Queens Cross Church is loving looked after by the Mackintosh Society. It is not the easiest place to get to but worth the effort if you are trying to see everything by Mackintosh. On the day we visited the Custodian welcomed us and gave us information when we asked, but not so much as to be off putting. We were... More

This Church is a bit off the beaten track for Glasgow sights but well worth a visit specially if you are a Mackintosh fan. We caught a train from Bucanhan street to Hillhead then a taxi a bit too far for us to walk but only a mile or so in the taxi about £5. Check opening times specially winter... More

Had a guided tour round the building by an expert guide. Beautiful building both inside and out. Charles Rennie Mackintosh at his best. Now a museum and well worth a visit. As... More

I went there yesterday on a wonderful "lids open" day when people could come along and play the 3 pianos that are in the building. I was blown away by the simple beauty of the building - very Hill House. I can never get over how this hugely talented man came to die in poverty. It is a reminder to... More

Mackintosh Queen's Cross is one of Glasgow's hidden architectural gems, and being the only church in the world designed by the great Scottish Architect, designer and artist, it is well and truly worth the visit.

From the collection receptacles scattered about, to the selection of Mackintosh "tracts" available in the back of the church, to the eager volunteer waiting to proselytize to the visitor on the beauty of the (mostly) unaltered interior, this church-- now the headquarters of the Mackintosh society-- has made a complete transition to the worship of a sect of les arts...

Church designed by Glasgow architect Charles Rennie Macintosh. Pretty murals and stained glass. Some chairs designed by Macintosh too. Cool if you are an admirer of his style, otherwise nothing too special too go out your way to see.

An amazing example of the work of Charles Rennie Macintosh. The building is now owned by the CRM society who look after its upkeep. Good to see inside the church I was christened in many years ago!

We had been to the House for an Art Lover, but hadn’t seen enough of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s work, so it was off to the Queen’s Cross Church. Wedged in between other buildings on a busy road in a residential neighbourhood, it is the kind of old church you might pass without noticing, but if you stop to look closely... More

Beautiful building, quiet, peacefull and well preserved. A little bit remote area, not in the walking distance from the centre, but worth the visit.
