Many local film fans will be aware that Glasgow served as a backdrop to Hollywood features such as WORLD WAR Z, FAST AND FURIOUS 6 and CLOUD ATLAS, but beyond the city centre has also been used for a number of independent films over the years. South of the Clyde has proven to be a versatile destination for such productions, offering as it does numerous filming locations from the picturesque to the authentically ‘inner city’. In this leisurely walking tour, we’ll be taking in some of the settings for an assortment of films shot in and around the Queens Park, Govanhill, Eglinton Toll and Laurieston neighbourhoods, including UNDER THE SKIN, AE FOND KISS and YOUNG ADAM, amongst others. Find out what was filmed on your doorstep!
Please note: This tour requires a normal level of fitness and is wheelchair accessible. Tour numbers are limited so sign up in advance by emailing email@example.com and pay cash on the day. Meet at The Shed at 13:45 to take part.
