We will meet you at your hotel or Airbnb in Glasgow and whisk you by car to our first destination for coffee, the Kelvingrove Galleries, which have a great section showcasing Mackintosh designs. Our second stop, driving via Scotland Street School, will be The House for an Art Lover in a delightful parkland setting, constructed using original Mackintosh designs. There we will have a fabulous two course lunch before taking you round the House which has been beautifully developed to show the world of Mackintosh and art nouveau at its very best. Our third and final stop will be at the fabulously re-created Willow Team Rooms in Sauciehall Street for a "cuppa" in the Mackintosh rooms. Only opened in 2018 they are a painstaking recreation of the designs that Mackintosh developed for the original tea rooms. We believe that experiencing Mackintosh, learning a little from an enthusiastic. very knowledgeable experienced facilitator whilst enjoying fabulous Scottish fayre is a must do day out that is not weather dependent. We are Super Hosts and also love our Experiences as we travel the world. So let us share our love of Mackintosh with you.
I am a lifelong fan of art nouveau, with almost 30 years experience and acquired knowledge of my specialist subject, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the others in The Four. I have been leading informal tours on Mackintosh since 1990, actively involved in the Mackintosh campaign by GSA, seeking to raise millions to rebuild the Mack. I have a particular interest in the historical context as a history graduate and in the artistic partnership of CRM and Margaret Macdonald, his wife. I will set the Experience in the wider context of the Mackintosh architectural oeuvre in the West of Scotland.
A delightful two course lunch is provided in the House for an Art Lover restaurant. Plenty of choice on the menu
A drink of your choice with lunch at House for an Art Lover. Coffee or Tea at Mackintosh Tea Rooms.
Admission to all locations is included
Transport by private vehicle during the experience, collecting and returning from a central Glasgow location.
Most visitors want to visit the iconic "Mack", the Glasgow School of Art. Sadly two fires make that impossible. We have chosen to give you a Mackintosh experience using private transport to great Mackintosh buildings that are slightly out of town. The only significant walking is inside the buildings and we have left plenty of time to share our love of both Mackintosh and the city whilst enjoying conversation over lunch or a final cuppa.
