Visit / Tours


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.

Building Tours

Our building tour is a chance to learn more about The Lighthouse and the unique qualities of the building. Whether you are an education group looking for a 'behind the scenes' building experience or a visitor wanting to discover more about Charles Rennie Mackintosh, our tours are the perfect way to gain an insider's guide to The Lighthouse.
