Service Update – Coronavirus

Heritage Centre

Update 20 April 2021

Renfrewshire Leisure’s gyms, swimming pools, libraries and heritage centre will reopen from Monday, April 26th.

The announcement comes after the Scottish Government today formally confirmed that the region will drop down to Covid-19 level three restrictions from that date.


Our popular Heritage Centre boasts an impressive collection of items and information which charts the stories of the people and places of Renfrewshire from the earliest of times to the present day.

It will re-open with a series of health and social distancing measures in place to protect visitors and members of staff.

All visitors are strictly required to pre-book their attendance and wear face coverings. Bookings, which are in two-hour slots, the first starting at 10am and the last finishing at 4pm, must be arranged by emailing or by calling 0141 618 5375.

Research requirements will be discussed ahead of arrival, where people will be allocated a specific table to use. Required resources will be placed on these prior to arrival. No further items can be added during a visit. Face coverings must be worn.

All resources will be quarantined for 72 hours after every use.
