This is one of main shopping streets of Glasgow, however , it's rather unpleasant as of 2017. Very rundown, many emptry shopfronts, full of begars (professional or not). Has the usual tkmax and new look etc., and many pound shops... Unispiring street to be walking in.

Well known shopping street in central Glasgow. Lots of chain stores and partly a pedestrian precinct . Buchanan galleries sits at one end of the street. A recent fire in a nightclub has caused a number of the shops here to be closed, near Renfied Street.

I came here in the past 2009/2010 and hated it then I did not feel safe. Its run down area of Glasgow fast forward til 2017 and a lot of buildings are have degraded to the point of demolition time. Lots of run down pubs shops my friends said they will not come here not even during the day. Street isn't safe isn't clean nothing here apart from homes shops and business in disrepair no roofs on some buildings nothing special or nice about this part of Glasgow

This is one of the shopping streets in Glasgow. At the west part of Sauchiehall street are a lot of hotels and restaurants to find. Anyway along this street there are restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs, offices. In the city centre is a pedestrian shopping area with a lot of souvenir shops. The most interesting is the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

Although this was once an upmarket shopping thoroughfare- it is barely recognisable.

Dirty streets, empty units everywhere and poorly lit. This isn't a street that I would want to spend time on. It doesn't feel very safe. Particularly at night when there is a lot of shouting louts moving from bar to bar.

There are some notable clubs, bars and restaurants towards the Charing Cross end of the street but you'd need to have had a few drinks to want to traverse this grim street.
