At the railway station

Your journey will eventually take you to a railway station

 

Most stations have a recommended minimum connection time of 5 minutes

For larger stations and main interchange stations more time must be allowed, typically up to 20 minutes

This will allow you to leave the train, observe the platform information screens, make your way to another platform, and wait for your next connection to arrive

 

Larger stations will have additional facilities, including seated facilities, luggage trolleys, refreshments, ATM machine, toilets, baby change, showers, payphone, internet, postal box, tourist information office, shops, cycle storage, car park, ticket office, self-service ticket machines,  Left Luggage, Lost Property, Customer Service, and British Transport Police

 

For larger stations with refreshments you can take advantage of a 20% discount card at selected outlets

 

When arriving at the station you may require to pickup your ticket

At some stations you may also require your ticket in order to pass through ticket gates

 

When leaving a station you may require a taxi or bus, details are usually well signed at the exit

Where a station has more than one exit the taxi point will normally be signed separately

 

Some larger stations also have a car rental office, again this is normally signed separately

 

Where the station may be closed or unmanned, a help point is often available

This is more common at smaller stations

Often this is linked to the CCTV operator
