I was expecting more of Sauchiehall street. It was grungy, but maybe that's indicative of Glasgow's real life. I was surprised at the number of closed "unlet" shops. As a tourist, hopefully this is the seedier side of the places we will frequent over the course of our Glasgow holiday. One brilliant thing about this street is it is a... More

This infamous Central Glasgow street never fails to through something interesting at you. Whether it's a busker with a fantastic voice or like today a 70plus man dressed in work clothes and fluorescent tabard hitting dustbins for drums along to some happy hardcore!!! Quite long street full of shops, cafes and takeaways. No high end stuff but a decent selection... More

I know I'm in Glasgow when I walk along Sauchiehall Street. It's full of vibe and great shops to go shopping in, or just to take a peak in at the windows. If you want something to eat, no problem. Plenty of establishments to cater for all your needs. Drink I hear you say? Sauchiehall Street caters for that too.... More

At the heart of Glasgow centre this a spot that will never disappoint you, no matter how many times you have been there. It is busting of noise, busy, colourful, and plenty of things to be entertained with. It is basically a pedestrian street running downwards from the Train and tube Station to Argyll Street and the river of Clyde.... More

Full of the usual stuff that you find in every city.Shops some bars and restaurants. Run down at one end but better as it gets towards the centre.

Ths along with Argyle Street has always bee Glasgow's shopping street. Many things have changed but this has remained so. One end s n the downtown area and the other leaves you Art Gallery and Kelvingrove Park. A must visit while in the city.

Although the old established department stores of years ago are gone, Sauchiehall Street is still a good shopping venue with a wide variety of shops, eateries and no traffic. The Buchanan Galleries at the end of the road offer a huge range of shops in a three level centre/
