Calling all lovers of architecture! Make sure to visit Mackintosh Queen Street in the Maryhill area of the city. This stunning building is a fine example of Mackintosh’s work and acts as a sort of hidden gem in the city. The building was originally built as a church and is in fact the only church built by Glasgow’s own and world-renowned architect. Commissioned in 1896, this magnificent structure is Gothic in style. However, it incorporated Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s famous character and style.
The building is no longer a church, but, it acts as a venue for many different shows and acts, while also hosting regular exhibitions. The building is now run by the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society, which attempts to bring a lively Mackintosh-style aura to any event that they host. Admission costs £10 and includes complimentary tea and coffee, and even a tour of the building. Their winter opening times are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 am to 4 pm. Their summer opening times are Monday to Friday 11 am to 4 pm. So what are you waiting for? Come down and take a look around this fascinating building!
