history, heritage and culture of a remarkable community and some of the people from around the world who have made their home here: the miners, the iron workers and the shipbuilders, the rifle regiment that became a football team, cinemas and roller-skating rinks, churches, mosques, synagogues, circuses and swimming pools.Check it out!
