This is a lovely pedestrianised street, close to the main Central station, with a wealth of lovely shops. I enjoyed being able to just stroll about, without having to worry about traffic. When we were there, there was a nice little Christmas market at the bottom of Buchanan Street. Without exception, all of the shop staff were friendly and helpful,... More

Buchanan street gather several commercial places for every purpose you can imagine; little gifts, clothes ranging from really cheap to luxurious, all sorts of places to grab a pint or eat. And further, it's easy to bump with street musicians there and appreciate some (usually) good quality street music.

This street is pure 'tap drawer' Quality Street! Nae Riff Raff shops here Plus two classy archades- Argyle Archade, Glasgow's version of London's Burlington Archade And a shopping mall at either end. You can try the rest, but Buchannan's the best.

This is absolutely ideal for shopping. An assortment of high street shops mingle with more individual outlets. The street is handy for both the underground metro network, and Central Station which is within 5 minutes walking distance.

From the height of Buchanan street all the way down I went to shops, saw buskers and people slightly under some influence e dancing along. A not so good singer and a TGI Friday's. Not bad

Great Christmas lights, lots of street entertainers, great feel about the place while a lot of people were out and about doing their shopping. Really nice area to visit and shop, if you have to, but the cafes and restaurants surrounding this area give you a much better alternative after wandering up and down the street looking at the lights...

About: There are many famous streets to visit but Buchanan has more upmarket retailers and was the winner of the Academy of Urbanism "Great Street Award" 2008. The collection of shops around these streets accumulate to become known as "The Style Mile”, so you don’t want to miss this on your trip. Buchanan Street is also the second busiest shopping... More
