Subcrawl
A Cross-Section of the City for the Price of a Pint

The Subcrawl is a tour of Glasgow’s architectural and cultural highlights using the Subway. The size and extent of the Subway means it offers a great opportunity to see a wide cross-section of the city within a day. The Subcrawl exposes the fullest array of art, architecture, culture and people Glasgow has to offer and, by purchasing a ‘Discovery Ticket’, all for the equivalent of the price of a pint.

This website outlines the variety of activities in close proximity to the underground loop, including an itinerary that could fill one or two days. Walks between stations give an insight into built heritage with stops along the way revealing the city’s personality and vibrancy in more depth. The itinerary also includes a number of bars where you can stop for a quick refreshment and experience Glasgow’s famous hospitality.

The Subcrawl is an exciting and alternative way to enjoy the city and we hope it brings you a day to remember.

All the best,
The New Glasgow Society and Dress for the Weather

 

General Subway Information

The Glasgow subway was built between 1891 and 1896, making it the third oldest subway in the world. It started
life as two 3.35m diameter tunnels forming a 6.5 mile loop and connecting 15 stations with cars pulled by cables.
The subway has evolved and is now electrified, although it has never been extended from it’s original loop.

Current renovation plans will see the Subway’s third re-incarnation – our hope is that this important piece of infrastructure maintains its charm.
