Guided Riverside Tours (including Whisky Distillery Tour): Saturday 23rd and Friday 29th of March.

To help delegates to savour the magical spirits of Glasgow, we are providing two guided tours of the Clydeside area of Glasgow. In additional to a tour of the Clydeside Whisky Distillery, there will be volunteers to take you for a walk around the riverside area. You will be able to get into the nearby riverside transport museum, where entry is free, as well as walk around the shores of the riverside. Then, we will walk towards the SEC and the Hydro area, near our banquet venue. The area is popular for events, concerts and coffee shops. From there people can explore the Finnieston area, which is full of pubs, restaurants and coffee shops.

To join us on one of the riverside tours you just need to purchase a ticket for entry into the Clydeside Whisky Distillery Tour. You should buy your Clydeside Whisky Distillery Tour ticket here for either Saturday 23rd March (1:30-2:30pm) or Friday 29th March (12:20-13:20pm).
