Tenement House Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Providing a glimpse into early 1900s working-class Glasgow life, the Tenement House, restored by the National Trust for Scotland, shows how Miss Agnes Toward lived for over 50 years in the four-room home she shared with other lodgers. The Victorian flat maintains much of its original fittings, and you’ll see fascinating details, such as the old straw beds and blackened ball of soap, providing an insight into another time.
On a visit, you’ll see how an independent woman lived in a time of gas lighting (electricity wasn’t introduced to this house until 1960), and on the ground floor you’ll get to peruse Miss Toward’s extensive personal archive.
About a 10-minute walk from Sauchiehall Street’s pedestrian precinct, Tenement House is open daily from 1 to 5 p.m. in March through June, September and October. In the summer months of July and August, it is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays).
Address: 145 Buccleuch Street, Glasgow, United Kingdom G3 6QN, Scotland
