Glasgow has two main national train stations: Queen Street Station [This station, along with the City Chambers, borders George Square, which is the home of several statues and a war memorial. ] and Central Station. Queen Street broadly deals with the north and east of Scotland, with departures to Dundee, Edinburgh, Stirling and Mallaig. Central similarly deals with the areas south of Glasgow, with departures to London and much of England. There are smaller local stations throughout the city.
Glasgow has an Underground, which runs in a circle (both clockwise and anti-clockwise) around Buchanan Street, Cowcaddens, St George's Cross, Kelvinbridge, Hillhead (on Byres Road), Kelvinhall, Partick, Govan, Ibrox, Cessnock, Kinning Park, Shields Road, West Street, Bridge Street and St Enoch (on Buchanan Street). The River Clyde passes between the St Enoch and Bridge St stations, and the Partick and Govan stations. An ability to walk up and down stairs is a must, as the escalators in the few stations that have them are often broken down, and few have lifts to the platforms.By Bus or Taxi
