Heritage Trails

Heritage Trails

Take a walking tour and follow in the footsteps of the mill workers.

Largely due to Paisley people's efforts to preserve their social and cultural heritage, many local historic buildings, sites and artefacts have been saved for future generations to enjoy. It is therefore possible to walk around the town and learn about Paisley's history though seeing, touching, amd sometimes smelling tangible remnants of the past. But, do we always know where to look? Heritage trails are a great way of exploring the town, and finding out a little more about some of the sites and monuments along the way.
