Art Deco architecture in Sauchiehall Street.

This morning, we joined the City Sightseeing Tour of Glasgow by ‘Hop On-Hop-Off’ Tour Bus. We joined the tour at Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum and then proceeded on a clockwise tour taking in:

  • Sauchiehall Street, Renfrew Street, George Square and Glasgow Cathedral. We alighted at the Cathedral and visited the historic building and nearby  Necropolis. At the Cathedral we were escorted around this historic, 13th century building by a local guide and then walked up to the nearby Necropolis ( city of the dead) which, due to elevation, afforded excellent views over Glasgow City. We had lunch at a nearby hotel.
