  • Standard opening hours are 11am-5pm.
  • The Tower will close during periods of winds of 25mph or higher as this can affect your Tower experience.
  • In the event of an emergency, visitors to the Tower cabin will be evacuated via the 523 spiral stair case. Due to this safety procedure visitors need to be able to walk down the stairs unaided. Those with limited mobility or young children may therefore not be able to visit the Tower. We would ask that anyone concerned about descending the steps to speak with us.

Glasgow Tower is designed to move in the wind. Many visitors find the swaying sensation in windy weather unnerving. Consequently the Tower closes when the wind speed exceeds gusts of 25 mph at cabin height.
