Where to shop in Glasgow

Monday 23 February 2015 by Christine Ormsby

Scotland’s capital boasts a fantastic selection of shopping districts, from large complexes to historic arcades and cultural quarters, all offering a unique shopping experience.

Where to shop

Situated in the trendy George Square, a place that was once the hub of the trade generated by the city's rich 'Tobacco Lords', Merchant Square hosts an array of exclusive boutiques, arts and crafts shops, restaurants and bars. It is fast becoming one of the most exclusive destinations for shoppers looking for a relaxed but special experience.

Buchanan Galleries is Glasgow’s newest and biggest shopping centre in the heart of the city; home to all your favourite high street brands, whilst there are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops to relax in if you fancy taking a break to rest those arms.

If you’re after something that’s a bit different from the high street, then head to Prince’s Square, an upmarket shopping district that houses a range of top designer brands, quaint boutique stores and sophisticated bars and cafes over three expansive levels.

A jewellery lover’s paradise - with 32 specialist shops ranging from antique to local jewellers, Argyll Arcade is a covered street that dates back to 1827, and has an impressive glass iron-framed roof. Whether you’re looking to treat yourself, or just fancy a spot of window shopping, this is a shopping quarter worth visiting.
