At GMRC for ''Mackintosh and the Four' ,one of their programmed talks. Anna, the art historian, was an excellent guide, informative, interesting and entertaining. The walk around the building itself was worth a visit itself! A very enjoyable afternoon.

This place is amazing and enormous. We had a general tour which gave a "flavour" of the centre and the exhibits but we'll definitely be back for one of the specialist tours. The guide was very well informed and enthusiastic. Remember you must book in...More
