Provand’s Lordship is the only house in Glasgow to survive from the medieval city, which makes it the oldest house in town. The city centre of Glasgow has changed several times during different periods of industrial & commercial development. Provand’s Lordship only survived as the result of a preservation Society who worked to save it after all the other buildings around it had been demolished.

In Scotland you can find several examples of castles and palaces from the medieval period, however it is rare to find such a well preserved example of a domestic building from the 1400’s.

The ground floor and first floor have items of antique furniture that date from the same period as the building, but some of the rooms are quite bare. The appeal of the building is the fact that so many of the building’s original features have been retained. With a little imagination you can appreciate how it might have felt to have lived here in the 1400’s.

If you are visiting Glasgow Cathedral, then it’s worth making a visit to Provand’s Lordship, especially as it's free!
