The Centre

EK, East Kilbride is the largest undercover shopping and leisure destination in Scotland. So it's fair to say we've got something for everyone. Shopping? Over 150 brands, from big fashion labels to everyday essentials. Cinema? Of course - and not just any old cinema, we've got a proper Odeon Luxe. Places to eat and drink, from a mid-morning coffee to date night with the hubby. Leisure activities, including an ice rink. Stuff for the kids and much more. We've even got a library.

In this section and throughout the site we've tried to cover everything you'd want to know about EK - but if you'd like to find out more, give us a call on 01355 243291.
