Overview

Langside Halls began life on Queen Street in 1847 as the first National Bank of Scotland, it was then moved & re-built in 1902 to become a new public building at its current location at the corner of Queen’s Park.

Langside Halls Trust was formed in 2013 & its aims are to develop & secure funding to fully refurbish Langside Halls & bring it up to modern standards. The Trust’s vision for the Halls is as a “community space for hire” & a locally programmed venue for cultural, social & wellbeing activities to enrich the Southside community.

The Trust, with Hoskins Architects has created this tour to guide you on a journey from the Halls’ original site to their current location. Along the way is a series of stops demonstrate how buildings have adapted to suit the needs of their communities.

Walk or cycle this virtually guided tour in one go, or in parts; or simply enjoy it from the comfort of your armchair and look at each of the buildings in a new light the next time you encounter them.
