Provand's Lordship

3 Castle Street
Central Scotland
G4 0RB

Step back in time and discover a piece of Glasgow's history with a visit to the only medieval house in Glasgow. Bishop Muirhead built Provand's Lordship as part of St Nicholas' Hospital in 1471. Since then it has been a manse, an alehouse and even a sweetshop.

For over 500 years it has watched the changing fortunes of the city and nearby Cathedral.

Behind the house is the St Nicholas Garden. Designed in 1995, this medicinal herb garden is a haven of peace and tranquillity.

The Provand's Lordship is the oldest house in Glasgow and has a magnificent collection of historic Scottish furniture.

  • Gift shop in St Mungo Museum
