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... 更多
Beautiful building, quiet, peacefull and well preserved. A little bit remote area, not in the walking distance from the centre, but worth the visit.
Arrived at the church for the start of our official 3 day tour by the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society. The exterior design, complete with green doors, is interesting but once inside the beauty and soothing atmosphere is overwhelming. The stained glass windows are fine features, the Blue heart probably an iconic feature. The change of light during our visit emphasised... 更多
A beautiful example for Mackintosh fans (of which I am one), this is a quick tour. It's a small, pretty church, with a gift shop. There's a £4 entrance fee.
Part of a CRM(Charles Rennie McIntosh weekend) experience. 2 visits, one private one part of the thour. On both occasions very helpful staff( one volunteer lady called Joan) even walked part of the way home and gave us directions to our hotel!!). The architecture in the church was excellent as wa the tea/coffee and biscuits in the adjoining church hall... 更多
Excellent example of Mackintosh. Sparse but stunning and with a guitar recital ongoing when we visited it was quite breathtaking. Access to all areas lets you get a sense of how it felt to be a member of the congregation when it was a functioning place of worship.
What an outstanding architectural gem, from the most talented, and unique imagination, of Glasgow's own Charles Rennie MacIntosh! An oasis of tranquility and serene calm,that will take the worries of the World off your shoulders. The Shop, is beautiful, and for gathering gifts for your visiting friends or Relatives, who would like a souvenir of Glasgow or Scotland, you will... 更多
Despite living locally we had not visited The House for an Art Lover until a couple of weeks ago and having enjoyed that so much decided to visit Queen's Cross Church which we have driven past on many occasions. Thoroughly enjoyed visit. Quiet and understated but useful descriptions of the salient features.Lovely Mackintosh building with one of the most beautifully... 更多
You feel like you are walking in the footsteps of CRM in this church. This is the ONLY church in the world designed by him, which opened in 1899. It costs £4 per adult and £2 per child to visit and there is a loo and a small shop. You are met by friendly staff and then left to visit... 更多
