- Glasgow Central Station, Gordon St., Glasgow, G1 3SL
This event was originally advertised to go ahead on 21 July 2018. Due to reasons out of our control, the tour will now take place on Saturday 4 August. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Explore one of Glasgow’s most iconic landmarks, from the platforms to the subterranean vaults on a Glasgow Central Tour! The tour explores many parts of the station. You’ll find yourself walking through tunnels, boiler rooms and darkened basements, exploring the dark corners of Glasgow Central Station’s subterranean sprawl below the streets. Walk down winding stairwells, turn sharp corners and before you know it you’ll find yourself in the underground vaults beneath the station – built as store houses for a city at the peak of its power as the technological and industrial beating heart of a long ago empire. The architecture and engineering make Glasgow Central Station not only an inspiring spectacle of stunning craftsmanship but also a transportation hub of great beauty.
This tour will be of particular interest to those who are interested in railway history.
The visit will end at approx 14:00 hrs. Light refreshments will be provided afterwards.
