When in Glasgow.....

.... you should not miss to have a breakfast or an afternoon meal at The Willow Tearooms. Glasgow takes good care of its Charles Rennie Mackintosh heritage, and there are some of his buildings to pay a visit to. But arguably The Willow Tearooms place is the most charming one. Both the house and its interior design is by Mackintosh. And there are bonuses: it´s small and fast to fashion, and you may be seated and have something decent for your stomach at a reasonable price. You enter the place via the entrance to Henderson, the Jewellers.

I did so at a visit to Scotland in the end of March. You will find The Willow Tea Rooms at 217 Sauchihall Street, a major pedestrian street. For further information, visit this webpage.

Not many quarters away you will find Mackintosh´s Glasgow School of Art:
