Walmer Crescent, situated in Cessnock, Glasgow, Scotland, consists of a curved row of spacious tenement flats and houses, designed by the architect Alexander Thomson and built between 1857 and 1862. The dwellings were originally occupied by rich merchants and businessmen. There is now a row of single storey shops where the front gardens used to be.

The straight line of cream coloured sandstone tenements in Paisley Road West face Walmer Crescent. These tenements were built from 1865 onwards, and like Walmer Crescent they are three storeys high.

The Alexander 'Greek' Thomson Society is based at number 7 Walmer Crescent.

    I love the shape and style of this crescent, but Externally a bit run down on some of the buildings, its a shame shops have been constructed where once were gardens, they must have been very grand residences in their day.
