Govan River Clyde waterfront

Govan Walk to the Dock

Join us for a guided walk from Water Row in Govan to the historic A-listed graving docks.

  • Hear about some of the story of the post-industrial riverside, Govan’s historic dry docks and the campaign to save them
  • See where cattle once crossed the river, where kings were once crowned and mighty ships once launched
  • See where modern maritime industry could transform the prospects of Govan

For more information about dates and times of guided walks and to book your place, please refer to our Eventbrite booking page.

Walks are for groups of up to 15 people. The format of the walks is very informal and aimed to encourage open discussion and sharing of thoughts and insights rather than just being a walking lecture. We meet near the fountain at Water Row - see the map on the right/below for directions.

Any participants under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. If you have any specific requirements or disabilities please contact us before booking.

Please note that taking part in the walks is entirely at your own risk. Sturdy footwear is recommended, as although walks are entirely on the public thoroughfare, parts of the route may be uneven. For safety reasons we will be unable to enter the actual graving dock site.

As well as our scheduled walks we can also arrange bookings for corporate parties at times to suit - for more information please email us -
