Bus from Queen Street station?

We have one day in Glasgow, arriving about 10 a.m. and want to get from Queen Street station to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. Also visit the Willow Tea Rooms and anything else to do with CRM that is doable before our return train about 16.30.

Can anyone advise on suitable buses from the station, or is it better to walk?

The easiest way for a visitor is to get the subway from Buchanan St(adjacent to Queen St)

Get off at Kelvin Hall station,turn left into the main road and Kelvingrove is 7 or 8 mins walk,just past the Western Infirmary.

The Jack Vettriano exhibition is on at present in the basement where there is also a decent cafe.

It is possible to walk back to the Willow Tea Room or there are buses to Sauchiehall St.

Wholly agree with reply 1. From Queen Street station follow signs to the Buchanan Street Subway (underground railway) station. Take the Subway to Kelvin Hall station (not to be confused with Kelvinbridge).

I also agree with the previous 2 posts. And the subway is easy to use, as it only has 2 lines. The Inner Circle(grey) goes anti-clockwise. And the Outer Circle (orange) goes clockwise. Website for the subway, gives you ticket prices, map of the stations, timetables etc:

The subway from Buchanan St to Kelvinhall takes about 10mins

It actually only has 1 line. An inner and outer circle, go on the wrong circle and you will still get to your destination.
