TO REACH THE MAIN RAIL STATIONS
This page describes our recommended routes to Glasgow Queen Street and Central stations. You can use the bus service which serves all three stations, or take a short walk. Although it may be quicker to reach Central Station by continuing south along West Nile Street, the route we suggest here passes through a more interesting shopping area along Buchanan Street.
This bus serves the stop in Killermont Street opposite John Lewis. On arrival at Queens Street, you're outside the east entrance (North Hanover Street) and at Central, you're outside the travel centre.
Whilst the North Hanover Street entrance will continue to be used by pedestrians, I know the taxi rank is no longer there and I'm not sure now, exactly where the bus stops, nor do we know whether it will continue to stop there once the development of the station concourse gets underway.
At Glasgow Central Station, turn left and locate the station entrance on your right.
Describe Online has published a guide to Glasgow Central Station and a guide to Glasgow Queen Street Station, though this latter will need to be revised in the light of forthcoming development of the station.
Leave via the main entrance, turn left (south) and continue to the pavement and turn right along Killermont Street.
Take the first turning left into West Nile Street, continue (south) then turn left again (east) into Sauchiehall Street, following this round to your right (south) into Buchanan Street.
Continue (south) along the left-hand side of Buchanan Street, crossing Bath Sttreet then going down the three flights of steps outside the Buchanan Galleries.
Note that Queen Street Station is about to be redeveloped and we understand that Dundas Lane is now closed. We also understand that the Dundas Street and George Square entrance will be closed in due course, leaving the only available entrances to the high and low level sections of the station from North Hanover Street.
Until this happens, you can turn left, along the left-hand (north) side of West George Street. The first turning left is Dundas Street. You can turn left here, up the hill then turn right into the station. This is the most convenient entrance for the lower level and the travel centre.
Otherwise, you can carry on (east) then take the next turning left, up the slope and ten steps into the concourse. If you need step-free access here, cross the entrance road, turn left and follow the pavement up then left and turn right at the top into the concourse.
When the concourse development starts, we suggest you turn left (east) along Killerment Street then turn right along North Hanover Street and continue to the station entrance on your right. Details of this route lay beyond the scope of this survey.
Continue (south) on Buchanan Street, across West George Street and St Vincent Place. You could cross Buchanan Street now. Take the first right turn into Gordon Street and continue (west) along the left-hand side, crossing Mitchell Street then Union Street, till you reach the station entrance.
