Description

“Inverclyde’s Historical Railway Stations” Travel with us on our journey through Inverclyde to marvel at the spectacular architecture and learn the fascinating history of some of our finest railway stations. We go from Port Glasgow Station in the east, with its outstanding new mural display, to the recently refurbished Wemyss Bay Station, with its new Angel Hunter sculpture of a boy going on holiday, in the west. Hear how the railway was built, how a new mineral was discovered and how the longest railway tunnel in Scotland came to be. Also hear about the strategic role the pierhead stations played during World Wars, and the importance they had in making Inverclyde a ‘doon the watter’ holiday destination.

Bus access may not be suitable for those with mobility restrictions.

(Free car parking is available at the adjacent Hastie Street Car Park)

Duration approx. 3 hours
