Stretching from Sauchiehall Street down to St Enoch Square, Buchanan Street is one of the major thoroughfares in Glasgow city centre and one of the best places to shop too. Here you will find high street favourites Aldo, Urban Outfitters, New Look, Zara, All Saints, Forever 21 and Office as well as popular brands such as Diesel, Jack Wills, Puma and American Apparel.
Buchanan Street was first established in 1777 and was named after the owner of the land, Andrew Buchanan, who had died in 1759 and left his inheritance to his son. Surrounding Buchanan Street was previously Buchanan Street Railway Station which closed down in 1966 due to its inconvenient location.
Buchanan Street is the place to go in Glasgow for fantastic shopping and browsing whether you are buying for yourself or for family and friends. Frasers, a House of Fraser department store, has all you could need under one roof including an incredible Beauty Hall and designer names Prada, Gucci, Hermes, Mui Mui and Mulberry. Buchanan Galleries, at the north end of the street, has even more shops including H&M, John Lewis and The Whisky Shop. For more designer labels Princes Square is the place to go for names including Vivienne Westwood, Reiss and Ted Baker.
If you’re in need of refreshment after all the shopping there are three Starbucks along Buchanan Street as well as the iconic Willow Tea Rooms and an ice cream shop in the shape of the Tardis!
