The Lighthouse, Scotland's Centre for Design and Architecture, is a visitor centre, exhibition space and events venue situated in the heart of Glasgow, just off the Style Mile. The Lighthouse acts as a beacon for the creative industries in Scotland and promotes design and architecture through a vibrant programme of exhibitions and events.
Formerly housing The Glasgow Herald, The Lighthouse was the first public commission completed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and is the perfect place to begin a Mackintosh tour of Glasgow.
From 1999 until 2009 The Lighthouse was under the management of The Lighthouse Trust. Ownership of The Lighthouse transferred to Glasgow City Council in 2010 and remains an asset of Glasgow City Council today.
