Glasgow is the largest retail centre in the UK after London and one of Europe's leading destinations for shopping breaks. The pedestrianised zones of Argyle Street, Buchanan Street and Sauchiehall Street provide a superb selection of major high street shops and department stores.

Elegant architecture and designer boutiques make Buchanan Street a popular haunt for fashion gurus in their quest for the latest designer clothing. At the top end of Buchanan Street is the Buchanan Galleries which is home to over 80 retail stores. More exclusive boutiques can be discovered around Merchant City, The Italian Centre and Princes Square.

In the west end, the Byres Road area enjoys a host of speciality retail outlets for antiques and art enthusiasts, continental style delicatessens and café bars. De Courcy’s Arcade in the narrow cobbled Cresswell Lane is Glasgow's ultimate bohemian shopping experience, housing an eclectic range of second-hand clothing, speciality gift shops, music and book stores.

Out of town, Glasgow has an excellent range of suburban shopping malls. Braehead, situated 5 miles along the M8 from the city centre, enjoys a stunning riverside location accessible by bus, car and even boat from the city centre. It boasts more than 100 outlets and stores under one roof, an ice rink and a great selection of eateries. To the east of the city, Glasgow Fort is the newest out-of-town shopping experience with 70 large outlets.

With such an excellent variety of retail outlets, boutiques and department stores, Glasgow lives up to its reputation as a premiere UK shopping destination.
