The former Gartnavel Royal Hospital Chapel is an Arts and Crafts style building, restored in 2012 by GBPT. Enjoy the welcoming space achieved through the conservation of original features and sympathetic new extension, all retaining the buildings original charm.

The former Royal Gartnavel Chapel, and now home to Cancer Support Scotland was designed by the most celebrated architect of his time, Sir John James Burnet. The arts and crafts inspired building was opened in 1904 and was considered an unusual choice for Glaswegian buildings which were predominately built in stone. In contrast with most churches of the time where height and verticality were preferred, it was designed to sit low in the landscape with a small porch to welcome people in from the hospital. Also of note, the two stained glass windows in the North Gable, St Luke & Drocas, were designed by Robert Anning Bell and created by the studio of Guthrie and Wells in 1904. Now home to the Calman Cancer Support Centre which was opened in 2012 after lying derelict for 14 years, the building was renovated alongside the development of sympathetic extension to cater for the new owners. Cancer Support Scotland provide emotional and practical support – on a one to one basis and through community support groups to anyone affected by cancer including friends, family and carers.
