A superb shopping area in the centre of Glasgow with not only the international brands, but also a wonderful range of up-market Glasgow favourites. An elegant place to shop, even on a chilly November day. And what is amazing is that it doesn't close until very late, which gives the whole city centre a real buzz!

This is a main artery of high street shops, local shops, with a tartan & tourist shop - sells Broons fudge and all things Scottish! Major high street mobile phone shops - but keep going to the top and there's an amazing Apple store inside an incredible stone building, possibly an old bank? There is alos Buchanan Galleries - John Lewis etc. The top to bottom of this street holds galleries of the side and has awarm atmosphere even in cold rain! ANd in fair weather, you can hear the notes of bag pipes from streetb artists or local parades! Loved it.

Lovely shops and great for people watching and having a stroll hand in hand with your boyfriend after a nice dinner nearby. Lots of street performers i.e. musicians in better weather.

Go into the arcades and shopping centres off the street and take some time to listen to (and contribute) busking - sometimes very high quality!
