McArthurGlen Christmas

Whether you’re armed with your family’s Christmas wish list or on the hunt for a party dress to dazzle, we’ll help you find what you’re looking for and return home in a festive mood.

The seasonal celebrations continue in our cafés and restaurants, which are full of the flavours of Christmas this time of year. Indulge in the likes of buttery mince pies, turkey and cranberry toasties, and steaming hot chocolates laced with gingerbread syrup. Pull up a chair (and a cracker) with the ones you love and give your stomach the gift of breakfast, lunch or dinner with a favourite from our seasonal specials.

To make this Christmas all the more comfortable, you’ll find enhanced health & safety measures throughout our centre. Our Guest Service team will also be on hand to help in any way they can, so you can relax, enjoy your visit and embrace the festive spirit.

Together we’re safer

Your safety and welfare this Christmas are of the upmost importance. That’s why we have increased cleaning in public areas and become SafeGuard Covid-19 accredited.
