We popped in on a day's sightseeing, the whole place is wood and reminded me of Hogwarts! I was waiting for the steam train and Harry Potter to arrive! Beautiful place

The major railway station of the city. Reminds me much of Liverpool lime street station. Plenty shops and an hotel in the station.

Lived in Glasgow all our days and only recently heard about this tour so thought we'd give it a go. The tour, in our view, is still in its infancy and lasts about an hour or so. However, it was excellent and we would have...More

Informative, funny & poignant. The tour was all the more touching in the week preceeding the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 . We had heard the tour was interesting but it surpassed our expectations. This is a must for all Glaswegians & visitors...More

We travelled to and from tis station several times on our "Highland Railway Tour". It is a large station and hasn't been modernised much. There is a guide apparently, but we didn't find him.

Looking dated compared to other major city rail terminus' elsewhere in the UK and Scotland. Long wait for tickets if local ticket office is shut and you need a ticket prior to going through barriers.

venture under the station to a little cafe with all the charm of yesteryears and you will be served a most hearty Scottish breakfast that will set you up for the day we return several times during our visit
