Student Tours Scotland Joins The Glasgow Experience Debate
The Glasgow Experience: 'Real' Glasgow
On Wednesday 20 March 2013, Student Tours Scotland's very own, Gary Robert Brown will be taking part in a debate hosted by the Glasgow City Heritage Trust. The topic seems simple enough, "What do you think shows visitors the 'real' Glasgow"?
It's not an easy topic to discuss in a city with the coloured and chequered history that Glasgow has. However, Student Tours Scotland has a lot of experience in the area. Thousands of students from across the world come here to experience 'real' Glasgow but many leave only seeing the City Centre of this wonderful place. In 2013 we have taken hundreds of students to lesser seen parts of Glasgow including: Sighthill Park Stone Circle; Castlemilk Park and Woodlands; King's Park Golf Course (Abandoned); Richmond Park and Oatlands; Dennistoun; Hogganfield Park and many more. Students are keen to see as much of the place as possible and as such, Student Tours Scotland has ended up with students who know more about the city than most of the Glaswegians who live here.
Hopefully we can bring something unique to the debate which will also feature Peter Russell, former Principal of the City’s International Office and advisor to the Provos; Anne Mulhern, Proprietress of the Willow Tea Rooms and Michael Traynor, former taxi tour-guide from Glasgow Taxis.
