Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Begin your leisurely, half-day exploration of Glasgow at your pier where you will join a knowledgeable guide and board your motorcoach. Then, follow the River Clyde for your 45-minute drive from Greenock to Scotland's largest city.

Your narrated panoramic tour surveys Glasgow's highlights such as Tolbooth Tower built in 1627 to house the city's council chamber and administrative headquarters. Also view Glasgow Green (the oldest of the city's parks gifted by Bishop Turnbull in 1450) and Kelvingrove Park, created in 1852 by noted English gardener Sir Joseph Paxton.

In Kelvingrove Park, you will disembark and tour the world-famous Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. This imposing red sandstone Victorian structure is one of Glasgow's landmark buildings and the most visited museum in the United Kingdom outside of London. It features ever-changing contemporary exhibits as well as dinosaurs, suits of armor, weaponry and treasures from around the world.

Visit Cathedral Square for a view of the majestic Glasgow Cathedral, the only cathedral in Scotland to have survived the Reformation intact. This stunning 12th-century medieval church houses one of the finest post-war collections of stained glass windows in Britain.

Have your cameras at the ready as your tour guide accompanies you on a stroll past Provand's Lordship, the only house to survive from the medieval city. Dating from 1471, the city's oldest house features a pitched roof, crow-stepped gables and armorial panels.

Nearby stands an imposing stone building that houses the St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, the only public museum dedicated to examining all the world's major religious faiths.



Following your exploration of Glasgow's highlights, board your motorcoach and contemplate your fascinating and educational adventure during the ride back to your Princess ship at Greenock.
