Trains to Glasgow Find train times and tickets

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 assertive 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.

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.
