Sitting between the New Victoria Hospital and Scotland's national stadium in Glasgow, Hampden Park Football Stadium, Mount Florida train station serves the suburban areas of Mount Florida and Battlefield in Glasgow, Scotland. The station, built in 1886, consists of a single island with a platform either side, and an additional platform to the south of the main station is used on big games days at Hampden.
The bulk of trains leaving the station head for Glasgow Central, just ten minutes' journey away, from platform 1, and additional services leave platform 2 for Neilston and Newton (Lanark).
Mount Florida is largely residential with grand red- or yellow-brick townhouses lining treed avenues on the south side of Glasgow. The suburb has several links to the world of sport, with Hampden Park stadium acting as the headquarters of the Scottish Football Association and the third-division outfit, Queen's Park F.C; the area also boasts several lawn bowls clubs and an indoor sporting arena.
