Shopping Breaks

Glasgow is widely regarded as one of the U.K's top destinations for shopping. Second only to London. Glasgow is the second biggest retail city in the whole of the U.K. From designer shops to large street malls in the city centre, there is plenty to choose from if you require some serious retail therapy. To help you enjoy a relaxing day's shopping in Glasgow City Centre, there are many coffee houses, restaurants, bars and snack bars to choose from near the Lomond Hotel.

Walk around the heart of Glasgow and you could get through your hard earned cash too quickly! We’ve got elegant malls stacked with designer names, A-list boutiques in Victorian warehouses and true originals you won’t find anywhere else.

Shopping is an absolute must in Glasgow. Not only is it tops for shops but its compact city centre and accessibility make it a great place for as much retail therapy as you like! Giant high street shopping centres such as the ultra modern Buchanan Galleries and the St Enoch Centre to the elegant Italian Centre and Princes Square as well as the speciality shops of the Merchant City. From the streets and lanes of the city’s bohemian West End which are a treasure trove for anyone, to the art shops of West Regent Street where you’ll find some excellent pieces.

It is also worth taking time out from the main streets and shopping malls to explore the antique shops, craft shops tucked away in the area’s markets.
