Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust would like to invite you to take a free tour of Maryhill Burgh Halls, learn about the history of the building, see the unique stained glass windows and other Maryhill history-related artefacts and stories, as well as getting to see what facilities are available to hire and let.

Parts of the building aren’t open to the public on a daily basis, but we are keen to give people a chance to get in for a proper look around. You will have the opportunity to join the Trust at the end of the tour.

If you have a specific area of interest we can adapt a tour to suit your needs. Please call us to discuss further.

Also available are hands on handling sessions and memories sessions by arrangement. Contact us for more information.

How to get there

You can get to the Burgh Halls in several ways...

By Car: the postcode for the Maryhill Burgh Halls is G20 8YE. Gairbraid Avenue is closed to traffic, so turn off Maryhill Road at Kelvindale Road (junction opposite the modern police station), then turn right up Burnhouse Street, and you will find Gairbraid Avenue on the right. If you miss the turn-off at Burnhouse Street, or it's closed due to roadworks, the street is like a ladder - you can turn right at the next turn-off, then turn right and drive to the end of the street to find Gairbraid Avenue.

Free on street parking is usually available in near vicinity - although please note space outside the Halls itself is very tight, so please only park in the marked bays on Gairbraid Avenue. Six dedicated disabled spaces are available directly opposite the archway entrances.

By Bus: Maryhill Road is well served by buses to and from the city centre; outside Maryhill Library, directly opposite the Burgh Halls. See www.travelinescotland.com for more details, bus numbers and times.

By Train: The nearest mainline station is Maryhill, situated about 20 minutes walk (1km, 0.6 miles) north of the Halls, straight along Maryhill Road. For more details, see www.scotrail.co.uk. Hillhead subway station is also about 20 minutes walk to the south.

By Bike: The canal forms part of National Cycle Route 754; more info atwww.sustrans.org. Bike racks can be found nearby on Maryhill Road and within our entrance courtyard behind the Fire Station Gates off Gairbraid Avenue.

By Boat: The Forth & Clyde Canal provides easy access to Maryhill and the Burgh Halls. Access on foot from the canal to the Halls can be found at the top of Burnhouse Street, and there are mooring facilities near the former White House Inn, by Lock 21. Full details can be found at Scottish Canals
