Wallace Place

Scotland PA15 1BQ, United Kingdom

Created By: Inverclyde Tourist Group


This is the west facade of the Municipal Buildings. In its centre, stairs lead up to large red doors which was the entrance for the public to pay their Council rents and rates - today's Council Tax.

Further up Wallace Place is a carriageway that runs from Cathcart Square under part of the Municipal Buildings. This allowed carriages to deposit their passengers outside one of the Town Hall doors without any risk of getting wet. Today, it is mainly a pediestrian walkway with parking spaces for the Council leaders.

Continue by walking along Wallace Place to Pin 54: Central Library.
