Can be very busy as loads of shops and some lovely buildings to look at that people don't often notice. Also watch your bags/pockets as it is an opportunity for those pesky people who can't help steal from others although this happens world wide.A few buskers some good talent to be seen and heard on the streets.

There are a few shopping centres based on Buchanan street as well as many single stores. Also, it offers multiple cafes and restaurants so this makes it a great place to meet up friends and enjoy the day.

Enjoyed looking in the shop windows and visited a few.. I knew that it was one of the main shopping Streets in the City but really nothing else. Enjoyed our time around the City & on the street.. quality brand name shops we don't have in our area.

Kinds of shops are located along the street. Shops for children, women, men and so on. There are subways which are convenient for tourists and locals. Lights will be on at night on the street and the view is amazing. Good restaurants can be found here. Great place to visit.

The style mile! Best place on earth for shopping. Finger definitely on the pulse of fashion and shops accommodate all price ranges. From a £10 bag to £1000 a bag. Stunning at Christmas when all lit up😍

Clean and good staff would recomend. Close to town centre with lively bars. Downside is that there is no parking.
