The Lighthouse


From its ideal city centre location just off Buchanan Street, with easy access to public transport and plentiful parking, to its heritage status Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed exterior, The Lighthouse offers an inspirational, world class venue for every occasion-from the most intimate wedding reception to the most stylish international conference.

Scotland's Centre for Design and Architecture is one of Europe's most visited and renowned architecture and design centres. As well as a stylish public exhibition and gallery spaced, the stunning contemporary interior houses a light and airy conference suite on Level 3, comprising 100-seater auditorium with adjoining break out area and dedicated reception and cloakroom facilities. For events requiring a more classical touch, the exquisite Mackintosh Centre, on the same floor, creates the perfect ambience for exclusive evening events such as private viewings and corporate networking.

A third spacious venue, Gallery 5, sits two floors above on Level 5 next to the Doocot- where The Lighthouse's mouth-watering cuisine is prepared using the best Scottish produce. For the ultimate in sophisticated dining, the Viewing Platform on Level 6, with its wraparound glass and magnificent views of Glasgow, is second to none. Each of these flexible atmospheric venues can be readily personalised to pamper, engage and delight your guests. Over 6 levels, with 6 conference and event rooms each offering a little something different, we are sure that The Lighthouse experience will make a lasting impression.

“The level of service that we receive at the Lighthouse is second to none; it is a pleasure to work with all of the staff when planning an event. Every request carried out perfectly and with a smile. The food provided by Encore is superb and perfect for our events. We hope to work with them for many years to come. ”
