Glasgow's Oldest House
Step back in time and discover Glasgow’s unique history with a visit to the oldest house in the city.
Provand’s Lordship was built in 1471. It was originally part of a hospital. It is one of only four medieval buildings to survive in Glasgow. The house has been extensively restored, and houses a donation of 17th-century furniture by Sir William Burrell.
Visiting Provand's Lordship provides a real flavour of what a home interior of around 1700 would have looked like.
St Nicholas Garden
Behind the house is the St Nicholas Garden, a medicinal herb garden that provides an oasis of calm. Visit the garden to see Glasgow’s renowned Tontine Faces – a series of stone masks with a fascinating past!
