Overview

Join Sam Ellis, of Pollokshields Heritage, for a digital audio tour of Pollokshields, the original, the biggest and the best-preserved planned garden suburb in the UK. Our tour will focus on the leafy avenues of West Pollokshields where we will explore some of the finest Victorian architecture in the city and learn more about how and why these impressive homes were built and what the original vision was for their future. We’ll learn more about who commissioned them, designed them and built them and how their intricate details and impressive materials contribute to Pollokshields’s unique aesthetic.
