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

Very delightful car free pedestrian street in the city center with Christmas lights. It was a very convenient way to get your bearings as you walked around the downtown area.

While in Glasgow you cannot miss this spot with tons of shops and restaurants. The Glasgow central station is very close as are other attractions of the city.

Great street, Glasgow's premier place for shopping, not to mention plenty of eateries along the way. Also lots of entertainment from various street performers. All in a beautiful setting with some great architecture!

Buchanan Galleries is at the top of Buchanan Street and again it's worth a visit, it's an excellent shopping centre with lots of top brand names and the... More
