Glasgow Shopping Mile - The Style Mile
Glasgow has cleverly encapsulated its main shopping streets under one umbrella: The Style Mile. Known to be the UK’s best shopping experience outside of London’s West End, it is the perfect place for any shopaholic.
Shopping in Glasgow could not be more convenient with a close concentration of shops in one area, bringing together the city’s many department stores, shopping centres and high street brand stores, as well as high-end designer labels. In total, over 200 stores make up the Style Mile. And, it doesn’t end there. Nestled amongst them are endless numbers of cosy and stylish cafes, bars and restaurants for that well-needed rest during some retail therapy.
Many of the stores in the Style Mile are housed in Glasgow’s most historic buildings, so as well as a fantastic shopping experience you will also absorb some of the city’s beautiful architecture.
The three main shopping streets that snake through the city centre are Sauchiehall Street, Buchanan Street and Argyle Street, also known as the ‘Golden Z’. Shopping couldn’t be easier as you start at one end and follow the flow. This is where most of the action is but there are many smaller surrounding streets that are also worth exploring. The great thing about the Style Mile is that it is mostly pedestrianised and offers late night shopping every Monday to Wednesday and Friday, when it is open until 7pm. The majority of shops are also open on Sundays.
