We didn't truly shop here (aside from buying snacks), but we wandered around getting our bearings for the city and staving off jet lag. The street is simply bursting with people and the buildings are gorgeous. There was a man in full Scottish dress playing bagpipes, and of course we found a blue police box nearby (for Doctor Who fans).... More

Buchanan street offers a lot of entertainment. You will find street musicians, cafes and a lot of shops. Best way to get there is by train. Glasgow Central and other train stations are not far.

I am not a great shopper. I much prefer to look up and enjoy the architecture. Still, one could hardly visit Glasgow without a promenade up Buchanan Street.

Vibrant and alive atmosphere in the middle of Glasgow. Street entertainers and loads of shops makes this a great place to visit.

Best selection of shops I have seen outside London. Spent hours trying to get to see them all. Better than Edinburgh. Buildings more modern and presentable. Eateries are more artisan.

Good choice of shops in Buchanan Street, lots of buzz around the place with buskers and mime artists (mostly at weekend) Princes Square is a must to visit with its choice of shops and eateries under cover of a stunningly beautiful arcade
