Clean and efficient station with easy to read train boards and lots of restaurants and shops while you wait. Ideal for trains to southwest of England.

Bank holiday weekend visit, it was busy but all went smoothly. A relatively easy place to walk round, a good selection of places for refreshment though 30 pence to use toilets excessive.
