Group Bookings

To participate in a guided tour as a group we recommend making a private booking. 

This allows us to take care of any special needs or additional requirements you may have and also allows you to benefit from a personalised service and discounted pricing.

Tours are conducted by our award-winning guides, all either students or recent graduates of The Glasgow School of Art. All proceeds from our tours support the School.

Private group tours can be arranged 7 days a week for groups of up to 20 people. Please contact us at or on +44 (0)141 353 4526 if you wish to arrange alternative or additional timeslots for your group.

Our maximum capacity is 20 people per time slot to ensure your group has the best possible experience and moves safely through the building or around the city. Larger parties of more than 20 people will be split into separate time slots with tour start times staggered by 15 minute intervals.

We offer an additional discount to press, school groups where the majority of students are under 18 and small groups of 5 or less.

For primary school visits, a fun Mackintosh at the GSA activity booklet with clipboards and coloured pencils is provided free of charge to enhance the tour, designed for key stage 2. 

Our tours depart from the Window on Mackintosh visitor centre at 164 Renfrew Street, but with advance notice we can arrange bespoke pick up and drop off for tour groups at a flat fee of £50 per group of up to 20, to reflect staffing costs.
