Easy to get around, easy to get a ticket and in my few days experience, it ran like clockwork. Highly recommend it

Large railway station with trains going south and to the west coast of Scotland. Some services to Edinurgh. Some retail outlets and hotel on site. Taxis outside along with some nearby pubs and restaurants. There are some tunnel tours available.

Imposing edifice central to Glasgow’s amenities. Historic building that opens up to a wide , bright concourse. Hidden deep below the initial surroundings a tale of Glasgow’s past rail history.
