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.

There's lots going on at Fairfield Heritage Centre. Get the latest Fairifeld news and find out what's on via our EVENTS section.

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