Many Mackintosh lovers miss this wonderful example of his work, as it's an easy -not expensive- Uber (or other) ride from the busy downtown area. Especially on a sunny day, it's lovely to walk and relax in the gardens. There is a good restaurant as...More

Check their website as it does weddings also and the exhibition changes its opening times upto a week at a time. The cafe has separate opening times and is open to the public more frequent.
