**Following a major fire in the Mackintosh Building on the 15 June 2018, The Glasgow School of Art visitor centre, shop and exhibition spaces in the neighbouring Reid building are currently closed to visitors. Mackintosh at the GSA Tours and Mackintosh’s Glasgow Walking Tours will cease to operate during this closure period. For upcoming events, lectures and degree shows at The Glasgow School of Art, view their events calendar.**

The Glasgow School of Art is one of Europe's leading university-level institutions and is responsible for producing a wealth of renowned artists and designers, Turner Prize winners and even a Doctor Who! The global reaching alumni honed their crafts within the most inspiring of surroundings - the building is Charles Rennie Mackintosh's architectural masterpiece and was recently voted as the finest building designed by a British architect in the last 175 years.

Visitors can discover Mackintosh’s famous furniture designs, the history of his signature building and investigate the city's distinctive architectural style at the turn of the Century through award-winning student-led guided tours.

"Led by bright and well-informed students, these popular tours take in a century of urban development and look at the creative regeneration"
