The Mackintosh Church

[Mackintosh Church]

Queen's Cross Church on the west side of Glasgow is the only church ever designed by famous Glasgow architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It's now widely known as The Mackintosh Church and joins the list of Mackintosh attractions dotted around Glasgow including The Glasgow School of Art, The Lighthouse and Scotland Street School Museum. Despite a fairly muted exterior, the inside of the church (and church hall) is instantly recognisable as a Mackintosh building, from the rose motifs to the strict geometric shapes and Art Nouveau influences. The church is too far from the city centre to walk easily, but far enough that finding a parking space nearby should be straightforward.
