Buchanan Street Glasgow image

Buchanan Street is situated in the centre of Glasgow, running 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.

The Argyll Arcade is also off Buchanan Street, just south of Princes Square, with about 30 Jewellery Shops.

Buchanan Street was laid out in 1777, named after a wealthy Tobacco Lord, Andrew Buchanan of Buchanan, Hastie, & Co, as they had a Townhouse here and acquired planning permission to develop the area. The Street is now one of the top shopping areas in Scotland 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.
