To reach the main entrance from Killermont Street, go round the Tensa barrier outside the AMPM cafe then through 2 sets of automatic doors into the concourse. There's a REACT beacon outside the outer door then another above the information point on your left. Please note that the barrier, which we found at the time of our survey, is seasonal and there will be no outside seating during winter.

From Glasgow Central Station

Describe Online has published a guide to Glasgow Central Station.

By Bus

There's a bus stop outside the Travel Centre for the bus to Queen Street and Buchanan Bus stations. Leave via the main entrance, into Gordon Street and turn left. The bus stop is on your right after a few metres. On arrival at Buchanan Bus Station, you're at the bus stop in Killermont Street, outside the Bus Station.

To Walk

Although you could cross Gordon Street, turn right and take the third left into West Nile Street and continue to Killermont Street, we're recommending the following route as it passes more interesting shops and features.

Leave the station via the main entrance, into Gordon Street, turn right (east), continue across Union Street and Mitchell Street into Buchanan Street then turn left (north). Continue on the right-hand side, crossing St Vincent Place and West George Street, before continuing up six, seven then six steps. You're now outside the Buchanan Galleries; continue across Bath Street and follow the pavement round to your left into Sauchiehall Street.

Take the first turn right into West Nile Street then continue (north) across Killermont Street, then turn right.

Continue (east), past the new multi-purpose building (which was Laings Hotel) and the forecourt of the bus station and locate the wall to your left, beyond the forecourt. You can turn left here, and go round the barriers in front of the cafe, before turning right towards the concourse; or continue (east) and take either of the three entrances into the bus stance area, on your left. Note, if you find a down kerb, you've overshot and reached the first bus access road.

Note that the barriers around the front of the café are only there during summer months.

To Walk

Please note that extensive development work is about to start at Queen Street Station, details of which lie beyond the scope of this survey. We understand that the only remaining exit, whilst this work proceeds will be the North Hanover Street exit. You could follow our existing guide to Queen Street Station via this exit, onto North Hanover Street, turn left and continue to Killermont Street, which you'd cross to access the bus station.

In the mean time, the following directions apply. Note that, we understand the Dundas Lane route is now closed, so we suggest you turn left then continue to West George Street, turn right then take the first turning right into Buchanan Street.

Leave via the Dundas Street (left as you face the platforms) exit, turn left into Dundas Street, continue down the slope to West George Street, turn right then take the first turning right into Buchanan Street.

Continue, up six, seven then six steps. You're now outside the Buchanan Galleries; continue across Bath Street and follow the pavement round to your left into Sauchiehall Street.

Take the first turn right into West Nile Street then continue (north) across Killermont Street, then turn right.

Continue (east), past the multi-purpose building (which used to be the Laings Hotel) and the forecourt of the bus station and locate the wall to your left, beyond the forecourt. You can turn left here, and go round the barriers in front of the cafe, before turning right towards the concourse; or continue (east) and take either of the three entrances into the bus stance area, on your left. Note, if you find a down kerb, you've overshot and reached the first bus access road.
