Being a Glaswegian, buchanan street is a common place to be. For tourists it is a must visit if you like shopping. All big brands are here with nice malls along the way. It is common to see live music and shows being performed on...More
Buchanan Street beats as you would expect the heart of Glasgow to do. The atmosphere is welcoming, the stores are accessible and the street performers who gather each day are wonderfully talented. You don't need a purpose on Buchanan Street, simply wandering is all you...More
My wife, daughter and I spent several hours on and around Buchanan St. The beautiful architecture is worth the trip on its own, especially the way they’ve repurposed old buildings rather than knocking them down (as in my home town of Sydney, Australia). Also lots...More
Buchanan Street in Glasgow is a shoppers dream,it has got something for everyone,there is also a number of indoor shopping centers scattered along the street.It also has many good Resturants and cafes.I personaly prefer Glasgow to Edingburgh.
Having left Glasgow some 50years ago I rember Buchanan Street as the prime location for the top class shops. It has dramatically changed and is not the mainstay of class now. Most of the class has moved into the Buchanan Street Mall which is very...More

there are some nice places to eat in merchant city too. You can try chaophraya, it's in buchanan street. also in buchanan galleries they have a section for sitting and eating, you can check that out too.
Could someone tell me what the approximate taxi fare from Buchanan Street bus station to Langside College at Prospecthill would be in the middle of the day? I know I could get the train from Central to Mount Florida but would prefer a taxi if it isn't too expensive. Thanks.

Which area should I stay at in November (5 Replies)
Will be going to the UK in November. Coming into Glasgow and flying out of Dublin. I will probably be in Glasgow two night. Is there any area you recommend staying at where I would be centrally located to a lot of things? I would prefer to walk everywhere I can if possible with the occasional taxi cab if needed. I heard Buchanan Street area is where I should stay. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, Buchanan St is the main shopping street and has no hotels, but is virtually dead centre of town. The city centre is quite compact and easy to navigate on foot being based on the grid system and at around 1 mile square, walking around would take no more than 20 mins end to end, so any hotel will suffice of which all the major players have at least one hotel. Would suggest to make the most of your time and to see all the major sites you should take the Hop On Hop Off bus tour which is £12...More

Buses to Glasgow University from Buchanan St Bus station? (7 Replies)
I've been trying to find out what bus routes are the most frequent/convenient for getting between Glasgow University and Buchanan Street bus station. Sadly I'm a bit dense when it comes to routes and timetables. Any chance someone in the know can tip me the nod as to which buses might be most suitable, and have the closest drop off/pick up points to Glasgow University. thanks muchly :-)
