Travel and Accommodations


TRAINS TO GLASGOW

Taking a train into Glasgow is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel to the 2022 Annual Meeting and the city has two major train stations: The Glasgow Queen Street station and Glasgow Central Station. The main UK train companies operating in Scotland are:

Scotrail - For traveling in and around Scotland

Avanti West Coast - When traveling to and from London via Glasgow

East Coast - When traveling to and from London via Edinburgh

Glasgow's central location makes it the ideal city to travel to by train, as you can get to and from Glasgow from anywhere in the UK in roughly 4 hours.


FLIGHTS TO GLASGOW

Glasgow is served by three international airports with connections all across the world.

The Glasgow Airport is located eight miles (13 kilometres) west of Glasgow City Center and services well over 130 direct flights from many UK and European cities.

The Glasgow Prestwick Airport is located 32 miles (51 kilometres) south west of the city and serves European destinations.

Lastly, Edinburgh Airport is located 39 miles (63 kilometres) outside of Glasgow and serves most major international airlines. Upon arriving at the Edinburgh airport, you can take a taxi, bus or train to get to Glasgow.
