    Love this space - worth a visit for the Mackintosh collection and the awesome spiral staircase giving you the best views of the city.

    Really good views of the city centre and afar. One viewpoint is accessible by lift and the older actual Lighthouse structure is only by stairs. It seems to be closed off at times.

    This place has honestly got the slowest elevators in the world. Take the stairs or escalator as it will be infinitely quicker.

    The Lighthouse is the renamed conversion of the former offices of the Glasgow Herald newspaper. Completed in 1895, it was designed by the architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

    Climb the helical staircase to the top of the tower, where you’ll have magnificent vistas of Glasgow’s turrets, spires & glass-sheathed towers from floor-to-ceiling windows in the viewing gallery.
    Its a great place! its located in a nice wee alley with fantastic architecture! its also home to the Maklab, there's also a nice wee pub beside it Bar Soba! Check it out if just for the architecture!

    Lovely haven of peace - the Doocot cafe on fifth floor. Delicious soup. Cake, scones, coffee, sannies, etc.

    One of the most amazing buildings in Glasgow city centre - stunning design and usually very interesting exhibitions. Go up to both viewing platforms, and stop in the Doocot cafe for a cuppa. Read more

    Hidden away and no signs, but find the tower with spiral staircase for panoramic view of city for free (at least when we visited!) worth the climb.
