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.

Wonderful architecture mixing old with new. Look up alleyways for old buildings nestled behind the main shops.

Good shopping centre found lack of public seating for disabled persons to use also couldn't find any where to eat at ground level and the food hall wasn't that great being all self service isn't good when you have any disability and can't carry tray and walk with a stick

Buchanan St is a must visit when in Glasgow, for shoppers you have House Of Fraser,Princess Sq along with many other high end outlets. During week days but mostly on a Saturday you will see some many talented buskers like the pipe and drums of Clanadonia,Amazing vocals by Anna Shields,Human Statues,Artists and many more.

Just a few moment in the city center. So much people, noise, shopping. Good step for a tea time and museum. Go through differents ways of Buchanan street to find out architecture and good shops.
