Dundee station has a great location for the city it serves, the rather wonderful V&A Museum of Scottish Design and the museum dedicated to the ship named Discovery and Scott’s exhibition to the South Pole, are across the street.
The city centre is a five minute walk, turn left and go straight ahead up Union Street.
Dundee station has also been recently re-built and as a result it is now easier to use than it ever has been before.
The main station building, which houses the ticket office is located on a bridge above the railway tracks, but it is linked to the platforms (tracks) by escalators and lifts.
From the foot of the escalators a new passage way, which is where the station café is located, gives access to and from the trains.
The station only has four platforms (tracks)
1 – for express trains to Edinburgh and Glasgow the LNER trains to London, the Cross Country train to Leeds, Birmingham and the South-West.
2 and 3 – most of the slower trains to Edinburgh and Glasgow leave from here and these platforms are set further back, beyond the buildings at platform level
4 – trains to Aberdeen
