I visit this area of Glasgow on a regular basis with my wife. She never misses an opportunity to walk the entire length of Buchanan Street to take in the excellent variety of shops. The area continues to change with much development only just completed at the north end of the street. Something for everyone here. Food is available nearby... More

Wide variety of shops and restaurants. Street entertainment for everyone. Great for window shopping when the budget is low and retail therapy when it has been replenished. Centrally located great for transport links. Princes Square is a must to visit for designer shops and restaurants.

There's a variety of shops & restaurants throughout the road for everyone. And a shopping centre at the top&bottom of Buchanan street. Perfect place for shopping

Here is everything you could wish for of shopping opportunities - Unfortunately, there is not much men can do to pass the time, there are some bars and cafes that are worth a visit and there are also many really good buskers remember to have your pennies ready ..

Great diverse range of shops in this area, something for everyone from young to old, and when you tire of shopping plenty of bars, restaurants nearby to rest your weary legs, great buzz about the area

There is something for everyone on this street, from chain stores, to custom small shoppes. There is also a wide variety of restaurants to please any palate. A great way to spend some free time between events at the Concert Hall. The train station is 1/2 block over. Very convenient & centrally located.

It is so worthwhile just to take a walk down Buchanan Street. Starting from the top, outside the Concert Hall you will pass the statue of Donald Dewar, citizen and politician of Glasgow. There may well be a band playing, someone singing or some street theatre. Within a few yards you are likely to encounter folk music, rock, metal and... More

Best street for shopping in the west of Scotland. Always a buzz. Great shops. Even when working in town I had to have my shopping 'fix' of Buchanan Street., but now I just visit every six weeks or so.
