The John Brown shipyard at Clydebank was perhaps the most famous of all the Clyde shipbuilders.
Both large liners and warships have been launched here. You can
now enjoy a panoramic view of Clydeside from the top of the Titan Crane. A
lift, rather than the endless stairs the crane operators used,
whisks you up to the engine house and an exhibition. The hammerhead
crane, overlooking the fitting-out basin, is an apt symbol of
Clydebank's shipbuilding fame and resilience.
Clydebank Museum is located at the Town Hall and contains
changing displays of the history of the area.
