The Buchanan Street Centre is located in the heart of Glasgow, in Scotland's most famous shopping and retail district. A major feature of this stunning large Victorian building is the impressive sandstone entrance archway giving access to four floors. Glasgow's fantastic array of shops, hotels, restaurants and bars are on the doorstep and Buchanan Street itself is home to a number of exclusive shops and recently won the Academy of Urbanism 'Great Street Award'. One of the fastest growing cities in the UK, Glasgow is Scotland's largest urban economy and is dominated by financial and business services, public administration, health and retail. It is one of Europe's 16 largest financial centres with a growing number of 'blue-chip' financial sector companies establishing significant operations or headquarters in the city. It also forms the western part of Scotland's 'Silicon Glen' hi-tech sector.
