This is the best shopping 🛍️ street in Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿. Another thing this is like the best shopping 🛒 street I ever seen outside of London in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧. It is very fun street too . Lastly it’s very charming too .

This is the main pedestrian street with many shops and malls connected to it or nearby. I would probably recommend a hotel near here as the train station is very close as well. Given it is the main shopping area it tends to feel safer at night going back to the hotel.

Glasgow City center is finished.
Low emissions zone to protect the health of its visitors. When It's full of the most unhealthy people I have ever seen.
If you enter, if you can afford to enter, you will find the streets are full of Busker's, Beggars, Rough sleepers. Shop lifters, and muggers. Oh, not forgetting dirt and rubbish.
The 4 Corners is literally rammed with the city's drug addicts.
Shops are closing at an incredible rate.
The pavements are crumbling and could do with a good power wash.

Shameful.

The usual chain stores and some overpriced souvenir stores. You’ll come across it when strolling around the city but I wouldn’t make a special trip.

The Willow Tea Rooms are a lovely venue exhibiting Rene Macintosh style, so we decided to go there for breakfast. Sadly that was not a good experience: service was courteous but painfully slow; coffee was undrinkable and the breakfast fare was mediocre, although I'm told that the strawberry tart my friends had at the end was delicious!

BADLY RUN STORE. Waited 20 mins in the fitting room queue on a hot day but when we finally got in half the fitting rooms were empty. Staff were proritizing people leaving fitting room and slowly hanging/fixing items given back. No more than 6 items allowed so I gave Olivia more items to keep for me, when I asked for them she first of all fixed all items I gave her back on hangers and then and only then would she look at me to tell me my items had been put back on shop floor by mistake, no apology!
Huge queues at checkout whilst other staff members chatted to each other and friends. Suggested to manager that fitting room could be organised better but felt I was not listened to.

Plenty of shops and restaurants. Though street has all the classical shops and chains that you find mostly at big cities but couldn't find anything great except some of the  architecture stands out. Quite a few street performers after the top of the street. Busy than Sauchiehall street and mostly pedestrianized, so easy to walk about. Surprisingly, some shops only accept cash.
