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.
