A FREE summer ferry service operated between Govan and Riverside in the summer of 2013. This was an 'on demand' service, providing FREE river transport to locals and visitors to Glasgow, offering a new opportunity to explore Riverside Museum, The Tall Ship and Govan Old Church and the Govan Stones. The Ferry provided a great way for families to enjoy a trip out on the Clyde and it was easily accessible from Riverside, alongside the museum and from Govan, a short walk from Govan Underground. There may be scope to provide a FREE summer service every year! Watch this space!
N.B. Govan Old Church is closed on Tuesdays and Fridays and open the rest of the week 1.00- 4.00pm
