Good choice of all kinds fo shops and restaurants here. Pedestrian area so it is easy to get around. Buchanan Galleries is a handy shopping mall to keep dry when it is raining.

If you love shopping, this street is the place to be. There is not only a wide range of shops in this street, but also a lot of entertainment. An extra bonus is that they keep the street really clean, which makes shopping and walking there a lot more amusing. Even if it rains you still can shop 'till you... More

This street has been redeveloped as a mall and if want to see how to do that successfully then view Buchanan street. It's got a great look and feel as well as genuine shops and cafes.

Just another outdoor pedestrian mall, no different from any other city we have visited except it is mostly going downhill and when you are tired returning maybe problematic. Standard shops with the souvenir stores interspersed. There is a modern indoor mall adjoining it. If shopping is your thing, then this a place to be if you want to pay for... More

It is not all pedestrian so watch crossing the roads. The shopping centre is light, airy and has a wide variety of shops. There is a visitor centre just round from the hotel.

One of my favorite street in Glasgow. Full of shops of every kind (clothes, shoes, coffee shops, supermarket, etc, ...and a comic book shop too!) with interesting buildings and no cars passing. It's right next door to Buchanan bus and coach station, so very easy to reach.
