Glasgow City Chambers
Updated: May 17, 2020
The City Chambers is probably the most magnificent building in Glasgow, and one of the most impressive buildings I have ever seen. Mosaic floors, marble stairs and walls, sculptures, wood decorated rooms and salons, large banquet hall, ceiling decorated with gold leaf, and stained glass dome - all merge in beautifully harmoniously and impart a sense of dignity and prestige.
I took the free public guided tour, conducted twice a day at 10:30 and 14:30 Mon-Fri. Private visitors who are not joining the tour cannot see all the floors, so I highly recommend to come on time for the visit.
Lucky me, without planning, I came here for the second time - all the conference members (spouses included) were invited to a buffet dinner in the City Chambers, in the presence of the current Lord Provost, which is the local version of Mayor.
