Glasgow has once and for all shaken off its rough, tough image from the early twentieth century. It’s now a city with great galleries and museums; a string of excellent restaurants; buzzing nightlife but it hasn’t forgotten its roots. The Clyde and shipbuilding are still strongly commemorated. The Tenement House is a fascinating tourist attraction. But above all – and he’s well represented in this seventeen minute programme – Charles Rennie Mackintosh, one of the creators of the Art Nouveau movement has several important locations in the city you’ll be able to visit. This guide is seventeen minutes long.
