About Glasgow Central Tours
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 Glasgow Central 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 of Glasgow.
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. From an overcrowded congested station in 1879 to one of the most beautifully designed iconic buildings of its era.
The architecture and engineering of Anderson, Matheson and Miller make Glasgow Central Station not only an inspiring spectacle of stunning craftsmanship but also a transportation hub of great beauty.
Why does the concourse have a gradient?
Why are the main gates green and gold in colour?
and Why are there no supporting pillars to hold up the station roof on a near 4000sq metre concourse?
Come on the tour and find out.
