    The main sitation of the city. Free wi-fi. Castle is 10 minutes away by walking. Waiting room is warmer than outside. Finding a socket to charge phones is not easy. Charge them at the train.

    Surprisingly big. Get here early to get oriented & get to your track. 1st class lounge was nice but departure screen only gave us 15 minutes to catch our train when it popped up. Still, been to worse.

    navigating this train station is ridiculously hard! It took me 15 minutes to locate platform 16! Too many stairs, escalators and the like only make it even more confusing!!!

    No shops open before 5:30 except for two coffee kiosks, so if you're up for an early start, make sure you bag your morning meal elswhere.

    It is not unusual for the Glasgow Queen Street train to arrive a minute before it's due to depart back to Glasgow. And it will - make sure you're on the platform!

    On 3 April 1917 William Slater was sentenced to four months in jail for stealing a portmanteau from Edinburgh Waverley. Even today, it’s worth keeping an eye on your luggage. Read more
