The original Willow Tea Rooms building on Sauchiehall Street was reopened in July to celebration the 150th anniversary of the birth of its designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

The building, which first opened in 1903, is the only one where Mackintosh had total control over the architecture and interior decorations, including the design of furniture, cutlery and the waitress’s uniforms.

The 200-seat restaurant and tea rooms has undergone a £10 million restoration.
