City Centre Murals
The trail took me to areas of Glasgow that I did not know existed. I felt safe throughout my visit and enjoyed the beautiful artworks. What a great way to see the city and delve a little deeper into its past as well. I hope there will be further additions to this fantastic attraction, so I may revisit again.

It was a great way to see Glasgow and even though we live in Glasgow we loved seeing our city a different way. The Murals are fab and even though we must have passed many of them while driving you see them in more detail. Highly recommend this tour.
– Resident, Glasgow
The mural art in this town is outstanding, unlike anything I’ve seen. I’m a huge tiger fan so had to see #9 (tiger right on the river walk) but they are all amazing

The trail takes you through much of the city and large parts of the trail are walkable in a couple of hours. The art is absolutely fantastic

If you are in Glasgow this walking trail is a must do. The sheer size of some of the murals takes your breath away.

The Mural Trail
The City Centre Mural Trail features a diverse range of arts set within one easy walking area. The huge range of artwork on display has something to suit all tastes – conservative to radical, quirky to bizarre.
The murals have been produced on buildings, vacant shop units, and on hoardings around vacant land. The first art work was produced in 2008 and this portfolio of completed works has expanded since. Find out more on this YouTube video.
