Glasgow MEMBERS' CENTRE
( Charity Number SC 024399 )

The Glasgow Members' Centre of the National Trust for Scotland organises a number day excursions and a long weekend trip during the spring, summer and autumn. In 2024 four day visits, a visit to Mackintosh at the Willow for afternoon tea and a five-day holiday to Harrogate have been arranged. Booking forms were sent to all members in the February mailing.

All excursions will leave from North Hanover Street (opposite to the East Entrance to Queen Street Station). Please note the day of the week and the departure times as these will vary.

As the excursions are run to a timetable, we can only wait a few minutes if you are late. Ideally everyone should be seated in the coach before the stated departure time. The aim is that the excursions will return to Glasgow by 6.00pm but this might vary dependent on traffic conditions on the day.
