The Queen’s Baton Relay arrives in Glasgow on 20 July 2014 for the final four days of its momentous journey. Travelling 190,000 kilometres over 70 nations and territories and relayed by thousands of people throughout the Commonwealth, the baton’s journey ends in the Host City of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The People’s Palace will host the starting line for this fantastic event, before the baton journeys through Glasgow. Visiting the iconic landmarks that make the city famous, the baton will be cheered past the Gallery of Modern Art, George Square, Glasgow Cathedral and the Mitchell Library.
Glasgow’s west end will play host to the second day of the event, taking in venues including Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the Botanic Gardens and the Finnieston Crane.
On the penultimate day of the relay, the baton will travel to the south side of Glasgow, past the Burrell Collection, Tramway and the Citizens Theatre.
