Getting Here

Buchanan Galleries is in the heart of Glasgow city centre, one of the best shopping areas in the UK.

We're located on the corner of Buchanan Street and Sauchiehall Street, and you'll find entrances on both streets.

As we're in the city centre we're very handy for public transport.  We're next to Queen Street train station, Buchanan Street subway station and Buchanan bus station. Glasgow Central train station is 5 minutes walk away.

If you're coming by car, please be aware that we plan to close our car park for redevelopment in early June 2015.   It's currently open and will remain so for as long as possible.  We will provide all the latest information regarding its closure and alternative car parks and public transport links as soon as possible.

The car park can be accessed from Killermont Street and Cathedral Street. Follow the signs for 'North Car Parks' and then 'Buchanan Galleries'.

If you're using a route finder or sat nav, use either postcode G2 3NW or  G1 2DA as your destination. Please be advised that while these postcodes are not the postcode for the centre they will take you to our car park entrances.
