Trains to Glasgow

Glaswegians relish their city’s long-standing rivalry with the capital in Edinburgh. Visitors to Glasgow discover a city which is altogether edgier and more assertively Scottish than Edinburgh. Glasgow is Scotland with style so make for the Style Mile in the heart of the city for world-class shopping.

Glasgow has reinvented itself, swapping bleak industrial heritage for chic modernity with many remarkable museums and galleries. Don’t miss the Burrell Collection, the Gallery of Modern Art and the museum and gallery at Kelvingrove. Another star attraction is the Glasgow Museum of Transport, housed in a stunning riverside building designed by Zaha Hadid. In 2018, that transport museum pulled more visitors than any other tourist sight in Glasgow.

There are two major railway stations in the middle of Glasgow: Central and Queen Street. Both are two-level affairs, so check carefully whether your train departs from the lower-level platforms or from the upper-level main station.

From Queen Street, there are several fast trains per hour to Edinburgh. There are also direct trains from Queen Street to Fort William, Mallaig, Stirling, Aberdeen and Inverness. Glasgow Central is the departure point for fast trains to London, Manchester and Birmingham. It is also the station for trains to the Clyde coast and south-west Scotland. Central also has fast trains to Edinburgh, although they are less frequent than from Queen Street.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
