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.

Or if you're coming by car, park in our car park and walk straight into the centre. We have some of the best parking rates in the city, and the car park is open until 11.30pm every night - ideal if you're planning to make a day of it.

Car park entrances are on Killermont Street and Cathedral Street. If you’re coming from the M8 motorway, take junction 15, 16 or 17, and follow the signs for 'North Car Parks' and then 'Buchanan Galleries'.

We're also very handy for public transport. You'll find us next to Queen Street train station, Buchanan Street subway station and Buchanan bus station. Glasgow Central train station is 5 minutes walk away.
