Getting to Celtic Park

The famous Celtic Park football stadium in Glasgow is the largest stadium in Scotland. It was the biggest club stadium in Britain when it was built in the 1990s and is now the 8th largest stadium in the UK.

Celtic Park Stadium is situated in the heart of Glasgow, which means getting there on a CrossCountry train is as easy as can be. We have nearby routes from Motherwell to Glasgow or Edinburgh to Glasgow. You can even find a route from Penzance to Glasgow or Bristol to Glasgow.

As a major transport hub for the city, Glasgow Central station is only fifteen minutes from Celtic Park by taxi, and thirty minutes by bus. You can take a local train from Glasgow Central to Dalmarnock or Bridgeton which are both within half a mile of the stadium. If you prefer to walk the stadium is around a 45-minute leisurely walk away.

About Celtic Park

Also known as Paradise (thanks to a local journalist) the first Celtic Park stadium opened in 1888, one year after the formation of Celtic Football Club. The club moved to its present address four years later, and it has remained their home ever since.

The 1990s saw a significant redevelopment of the local area. The European City of Culture award in 1990 acted as a catalyst for regeneration for Glasgow. In the Celtic Park area, this included new housing and expansion of the Forge Shopping Centre nearby which added a new indoor market and a bingo hall.

Today this forty-million pound stadium is home to the Celtic Football Club; but over the years has also hosted rugby games, concerts and was used for the spectacular opening ceremony of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Although the modern stadium only officially seats 60,832 people, Celtic scored a record attendance of over 90,000 people back in 1938. 130 years after its first kick-off game, Celtic Park is still shining brightly as one of the United Kingdom’s, premier sporting stadiums.
