The Style Mile
Everyone knows that Glaswegians live, breathe, eat and sleep
style. Little wonder that, in the very heart of the marvellous city
they call home, one square mile houses the most extraordinary
concentration of inspirational shopping, atmospheric cafés, fine
restaurants, and decadent late night haunts.
The style mile is home to every fashion thrill, from niche to
mainstream, from unique designer showspaces to flagship stores for
every major British retailer. The style mile is the place to
Glasgow's style mile has malls, independent boutiques, designer
stores and one-off speciality shops including: Buchanan Quarter (the
city's latest new retail quarter), Buchanan
Galleries, St Enoch
Lewis, House of
Square, Hamleys and Argyll Arcade. When the
shopping is done relax, have a drink or enjoy a meal and soak up
the enchanting atmosphere.
"Boasting the UK's largest retail phalanx outside
London, Glasgow is a shopaholic's paradise. The 'Style Mile'
around Buchanan St, Argyle St and Merchant City is a
fashion hub, while the West End has quirkier,
more bohemian shopping options."
