Glasgow Central Station opened in 1879 and was extended further between 1901 and 1906. The concourse was remodelled in 1985 and the station regenerated in 2003.
The entrance features ornate ironwork, and seven pillars support the glazed porte-cochere arcade with the travel centre behind and the stone edifice of the Central Hotel rising above. Internally, modern elements fuse with more traditional station architecture.
Interesting features in the station include an old station house, wooden retail units, and industrial, underground tunnels, arches and corridors. The station offices and conference rooms provide a wonderful high level view of the concourse.
