Buchanan Street, Glasgow
(4.5/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Buchanan Street and other attractions that appeal to you using our Glasgow vacation trip planner.
