The retail experience

Visit Glasgow, the second largest shopping centre in the UK

The quality of the retail offering in the Glasgow area draws tourists and locals alike to seek out designer items or search for bargains in the city centre and out of town.

Two of Glasgow's major shopping streets, Argyle Street and Buchanan Street are very close to the river, offering a huge amount of choice within easy walking distance of Glasgow's two main line train stations.

In Argyle Street a major refurbishment of the St Enoch Centre has created a massive boost to the area. The redevelopment of this flagship shopping mall has created a city-centre destination not to be missed by serious shoppers.

Across the river, the Braehead shopping centre has seen phenomenal success since it opened in 1999. A shopper's heaven, the centre was built on a brown-field site close to the river and has around 100,000 sq m of shopping space and over 100 shops. In its short life it has become one of Scotland's most popular shopping destinations.
