First class ticket holders can use the private lounge (located in the ticket office at Gordon st entrance) Very comfortable & complimentary hot drinks machine(latte, hot chocolate, tea etc). Crisps, nuts, cakes. Good place to wait to board train.

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

close to my hotel, very convenient. I just walked over, bought a ticket from the machine, or there is also a ticket selling office just outside, they do need a few more seats.

We used the lounge on Saturday 03 November 2018 due to an early start before heading to England. On first appearances the lounge is clean and warm, however, it is a bit of a fish bowl with the large ground floor windows as everyone walking...More
