City Chambers

George Square Glasgow

The most striking building on George Square, and indeed one of the most striking in the city, is the majestic City Chambers, proudly built during the city’s industrial Golden Age. To some an overblown Victorian monstrosity (it was actually opened by the monarch in 1888), to others an elegant creation that speaks of all that was great about her reign, its architectural styles and Glasgow’s place in the Empire. All four constituent parts of the UK sit kept in check by Victoria at her feet on the imposing facade. Italian marble and ceiling frescoes set the tone for the interior. If you really want to explore the City Chambers in depth pop into the Tourist Office at the other side of George Square and ask about guided tours.
