The best shopping area in the UK

Buchanan Street is a fantastic place to shop. The architecture, selection of shops, cafes & restaurants makes it the best shopping area in the UK. It is a shopaholics heaven.

Brilliant shopping, all the major outlets set out on a wide boulevard traffic free area. Easy to find your way about and there's a Metro Station.

Buchanan Street appears to be the Oxford Street, London, equivalent with it's designer shops and House of Frazer Store. It is truly vibrant street to walk through and the buildings are so beautifully built.

My wife and grand-daughter thoroughly enjoyed the shopping experience in Buchanan Street - I don't do shops but found a seat in a small cafe, enjoyed my coffee and read the paper
