Sauchiehall Street is a large pedestrian street and one of the largest shopping areas in Glasgow. I was very surprised at how cheap it was there, mainly "pound shops", ie: shops where almost all items only cost a pound. As for the houses, some are very old and there are many Georgian houses which formerly belonged to rich families of the city, before being renovated as shops in the late nineteenth century. The name Sauchiehall Street means willows. Kelningrove Street leaves the western part of the city to reach Buchanan Street, the heart of Glasgow. There are plenty of pubs and entertainment places, MeLellan galleries, a cinema and the city's Royal Concert Hall.
