  • Lovely old building restored from old newspaper offices. You can visit the displays on Mackintosh architecture including taking lift to 6th floor viewing room to see the wonderful water tower that stood over the old printing press to protect from fires. If you feel fit climb the water tower via the spiral staircase and get a panoramic view of the City. Free entry and lovely cafe on fifth floor. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Great place, hidden in the lanes of Buchanan street but worth visiting. Has several museums. To see this staircase you need to go through the Mackintosh hall on the 3rd floor. It would've been great if they had a map of glasgow on the top, so you could easily guess what building is what. Otherwise, fine 👍🏻
