The Lighthouse Glasgow

June 11, 2011

The Lighthouse in Glasgow was opened in July 1999, by HM Queen Elizabeth, after a £13 million conversion, which transformed Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s derelict 1895 Glasgow Herald newspaper office into Scotland’s first, dedicated, national centre for architecture and design. The Mackintosh Interpretation Centre incorporates technology, original objects and a fascinating timeline plotting Mackintosh’s contribution to architecture and design. The Mackintosh Tower with its helical staircase, provides magnificent views across the city of Glasgow

The Lighthouse is one of the only centres in the world that is equally dedicated to architecture and design.

The Lighthouse Vision: “To be a leading body for the promotion of architecture, design and the creative industries, locally, nationally and internationally by engaging people of all ages through a creative exhibition, education and business programme.”

Facilities include : Gift Shop, Changing Exhibitions, Guided Tours

What our guests say

“Compelled to give the staff a good shout at The Argyll. Without a doubt for the price and location of the Hotel this is one of the best budget hotels I have come across in the UK. 15 Minute walk from Town centre, The setting while basic are of a very good standard for the tariff, clean and a good shower / hot water supply alongside a comfy bed to rest up. Very good staff and an exceptional buffet breakfast that was well above expectation. For a budget hotel I would happily recommend the Argyll and will stay here again!”
