Joined my second music tour of Glasgow at the weekend, and enjoyed it just as much as the last one, back in January. It's a pity that so many of the iconic venues in Glasgow are now demolished or have been damaged by fire.More

Thank you for your lovely review lizwyper. We do always order sunshine but sometimes it's not on the menu...the Panopticon is indeed a treat, we are lucky to have such amazing cultural heritage in Glasgow. Looking forward to seeing you on the Music Mile.
