  • I didn't get chance to get in as it was closed to public by the time I got there. Will be back this weekend though and going by how beautiful the gardens are managed I'm looking forward to seeing inside. Looking at some pictures other people have out on and they are stunning. A lovely house and lovely gardens with park and ski course on same grounds. Also a few mazes and other attractions. Great day out for family's of all ages. Something for everyone.
  • A recreation of A Mackintosh design. Glasgow's most famous son, possibly art wise
  • House For An Art Lover is absolutely stunning. I think the trust has done an amazing job of realising and bringing to life the designs of Charles and Margaret Mackintosh. I can't recommend a visit highly enough! Their tour, restaurant & gift shop and customer service are all 5 star too.
  • Amazing restaurant. Beautiful building. One-way married here and it was fantastic . Staff are very welcoming. The wee shop has looks of beautiful trinkets.
  • Could not believe the extortionate entry price! Totally over the top and made it too expensive to go in with my kids. The cafe is also very expensive but the food and drink looked good and waiting staff were excellent.

Where to stay in Glasgow

Glasgow's revitalized city center offers outstanding accommodations--along with some of the finest shopping outside London. Considered one of the finest Victorian cities in Britain, Glasgow is renowned for its centrally located hotels. Spacious rooms overlook the historical city center, and award-winning restaurants and trendy cafes occupy the lower levels. Farther away from the central areas, which are often noisy and crowded with tourists, is a world of small B&Bs and guesthouses. These considerably cheaper options offer quality lodging in quiet neighborhoods less frequented by weekend revelers and rowdy nightlife lovers.
