Around 5 miles from Central Station (other stations are available!).

See their webpage for travel options:

It’s just over 4 miles from Glasgow Central - if that is the station you are arriving at...... otherwise.....

If it is Central, then!

Come out the side entrance near Platform 1, down the stairs into Union St.

Cross the street and walk down that side, you will see numerous Bus Stops (3-4), look out for the one with Stagecoach X19, this is the Express Bus direct to the door of the Hospital.

This bus has its own dedicated “Fastlink” Corridor, it only takes about 15 minutes to the Hospital.

Nearest station is Cardonald, it's about .9 miles from the station to the Hospital. The service from Central is usually the Gourock service, takes about 7 minutes and is roughly every half hour.

For a stranger to Glasgow the X19 bus from Central Station as mentioned above is the easiest way to go.

This bus is fast and frequent.

Thanks al it will be whichever station the Liverpool train goes to.

We are arriving on the Sunday and have to be at the hospital at lunchtime on Monday, so will probably stay in centre and get a taxi.

Any nice hotel recommendations this is a business trip?

Two hotels within walking distance would be Carlton George and Hotel Indigo.

If you fancy something else ask here for advice.

As Liverpool is a Branch off the West Coast Mainline then it will Central.

Hotels nearby are Grand Central (right above the Station) Raddison Blu And Motel One.

A bit further down 5 mins walk is the Jury’s Inn.

Marriott an Hilton are 10 mins walk.

Taxi from the Centre to the Hospital is around £14
