Information about Parking in Glasgow Christmas Market
Choose your Glasgow Christmas market parking space from our range of options. For stress-free parking, park with us!
Glasgow is a port city, residing by the River Clyde in West Scotland, and home to the favoured Christmas markets. Spread out over St Enoch and George Square, get in the Christmas spirit with over 50 chalets from all over the globe, selling homemade crafts, sweet treats, festive gifts and more. You won't go hungry either, try a hog roast, a German bratwurst sausage, or even some local crispy duck rotisseries and then warm yourself through with some hot mulled wine.
There is a 50 foot Christmas tree, beautifully decorated and shining bright with lights and Scotland’s largest ice rink. At George Square, there is a traditional carousel, a family favourite among all and then the quintessential big wheel. There are also plenty of street entertainers and musicians really making you feel like you’re walking in a Christmas wonderland.
The Christmas markets usually open from the second week in November to the 29th December on St Enoch Square from 9.00am to 10.00pm and George Square from 10.00am to 10.00pm. Children can meet Father Christmas and maybe get an early present from him, ride on some of the rides available and taste some of the many delicatessen foods on offer. Those without children can browse the array of stalls and then take a break in the handmade and very authentic German bars that serve traditional beers.
