Building Tour

Price: £tbc
Times: 11am
Duration: 40 minutes

Glasgow city centre has a wealth of historic buildings including numerous industrial and commercial buildings of significant architectural merit, none more so than The Lighthouse, the former Glasgow Herald Building. Our building tours provide a fascinating insight into the design features and architectural heritage of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s first public commission. Relax and enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee in the Doocot café at the end of the tour. 

Building tours are currently only available to groups and must be booked at least 48 hours in advance. Please contact us for further information.
