You’ll get everything – detailed directions, maps, clues (with answers in the back!), and interesting snippets about the history of Glasgow and the people that have shaped it.

https://www.curiousabout.co.uk/glasgow.html and explore in your own time. One booklet is enough for four people of all ages to enjoy.
Two walks are included in the booklet, the 2nd starts where the first finishes.
Walk 1. Central Station to George Square - 1.75 miles / 2.8 kms
Starting at Glasgow’s busiest, but historic central station this walk wriggles its way around a succession of streets before ending at George Square, centre of the city. Along the way you’ll gain an excellent feel for what makes Glasgow tick – unique shops, eateries and drinking places; beautifully ornate buildings; hidden alleyways; stories of its bygone past; museums, art galleries and statues. A wonderful place to explore and enjoy!
Walk 2. George Square to Cathedral - 1.5 miles / 2.4 kms
From the centre of the city this walk wends its way round some quieter areas, with plenty of heritage and points of interest to enjoy. There’s an historic graveyard to explore, a variety of restaurants to sample in the original merchants' marketplace, a solitary steeple to admire, a medieval garden to relish, an amazing and unique Victorian cemetery to astound, and a 12th century cathedral to inspire you!
