This is about a mile long street open for pedestrians only and lined with tons of shops. Great place to go pick up some souveniers or just people watch.

I spent every morning for a month straight, walking down Buchanan this summer and I never got to it all. I love the architechture, the people, the music, dancing, history, food, drinks and....of course shopping. It is truly a main stream through downtown Glasgow.

This street is always full of life, there are many street performers from buskers to pipers and highlanders to Native Americans. It is a great part of Glasgow with a breathtaking view fro the Concert Hall Steps, a true gathering place.

This area is great if you're into shopping but less so if you're wanting to do sightseeing. Not one of my favourite parts of Glasgow and as busy as central London.

A wonderful indoor shopping centre. A hive of activity. A bus station and other travel links. Truly the centre of Glasgow. Clean friendly council and police workers

All the shops you would expect for a high street, plus the little alleyways for some great surprises. Will come again next year for Christmas Shopping.

Buchanan Street is a vibrant street with a huge variety of shops and cafes for all tastes. There are lots of litttle arcades with tasteful shops and elegant cafes. You may even find a street piper in full Scottish gear depending on the weather. There are also galleries nearby - Rennie MAckintosh School of Art and George Square closeby, Metro... More
