Willow Tea Room
The Willow Tea Room in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, was designed by one of the UK’s foremost designers Charles Rennie Mackintosh. He was part of the Arts and Crafts Movement and worked around the turn of the 20th century. It was called “willow” to reflect “saugh” in the name of the street from the Scots word for willow. The Willow Tea Room commission in 1904 came from Kate Cranston, a doyenne of the newly fashionable idea of a tea room, for whom he did a number of designs. Mackintosh designed every aspect, the exterior, interior, menus, waitresses’ dresses, crockery and cutlery. The highlight is the Room de Luxe with its bay window, silver-coloured furniture, leaded glass decoration, and his trademark high-back chairs. Primarily intended as a ladies’ tea room it was in contrast to the darker wood-panelled Gallery with billiards and a smoking area for men. The exterior is asymmetric with curves and recesses reflecting the ideas of Art Nouveau. Today after many changes of ownership the Tea Room has been restored to its original function and in Mackintosh’s style. It is open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday and 11am to 4.15pm Sunday, and is also available for private hire.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum re-opened in 2006 after being closed for refurbishment for three years. 1.9 million people visited in the first year of opening, putting it first among Scottish tourist attractions and making it the most visited museum in the United Kingdom outside of London. It has received five stars from Visit Scotland. The permanent collections comprise art, decorative arts, archaeology, natural history. The renovations gave the museum more usable space, and allowed the number of objects on display to double, from 4000 to 8000. Notable exhibits include objects and pieces of furniture by Charles Rennie MacKintosh, the main name of the Art-Nouveau movement in Glasgow, and the famous Christ of St John of the Cross by Salvador Dali. The building itself is built of red sandstone, the traditional building material in Glasgow which gives the city a lot of its character, in a Spanish Baroque style. It is located a few minutes away from the Kelvinhall underground station. Entry to the museum is free, as with all the museum belonging to the city of Glasgow. Opening times are available on the museum's website.
