Glasgow Central is the main station in the city for connections to the south, including Ayrshire, the Clyde Coast, and destinations throughout England. A short walk from Glasgow Central is Glasgow Queen Street, for trains to Edinburgh and the north.
About Hampden Park
Hampden Park in Glasgow has been home ground to the Scottish national football team, who have played at the stadium for over a hundred years. It is also home ground to Queen’s Park FC, a uniquely amateur club in the Scottish Professional Football League since it was founded in 1867, making it the oldest club in the country.
When it opened in 1903, Hampden Park was the largest and most technologically advanced stadium in the world, but by the 1970s, the original construction clearly needed an upgrade. Over two decades, the stands, concourses and supporter facilities were brought into the new millennium, and it’s now graded a Five Star Stadium by UEFA.
Used for the final stages of the Scottish cup competitions, and a regular host of major European finals, the stadium also has music concerts and other sporting events. To visit the stadium outside big games, it’s worth paying to watch Queen’s Park because their average attendance is around 750 in a stadium that holds nearly 52,000, or maybe you could take a tour of the spiritual home of football and visit the Scottish Football Museum as part of a package known as the Hampden Experience.
