Buchanan Street, Glasgow

#1 of 48 in Shopping in Glasgow
Neighborhood · Shopping
The largest shopping street in Scotland, Buchanan Street is also known for its Victorian-era architecture. High-end, brand-name stores run along the street from north to south, but some local shops reside on the side streets. Begin at the south end of the street with the Princes Square Mall and the House of Fraser flagship store. At the north end of the street are the Buchanan Galleries and the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Both cultural attractions are worth a visit after your shopping, but take your time getting there. To visit Buchanan Street on your trip to Glasgow, use our Glasgow road trip planning site.

  • Lovely pedestrianised street with upmarket shops. When visiting COP26 was on and so difficult to focus on with protests and much quieter with people working from home.  more »
  • This is a pedestrianised street . Lots of up market shops , so mostly window shopped , but loved the street entertainment . Various singers, bagpipes , acrobats etc . Well worth a visit for this alone  more »
  • Prices have always been reasonable and spent many hours on the service which is clean, saves a lot of time and staff are helpful but not often needed once you have used it a few times. There will frequently be beggars at some stations but they are mostly harmless and friendly if you are willing to give them a bit of time and support
  • Today my husband and I used underground for first time in about a Yr, we walked up stairs at Buchanan Street station, I suffer from angina, when we got to top I couldn't breath and had to take my heart spray, Lorraine one of the station staff saw us asked if everything was OK, she then went and got a chair and a glass of water for me. We wish to thank Lorraine at Buchanan Station for her help and her caring nature. Thanks again Lorraine from John and Carol xx
