Broomielaw is a major thoroughfare in the City of Glasgow, UK. It runs adjacent to the River Clyde, on its North Bank through the International Financial Services District.

History[edit]

Named after Brumelaw Croft the street runs from Jamaica Bridge to Finnieston Quay.

Glasgow’s first quay was built at Brumelaw in 1688.[1] Paddle steamers ran from here to the coast for day trips to the seaside and for some business people to commute.[2]
