Coming from Glasgow it’s easy to forget how lucky we are to have such great shopping on our doorstep. You constantly dream of shops in the big cities further afield, i.e London or New York and even though we will be visiting said cities soon, Glasgow is top of our list right now!
Glasgow’s main shopping mall, Buchanan street is completely pedestrianised apart from the two traffic crossings making it a relaxed place to shop til you drop . It houses some of the most famous names in shopping and is also home to the wonderful Princes Square. A hidden gem in amongst the hustle and bustle of the busy street, Princes square offers a huge range of great places to grab a bite to eat and some really high-end boutique stores, such as Vivienne Westwood, Jo Malone and Dower and Hall.
As the quote by Mitch Albom goes,
And we couldn’t agree more.
~ Tom Ford
There is as an added bonus, the Italian Centre in the Merchant City which boasts a selection of individual wine bars and restaurants as well as plenty of designer clothes shops for those of us who want to pretend.
Shopping in Glasgow is a great to get out and about, especially around this time year when the city is coming alive for Christmas. Admire the beautiful lights in Royal Exchange Square, skate til your hearts content on the ice rink at George Square or marvel in the magical atmosphere in Frasers or Princes Square.
So allow yourself to marvel in the delights that Glasgow has to offer. Go home with your suitcase a little heavier... It would be rude not to.
