A message from Marian, the store manager: If you're travelling to Lakeland in Glasgow for a specific product, please telephone us beforehand on 0141 331 1112 to check availability.
Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and is a major tourist destination. Second only to London for "retail therapy", weekends get very busy!
We're situated on the first floor of the Buchanan Galleries. There are two entrances to the galleries: one in Buchanan Street, where you have access to lifts and escalators; the second in Sauchiehall Street where there's a walkway and then an escalator to the first floor. The main shopping area here in Glasgow is pedestrianised.
If you're using public transport you have various options to get here:
There are 2 train stations in the city: Queen Street Station is a mere 50 metres away from the Buchanan Street entrance, with Glasgow Central Station a 5 minute walk away. Buchanan Street Station on the underground (affectionately called 'the Clockwork Orange') is next to the galleries. If you choose to travel by bus, the Buchanan Street Bus Station is directly opposite us. Many other local bus services also drop you off near the galleries.
If you choose to bring your car, take junction 15, 16 or 17 from the M8 and follow the signs for Buchanan Galleries Car Park (the entrance is on Cathedral Street). This is a 9-storey state-of-the-art car park with 2,000 spaces, including 82 orange badge spaces and 'parent & child' spaces. It's patrolled, has CCTV, is well lit and has won the 'European Secured Car Park Award'. As a bonus, on Sundays you pay just is £1.50 for the first hour and £3.00 for all day.
Car park opening times: Mon - Sat 7:30am - 11:30pm, however there is no access to the shops until 8:30 and Sunday and Bank Holidays 9:00am - 11:30pm.
Glasgow is a Victorian city and the architecture reflects this. Some of the finest examples of this are found on the tops of buildings, so remember to 'look up'!
