Greenock - Glasgow & the Burrell Collection (half day)

Travelling Eastwards from Greenock brings you to Glasgow. First, drive through to the outskirts of Glasgow to visit the Burrell Collection, one of the world’s most famous art collections. It is a treasure trove of more than 8000 items ranging from ancient civilisation to the Impressionist period. The wide-ranging collection of objets d'art forming the Burrell Collection was bequeathed to the city by millionaire shipping magnate Sir Alexander Burrell in 1944. Burrell's eclectic tastes are represented by European tapestries, Chinese jade, French Impressionist paintings, Persian rugs, medieval stained glass—and even whole rooms brought here from Burrell's former home, the 16th-century Hutton Castle.

Explore at your leisure. Your guide and stewards of the gallery will be on hand to answer any of your questions.

On leaving the Burrell, head into the centre of Glasgow for a panoramic tour. Glasgow is renowned as one of the most dynamic and exciting cities in the UK. It combines the sophistication of a major European cultural capital with the history, heritage and scenic splendour of Scotland. After the coach tour (lasting around 45 minutes), guests may continue back to the ship, or stay in Glasgow to explore at their leisure (and make their own way back to Greenock either by taxi, train or ship’s shuttle bus).
