Glasgow Central Station is a busy railway station in the Centre of Glasgow. It is a well kept station and very clean. Has a piano on the concorse which travellers themselves can play on an adhoc basis

A good, spacious and very traditional station with lots of cafes and shops. Helpful and friendly staff. Only downside is toilet facilities are down stairs, difficult to get to if you have bags. Good facilities though.
