A good, spacious and very traditional station with lots of cafes and shops. Helpful and friendly staff. Only downside is toilet facilities are down stairs, difficult to get to if you have bags. Good facilities though.

One of the better mainline stations. Great building with iconic clock. Plenty of shops , cafes and bars. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Low level station not quite of the same standard. Only negative, cost of using the toilets.
