David Livingstone Centre Tours

Glasgow’s David Livingstone Centre is devoted to the famous Scottish explorer and missionary who opened up interior Africa over 150 years ago. A biographical museum dedicated to his life and work, the center is housed in Shuttle Row where Livingstone was born and raised in poverty with 23 other families back in the early 19th century.

At the museum you’ll see many items related to Livingstone’s Africa explorations, including journals, letters, navigational equipment, and dioramas of significant moments in his travels. 

The David Livingstone Centre is set in 20 acres of parkland overlooking the River Clyde, so after a visit to the museum it’s popular to take a walk through the woods along the Clyde Walkway and along to Bothwell Castle. 

Practical Info

On 165 Station Road in Blantyre, the David Livingstone Centre is open from 11am-5pm (last entry 4pm) from March 23 to December 23. The train journey to Blantyre from Glasgow Central takes 15 to 20 minutes. Entry costs £6.50 for adults, and there’s an onsite cafe at the museum.
