The original Aberdeen Joint Station was built in 1867, but the building we see today completed construction in 1916 on the same site. Although Aberdeen Joint Station was not the primary railway terminus in Aberdeen when it was first built, it has become the busiest Scottish station north of Glasgow and Edinburgh; and the name was formally changed to Aberdeen railway station in 1952.
Located in the centre of Aberdeen city, the station is ideally placed to bring commuters, tourists, and visitors into the heart of Aberdeen with onward transport links available. Now serving CrossCountry trains, LNER, ScotRail and the Caledonian Sleeper; Aberdeen has become an ultra-connected station in Scotland to make holidays in the highlands or shopping days especially easy – wherever you’re travelling from.
Aberdeen station serves a large variety of railway routes from all over the UK, making it the perfect destination for a Scottish staycation or an ideal starting point for journeys both north and south.
