Celebrate Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design this summer on a walking tour with GSA’s talented student guides. Immerse yourself in Mackintosh's Glasgow or discover the city's recent creative regeneration.
Mackintosh’s Glasgow Walking Tour:
Immerse yourself in the life and times of innovative architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh and investigate Glasgow’s distinctive architectural styles at the turn of the century.
Discover Mackintosh’s impressive city centre designs, his lesser known architectural gems and buildings by his contemporaries working in internationally acclaimed ‘Glasgow Style’ Art Nouveau.
Creative Glasgow Walking Tour:
Explore the city’s unique artistic regeneration and booming creative industries through innovative public artworks and bold new architecture.
Delve in to the thriving contemporary arts scene, view our vibrant variety of galleries, find hidden artworks installed in the city and uncover the story of Glasgow’s remarkable creative transformation.
From the 1st of July our daily Mackintosh at the GSA tours depart on the hour from 11am – 3pm and now last 45 minutes, with reduced pricing to reflect this change.
A great introduction to Mackintosh, his ideas, inspirations, influences and life, this tour explores the fascinating history of the Mackintosh building with GSA’s knowledgeable student guides. The 45 minute long tour also allows exclusive access to the School’s unique collection of original Mackintosh furniture and rare artwork by Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh now situated in the Reid building.
We are delighted to continue to run our popular walking tours as part of the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design. A great way for visitors to explore the city, from turn of the century architecture on our Mackintosh’s Glasgow walking tour to the recent artistic regeneration on our Creative Glasgow walking tour.
