Great way to see the huge impact Scottish shipbuilding had on the World. The view from the top of the crane was brilliant and everything is very well done and laid out, from buying your ticket, the minibus and the the staff were all so interesting and accommodating.

My son and I visited the Titan Crane on 30.08.2014 slightly overcast and breezy. No problem finding the office where we were taken by minibus to the Titan listening to a pre-recorded brief. Nice, clean grounds and the choice of taking the bus back or walking. We were met off the bus and given a talk about the history of... More

The Titan Crane is located on the banks of the River Clyde on the site of what was John Brown's shipyard, where the famous "Queens" were built and is now the home of Clydebank College. There is a Visitor Centre where there you can watch a short video, see plans, photos and models and get a coffee and a snack.... More

Decided to do this on the way back from the Commonwealth Games. It was just a shame we chose such a dull day as the view from the top of the crane on a clear day must be brilliant. Not the easiest place to find as it's quite well signposted on the way out of Glasgow but the signs are... More

What a great view from the top of the Titan crane, all that remains of John Browns famous shipyard which built the Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth and QE2, as well as the battleship HMS Hood. The staff (probably all volunteers) are helpful and friendly. Our guide Gordon was a mine of information and so enthusiastic, he had worked for the... More

The crane is a grand old powerhouse of days gone by. I really enjoyed going up and see it from a crane operators point of view. Walking the jib is an absolute thrill, but judging by the faces of some, maybe not for everyone. Respect to its builders and operators. The small exhibition below gives you an impression of the...

Me and the mrs paid a visit to the titan crane today. Firstly the signage leading to the crane was very poor and the layout of the area confusing. Eventually after going around in circles for 10 minutes we came across a small office the size of a portakabin. This was the ticket office, and what actually happens is that... More

Having had one bit of shipbuilding nostalgia in the morning at the Denny shipbuilding testing tank at Dumbarton (a hidden gem, which I've also given 5*s on TripAdvisor), we headed for another, similar attraction at Clydebank: the Titan Crane. If you like heavy metal, and the rich history that goes with places like this (this is where the various Queen... More
