Hotels near the Mackintosh Trail
Glasgow School of Art in the city centre is the starting point for a tour of the work of Art Nouveau architect, designer and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The tour takes in 12 attractions, including the elegantly baronial Hill House in its manicured gardens.
The popular Mackintosh Trail gives the visitor free transport and unlimited access to the works of the late, great Glaswegian for one day. The trail reveals attractions which are partially or substantially the work of the great man, hailed as one of the principal founders of European Art Nouveau.
Highlights of the trail include Sauchiehall Street, the Glasgow Style Room in the McLellan Galleries, which sets Mackintosh's work against the context of his peers in turn-of-the-century Glasgow and the Willow Tea Rooms; the exterior and interior of Hill House in Helensburgh; the Mackintosh House; the Scotland Street School Museum, which was Mackintosh's last major commission for the city and the Queens' Cross Church, the only church to be completely designed by Mackintosh.
