Fodor's Review

One of the United Kingdom's grand Victorian stations, what was the Station Hotel and is now the Grand Central gives an idea of how important it was. There are several interesting small shops in the station, which serves as the departure point for trains to England and the Ayrshire coast, including Prestwick airport.

The Champagne Bar in the Central Hotel is a good vantage point for watching the station concourse and its comings and goings. The railway bridge across Argyll Street behind the station is known as the Highlandman's Umbrella because immigrants from the north once gathered there to look for work in the early 20th century.
