Glasgow Green and People's Palace

If you would like to find out more about the history of Glasgow and its people, then a visit to the People's Palace in Glasgow Green is not to be missed because it tells the story of the city of Glasgow and Glaswegians from the middle of the 18th century to the end of the 20th century.

Glasgow Green is the city's oldest park, with a history that dates back to the 15th century. Located in the east of the city on the banks of the River Clyde, it has seen many changes over the centuries and was the scene of a number of historic events. In more recent years it has been used as an open-air music venue, and is also home to the world pipe band championships.

There are a number of interesting landmarks in Glasgow Green, including a monument to Lord Admiral Nelson, a fountain commemorating William Collins - a figure from the temperance movement, and the Doulton Fountain, built in honour of Queen Victoria, that now stands outside the People's Palace.

The People's Palace was first opened in 1898 to be a cultural centre for the people of the East End of Glasgow. Since the 1940s it has been Glasgow's social history museum offering an amazing insight into the way in which Glaswegians lived and worked in the past. Attached to the museum is the Winter Garden, an elegant glasshouse where visitors can enjoy some afternoon tea amid the tropical plants.
