Join me on a tour along the River Clyde. We will walk along a regenerated stretch of river close to the city centre. There is no more shipbuilding here today, but we might see the Queen Mary, which is here under restoration and maybe the PS Waverly, the last seagoing passenger-carrying paddle steamer in the world. We will see modern architecture such as the BBC building by David Chipperfield architects from 2007. We will also look at the Armadillo building and the Hydro arena, both designed by the architects of Forster & Partners and both part of the Scottish Event Campus. Furthermore, we will see the Glasgow Tower from 2001, the Science Centre and the amazing Finnieston Crane from 1932; now a symbol of the city’s engineering heritage. From 1 -12 November of this year, the eyes of the world will be on this part of the city, when Glasgow hosts the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) at the Scottish Event Campus. An estimated 30,000 delegates from around the world are expected to attend COP26 in Glasgow. This includes thousands of official negotiators, representing 197 different countries in the talks.
