Meadowhall and Metro Centre?
It is the same sort of set up for the Metro Centre. I thought i was stretching it a bit.I can't speak for Metro Centre as I have never been there but I'm not sure Meadowhell would meet the criteria for being within a shopping centre as you enter the shopping centre from the train station via a walkway which takes you over the bus station, Meadowhall Rd and River Don.
Although totally independent of them. They were built on the site of some old sidings and were demolished by a huge gas explosion with significant loss of life. They have since been rebuilt and, in common with many high streets, house a large number of charity shops.Clarkston in Glasgow is at the end of a row of shops.
Excluding Argyle Street and Glasgow Central's Argyle St entrances underneath the Heileman's Umbrella, the only other rail stations within Glasgow's city limits that really fit the OP's criteria in any way shape or form are Kelvinhall & Hillhead, both on the Subway. The rest of the system's station entrances/exits are either part of a completely seperate structure or part of a heavy rail station (Partick).Argyle Street in Glasgow is pretty low key for a city centre station.
There is a small side entrance/exit to Central which avoids the shops!The entrance to (Liverpool) Moorfields looks more like the entrance to a shopping centre than a station... Liverpool Central has a small mall inside the building too, which you have to pass through to access the platforms.
The main entrance to Southport is definitely through a shopping centre. There is a secondary entrance (on the Northern side), which avoids them.Southport and James Street, Liverpool is just an entrance on the side street not in shops although when I used it, it was stonking down with rain and wasn't looking at much around me
Yeah, the layout of Kingston station has changed completely, although to be fair, that "side" entrance does face a busier part of town, and reflects major changes to the road layout over the years.
The entrance from Princes Mall (now rebranded Waverley Mall) was temporary while Waverley steps were being upgraded and has been closed for many years. Waverley Steps predates the shopping centre. The lift access on the North side of the station is from the roof of Waverley Mall but does not require entering the mall.and the fact that one entrance is through the Princes Mall
