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.
