Buchanan Street Glasgow image

Buchanan Street is situated in the centre of Glasgow, and runs from south to north, from Argyle Street, behind where this image was taken, to Sauchiehall Street, at the Royal Concert Hall, as seen in the distance. Buchanan Galleries Shopping Centre is next to the Royal Concert Hall. Also off Buchanan Street, close to where this image was taken, is the trendy Princes Square Shopping Centre.

Buchanan Street was laid out in 1777, and named after a wealthy Tobacco Lord, Andrew Buchanan of Buchanan, Hastie, & Co. The street is now one of the top shopping areas with a number of high-end stores.

The street was re-paved in 1999 with high quality granite, and at night, is lit up with blue neon lighting.

On the east side, right in this image, is the Royal Exchange Square with the Gallery of Modern Art, and a number of cafe's with outdoor seating.

Up at the building with the spire, on the left, is Nelson Mandela Place, formerly St George's Place, with a number of fine victorian buildings, including the St George's Tron Church.
