Guided walking tours of the Clyde waterfront

We operate a series of guided walking tours of Glasgow's waterfront, exploring the maritime history of the river and its modern regeneration. A fifth of all ships in the world were once built on the Clyde at its peak and while most of the industry has now gone there is still much to discover about the past, present and future of the river.

We are Clyde Docks Preservation Initiative (CDPI) - a social enterprise promoting the evolving maritime heritage of the River and Firth of Clyde. We have spent almost a decade researching the maritime heritage of the river, networking with interest groups and advocating for protection of the maritime environment and infrastructure. Our walking tours are based on this work.

Rather than purely walking lectures, our walks are an interactive guided exploration of the urban waterfront and the changes it has gone through. Participants will be encouraged to take photographs, do their own research, geotagging projects, etc.

Please note as of 23rd October 2023 we are suspending our regular scheduled walks until March 2024. At this time of year the level of demand means it is not cost effective to operate a regular schedule. Private tours are still available and times and dates can be arranged to suit. Please contact us to find out more (minimum group numbers apply).

For corporate or institutional bookings please contact us to arrange a bespoke schedule.

For your peace of mind, our walking tours are covered by 5,000,000 public liability insurance.
