Ann Laird leads a walk through the glorious Victorian era of Byres Road. In 1850, it was a simple country track. A brief 40 years later, a busy and fashionable city street offering every amenity to thousands of Victorian residents: churches, shops, stabling for horses, tram services, the new underground system, the Western Baths Club, the University of Glasgow and the Western Infirmary.
Get a ticket in advance from Barretts Newsagent, 263 Byres Road from May 5. This tells you where to start the walk. All tickets £7.
