See Glasgow like never before with Invisible Cities, the award-winning social enterprise that trains people who have experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city.
You will meet your guide at Glasgow Green and the site of the last public hanging (discover what for!) You will travel through the Trongate and see hidden historical signs scattered through the city but will also pass by other social enterprises along the way. The tour will end on Buchanan street, where you will learn how the city was built on the back of plantation owners and slave trade.
Sales from the tour will support the work Invisible Cities does in their local community, supporting people who have experienced homelessness.
