    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, 2 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3NY Scotland

    This is home to the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Celtic Connections - the world's biggest winter music festival.

    While here, we time travel back and hear tales from the heyday of the Empire. A former neighbour of the Concert Hall, the Empire is long gone but its fierce reputation for having the UK's most critical and passionate audience lives on.


    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: The Pavilion Theatre, 121 Renfield Street, Glasgow G2 3AX Scotland

    The Pavillion has hosted everyone from Houdini and Charlie Chaplin to Sydney Devine, Glasgow's very own rhinestone cowboy.

    The former Odeon gets a mention here. First and foremost a cinema, it was also a stomping ground for bands like The Beatles, Little Richard and The Rolling Stones.


    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, 100 Renfrew Street, Glasgow G2 3DB Scotland

    At the Conservatoire, your guide has plenty of stories about associated hobbits, Outlander stars, Dr Who actors and even Bob Dylan, an unlikely fan of the bagpipes.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Nice 'n' Sleazy, 421 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3LG Scotland

    The tour pauses at Nice 'n' Sleazy, a big-hearted dive bar that plays an instrumental part in nurturing young talent. As well as offering the opportunity for guests to buy a refreshment, Sleazy's is where we tell visitors all the rock 'n' roll legends from the late, lamented Apollo.

    It is also where guests hear about the changing sounds of Sauchiehall Street, an area that has been the city's night-time playground for decades.


    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: King Tut's Wah-Wah Hut, 272A St. Vincent Street, Glasgow G2 5RL Scotland

    The Music Mile tour finishes at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut where you have the opportunity to follow in the early footsteps of Oasis, Blur and the Manic Street Preachers.

    Depending on access, there may be the chance to stand under the lights at King Tut’s and grab a selfie on the stage that helped launch so many great acts.

    Thanks suncream2015. Appreciate you taking the time to write a review. We're really glad you enjoyed the tour and yes, Phil loved seeing the Bowie ticket. He put it on our social media feeds. One of the best parts of doing the tours is hearing other people's stories and memories of great gigs they have seen. Thanks again.

    Brilliant walking tour this afternoon with Alison. Thought I knew the Glasgow music scene inside out but learned some history about some of my favourite venues. Fantastic value for money and already looking to book the Merchant City Tour for later in the summer.

    Hello Billy, we're so glad to hear how much you enjoyed the tour. We find that even after 4 years we still learn new stuff about the city, and you're right, you think you know your city but there's always more to hear. Fiona is a fab guide and we will pass on your kind comments to her. Glad we mentioned The Blue Nile for you! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave feedback and for coming out with us.

    My husband, who plays in a band himself, and I, enjoyed this extremely interesting musical walk very much. Although we were a somewhat large group of 30 people on that day (which seems to be unusual), which probably took something personal out of the tour, we still felt welcome
