Really mainly used to enter/exit the station. Not the healthiest places to stand with all the traffic, but there are a lot of different sights to behold. There are a few independent shops here, along with a chippy, restaurant, newsagents, tanning salon. Always busy.

Well, for me, it is a way of getting from Union Street to the the Raddison Hotel or Wetherspoons. It is very unusual but do not make a special trip!

Constructed during a station rebuild of 1901 - 1905, there are many shops and a compact feeling due to the funnelling of pedestrians and traffic. The shops are a mixture of fast food outlets, phone repair shops and the like as found neighbouring many large...More

Nice piece of architecture to look at but sadly has taken its toll due to the increasingly seedy nature of the shops around it. This may be improving as a deli or two are moving in hit you have to survive the pen shops, chip...More
