Given evolving public health considerations, the Fairfield Heritage team have taken a difficult decision to postpone public access to the Fairfield Heritage visitor centre until further notice.


Doors Open Days Digital Festival

Monday, 26th October 2020


Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis the annual Glasgow Doors Open Days went digital this year, The Fairfield’s Doors Open film below featured in the digital festival and is introduced by Pat Cassidy of Govan Workspace who brought the building back from its potential demise. This is followed by a series of sound bites from some of our volunteers who keep the history alive and share the stories of the great achievements of this world famous shipyard.

Other films featured in the Glasgow Doors Open Days Digital Festival can be viewed at the following link: DOD 2020 Programme.

Unfortunately due to the uncertainty around the coronavirus and in consultation with our team of volunteers, we have decided to close Fairfield Heritage until further notice. Please keep check back for updates!

Between the mid-nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the heyday of shipbuilding on the Clyde, Govan was at the centre of the industry.

Whatever your age or experience we can offer a range of learning opportunities. From education groups to community visits.

We are looking for volunteers. To find out more about the huge variety of opportunities to support us, go to Get Involved in the Heritage site.

Once described as the jewel in the crown of Govan, the restored building provides a magnificent venue for all for all kinds of events.
