Britannia Panopticon in Glasgow

Glasgow’s Britannia Panopticon is the world’s oldest surviving music hall. It opened in the late 1850s.

One of Britannia Panopticon’s claims to fame is that the sixteen year old Stan Laurel (of Laurel and Hardy) made this first stage appearance there.

There’s plenty of memorabilia to see including costumes, musical instruments, photos and posters.

There are still shows and movie screenings at Britannia Panopticon. I’d advise you to wrap up warmly if you attend, as there’s no heating in the building.

You can visit the Britannia Panopticon Tuesdays to Saturdays, between noon to 5pm, but do check before visiting in case there is an event on the day which you are planning to visit.

It’s fee to enter, but a donation is requested,
