Christmas with Princes Square


Princes Square for Scots is as synonymous with Christmas as Santa and turkey and although it’s a must-visit destination throughout the year it’s even more so during the festive season.

Walking around the centre you’ll be able to take in the glittering lights, indulge in a seasonal lunch (or dinner) and buy the perfect gifts for your loved ones.

Celebrate Christmas in style with Princes Square

Recently named as ‘Scotland’s Favourite Building’ by The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland in a public vote, Princes Square is different to other shopping centre experiences, and Christmas this year will be as unique as it always is.

Glasgow is renowned for its fashion and style and at Princes Square you’ll find brands and designer labels that aren’t available anywhere else in Scotland. COS, Vivienne Westwood and Belstaff are just some of the big names to mention.  They sit perfectly amongst independent boutique outlets like Kestin Hare, recently named Retailer of the Year at the prestigious Scottish Fashion Awards, Ollybear Childrenswear, which stock exclusive labels from Europe, and the recently opened Les 100 Ciels, its first store in the UK out-with London. Other must visits are Pringle of Scotland, Joules, French Connection, Ted Baker, Reiss, Whistles and Kurt Geiger.

With over 25 retailers, clothing isn’t the only thing on offer. Whether it’s sensational scents from Shearer Candles and Jo Malone London to create the perfect Christmas ambience, or some top cookery kit from Le Creuset. And if you want to pamper a loved one then Crabtree & Evelyn, Space NK and Sassoon are the perfect places to indulge.

If you fancy a break from shopping then a cocktail, a glass of fizz or a pot of tea must be part of the plan.  Restaurant Bar and Grill has one of the best steaks in town or if you prefer some Asian fusion, Obu Pan Asian have dumplings to die for. Caribbean flavour comes courtesy of Sugar Dumplin whilst Barca focuses on heady Spanish delicacies. Add Cranachan, Darcy’s, Il Pavone, NY American Grill, October, Pizza Express, Zizzi, Café Bombon and Tinderbox and you have something that satisfies everyone’s tastes.
