About The Lighthouse

Ascend to The Lighthouse in Glasgow, Scotland's beacon for design and creative innovation. Originally designed by the visionary architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh as the offices for the Glasgow Herald, this iconic building now serves as Scotland's Centre for Design and Architecture. With its unique exhibitions, workshops, and stunning panoramic views from the viewing platform, The Lighthouse invites you to explore the world of design through a Scottish lens.

Best Time/Season to Visit:
The Lighthouse is a captivating visit any time of the year, but to truly see it come alive, plan your visit during one of Glasgow’s design festivals or special exhibition launches. The clear skies of spring or early autumn offer the best views of the city from the top of the Mackintosh Tower.
