The number and scale of shops and eating/drinking places is great. We have been going there on holiday weekends for 3 years and are still discovering secret places.

One of the few shopping experiences I truly enjoy...a great variety of outlets, brilliant buildings surrounding you, a lively street atmosphere - unique places like The Willow Tearoom and Princes Square - topped off with a final beer in The Drum & Monkey - watching Scotland win at rugby...a rare day out!

It's lovely, but shop elsewhere for bargains. Full of life, buskers and bands, glitz and glamour however.

Really busy and it was pouring with rain. Good variety of shops but I wasn't there for shopping. Got lost a few times and very friendly people gave me directions.

My hubby and I like Buchanan Street at night. It has a great vibe and it is nice for a wander allowing you to do a lot of wonderful window shopping.

Must be one of the best shopping streets in the UK. With St Enoch subway station across Argyll St at the bottom and Buchanan St subway near the top it is so very accessible. Also on Argyll Street you have loads of buses passing constantly. Also both Glasgow Main Railway stations - Queen Street and Central are just about 200... More

My last trip to Glasgow about 10 years ago was way different. The Difference was now there was a renowned shopping centre called Buchhanan Galleries. A much needed regeneration for that part of Glasgow. So if and when u go to Glasgow the BFM wants you to check it out
