A Walk Through Glasgow’s History

While Tennent’s history goes back to the 1880s, and the extensive history here at Wellpark goes back centuries, we’re very fortunate to have many of Glasgow’s most significant historic landmarks right on our doorstep.

If you’re a history buff or someone who is visiting Glasgow for the first time, you can combine the magic of Glasgow’s history and the city’s most famous beer in an extraordinary Heritage tour of the area.

Getting a Sense of the City

Our experienced tour guides will take you around the most scenic locations in the oldest part of Glasgow. Enjoy the history, the stories and the banter as you explore Glasgow’s iconic landmarks such as Glasgow Cathedral, the Necropolis (right behind us), Provand’s Lordship and the Medieval Quarter (Merchant City).

On the walking trail, you will learn about William Wallace’s battles and encounter a host of colourful characters such as brewing monks, old sweetshop owners, grisly reformers, bonnie princes, the historic Barras and so much more!

Working up a Thirst

After discovering Glasgow by foot, return to the brewery to learn about our unique history at the Tennent’s Story heritage centre – the largest beer attraction in the UK! The immersive experience centres on the story of Hugh Tennent and the first brew of Tennent’s Lager in 1885. We’ll take you on a monumental and historic animated journey of the role beer has played right where you’re standing. You’ll see authentic artefacts gathered from the first days of brewing at Wellpark in 1556 through to some of the most important symbols from Tennent’s illustrious history.

After that, you’ll get a special guided tour of the brewery to see how we make the country’s favourite beer.

Your own Pint of Glasgow’s Finest

No Tennent’s tour would be complete without trying Scotland’s favourite beer! The tour ends with a complimentary pint of Tennent’s Tank Beer - a brewery-fresh pint of Tennent’s served straight from impressive copper tanks filled with unpasteurised liquid straight from the brewery floor.
