The man that was Charles Rennie Mackintosh?
Decades on, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh is still revered as one of the best architectural and design genius that we are proud claim as our own. The design legacy of Mackintosh has left its imprint on buildings peppered throughout our city.
This building bears all the hallmarks of a Mackintosh designed building. Constructed just over 100 years ago the building can be viewed from the roadside but it does not open to the public.
Sadly, a fire damaged the building in 2018 and the building had to close to visitors. Nevertheless, archives and a small number of collections are still available to view by appointment.
Afternoon Tea is a special treat to enjoy at the Willow Tearooms. Step in from the hustle and bustle of the high street and relax in the elegant surroundings of Mackintosh at the Willow. Take your time as you enjoy some classic afternoon tea nibbles including scones, pastries, Victorian sponge cakes, all accompanied by the hot beverage of your choice.
A place worthy of displaying the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh must be the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. You’ll find an exhibited on some of the designers’ best work on the ground floor.
Step back in time and imagine you’re living in 1895. The Helensburgh Club has opened at 38-40 Sinclair Street, and it is the talk of the town. Today you can experience this feeling and visit, with admission from £3 p.p.
