Nice shops, but all close at 6-7 PM

In my country shops are open pretty late. When can one go to shop? During his worktime? No, in the evening - till 8-9 PM should the stores work.

At Christmas it is a sight to see with the decorations and lights. This street has every shop you would need for everything you need. The architecture is worth seeing and enjoying. Totally pedestrianized which makes it safe for everybody.

One of my favourite places to go shopping. A huge variety of shops to suit all people and a variety of budgets. There really is something for everyone! The street is positioned on quite a steep hill so it does sometimes put me off if I have my elderly relatives with me or have a lot to buy and have... More

Buchanan Street is one of the main shopping streets in Glasgow and if you visit on a weekend, especially if it is around a holiday, you will see street performers and it has a buzzing atmosphere. It also has some decent shops, for all price ranges and can be accessed easily by public transport.

Buchanan street is the heart of Glasgow commercial and shopping. It's pedestrian only so it's a good place to wander among shops

This is the most busiest street in Glasgow I guess. There are many shops and restaurants along the street. You can reach it by walking a few minutes from the main train station.
