Tour Guides

GSA's award-winning guides are students and graduates of The Glasgow School of Art.

Our knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides offer the perfect introduction to Charles Rennie Mackintosh, his work in the city and the history of life at GSA. Tours are researched with our Archives & Collections Centre, working closely with the Mackintosh curator as well as partner venues and specialists across the city and further afield.

Through the Mackintosh at the GSA Tour our guides explore Charles Rennie Mackintosh's story at The Glasgow School of Art, from student to master architect. This tour enables visitors to discover Mackintosh’s ideas, inspirations, education and relationships along with exclusive access to GSA's unique collection of original Mackintosh furniture.

Further delve into Glasgow's creative past and present on a 2.25 hour long Mackintosh's Glasgow Walking Tours. Hailed as one of the Top 10 City Architecture Tours by the Independent these popular tours allow visitors to uncover hidden details in the city and experience it like never before.
