Gretna Green in Scotland is the first town over the border from England. In the days when marriage laws differed between these two parts of the United Kingdom it was the destination of many star-crossed, runaway English lovers desperate to marry without their parents formal consent. Famously weddings were performed by the local blacksmith using his anvil as an altar, a tradition that is maintained to this day for romantic lovers from across the world. Clearly signposted and just one minute drive from the M6/M74 motorway, the Gretna Gateway Outlet Village sits on the outskirts of this small historic town.
Gretna Gateway Outlet Village has over 50 stores offering many of the top name outlet shopping brands including Marks and Spencer, Next and Gap. The outlet centre has many top name designer stores with great styles for men, women and children including Jacques Vert, Jeff Banks and Julian Charles - great brands not always seen in UK outlet malls. For casual wear bargains of up to 70% off high street prices; try Superdry, Polo Ralph Lauren or Klass.
There are also 5 places to eat at the Gretna Gateway Outlet Village, making it an ideal stop over point for travellers heading up or down the motorway. Costa and Subway provide a wide range of drinks and sandwiches whilst Masserellas offers a wide range of seasonal food, ranging from freshly-made paninis to home baked scones with jam and cream. The Village Restaurant and Village Deli Take-Out provide traditional cooked breakfasts and hot food plus freshly-made sandwiches and delicious cakes - or indulge yourself at Thornton’s Chocolate Cafe.
