Not what I expected, great visit!

This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair, Powerchair


Visiting the Lighthouse for the first time I wasn't too sure what to expect. Getting in and getting around as a Powerchair user was easy and I'll certainly visit again.

Transport & Parking


Parking and transport might be an issue for some people as the Ligthouse is set in a side street off Buchanan Street which in itself is pedestrianised.



On arriving it was easy to get in via the large automated glass doors. The reception has a dropped area and the routes around the building well signposted. It was great to be able to explore the unexpected areas like the rooftop viewing point. A lift, escalator or stairs takes you to the different levels. There was plenty of circulation space around the different galleries and exhibits.



The accessible toilets are clearly signposted and provide easy access.



Full marks to the staff. On arriving the reception staff explained the layout and the best routes to take. This included pointing out the accessibility of the viewing area. In the exhibition areas I met other staff who were friendly and gave tips on what to see as we went around.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

The various exhibition and gallery areas were fascinating and we ran out of time looking around. There's also a cafe which is accessible and worth a visit.
