A Thriving City – The History of Glasgow

This is a tale of two towns … the stone built religious heart of Glasgow in the north of the town and the bustling burgh in the south.

Medieval Glasgow began with the building of it’s Cathedral in 1119 – today the landscape of the buildings such as the Old Pedagogy, Bishop’s Castle, Old College and the Friaries, which once dominated the High Street, now lie beneath Glasgow’s Victoria architecture and new developments.
To showcase some of the area’s rich heritage we have installed several Heritage Banners, Plaques and Panels along the length of the street. This trail provides a glimpse of this hidden past by showing you the people, places and events which took place along the street across 1500 years.
