Nice walk

There are plenty of shops and bars on both sides of this street. One part is a pedestrian walking area. I still do not know what the focus of this street! ;-)

About half of the street (that nearest the city centre is pedestrianized) with the rest open to traffic. This is one of the main shopping streets of the city and also has plenty of eateries. Benches to sit on and buskers to entertain at times. Gets very busy at lunchtimes though!

I think this is an area of Glasgow that can't quite decide what it wants to be. There were plenty of bars, some fun shops, restaurants that looked great and those that looked toxic. Toss in two guys in leather jackets and an attitude that said Russian Mob, and it was all in all a great stroll. I reckon I'd... More

This used to be a lovely street to walk down with interesting Glasgow life to observe. Now it is dirty with many close off shop fronts and I seen at least 6 homeless people sleeping in the street and many more beggars. I would not recommend it as a street to visit in Glasgow.

A walk along this long road shows you Glasgow, as you walk from the top to the Galleria every aspect of the people and town can be seen. Restaurants move into shops and pedestrian area. It's vibrant and cosmopolitan and worth a stroll.

Fairly quiet by day but it absolutely comes alive at night during the University time. Its sad to say but if you are getting on in years you should just head down to the other end by buchannan st as the west end by the Mitchell is definitely catering to university students intent on blowing their loans on a who...

I was expecting more of Sauchiehall street. It was grungy, but maybe that's indicative of Glasgow's real life. I was surprised at the number of closed "unlet" shops. As a tourist, hopefully this is the seedier side of the places we will frequent over the course of our Glasgow holiday. One brilliant thing about this street is it is a... More

This infamous Central Glasgow street never fails to through something interesting at you. Whether it's a busker with a fantastic voice or like today a 70plus man dressed in work clothes and fluorescent tabard hitting dustbins for drums along to some happy hardcore!!! Quite long street full of shops, cafes and takeaways. No high end stuff but a decent selection... More

I know I'm in Glasgow when I walk along Sauchiehall Street. It's full of vibe and great shops to go shopping in, or just to take a peak in at the windows. If you want something to eat, no problem. Plenty of establishments to cater for all your needs. Drink I hear you say? Sauchiehall Street caters for that too.... More
