To the east of George Square is the Merchant City, a fashionable place to eat, drink and play. Further east is the East End, a traditional working-class stronghold, and to the north is the oldest part of Glasgow, around the medieval cathedral. West of George Square is Buchanan Street, Sauchiehall Street and Argyle Street the city's principal shopping thoroughfares. From here the streets rise towards Blythswood Square, a much quieter area of elegant late Georgian buildings turned into offices. Beyond Charing Cross is the city's West End and home of some of the city's best museums.
