    Good station with lots of travel links. Book tickets in advance though to save queuing!

    Try to arrive at least 5 minutes before your train as the stairs are narrow and arriving passengers tend to be uncaring.

    How safe is your luggage? If you’re heading on the trains, look sharp and know the luggage-lifter’s tactics – it could be invaluable. Join in with #TheTactics on Twitter Read more

    'If you arrive from Waterloo, observe the Reading train on platform 5. Some masochist has decided that they should always arrive at the same time, meaning passengers must run to switch platforms.'

    Platform 1 is useless, can't even get a coffee! You have to go under to the middle platforms if you want one. Not ideal if you haven't got a long change over time!

    Look, a train! Where did it come from, you may wonder? Well don't ask me, I'm not a timetable. Go look at one of those orange and black screen things hanging from the roof, that'll tell you.

    Good place to catch a train in Basingstoke. Probably THE best place to catch a train there

    Park at the Anvil car park - can work out way cheaper and the machines actually work ;-)

    When buying tickets from machines, be sure it is what you want before confirming. They change the content & order of the screen regularly

    The best coffee and pastries are ay Cafe Destino on platform 4 - worth the detour if you are London bound.

    It has the worlds worst car park with the slowest ticket machine. Why you have to use a credit card to buy a £7 car park ticket defeats me that when the machines actually work!!

    Under no circumstances should you ever step on the 'live' rail. It can get very slippery when wet and you could hurt yourself.

    We once bought a kebab from outside the station only to find it had a whole chicken's foot in it!

    Forget the vending machines and head outside the station to the kebab van. You'll save around two thirds on drinks alone!

    Cash machine in ticket hall charges £1.99. Once you're through the gates with a ticket, the Barclays machine is free.

    Going to Reading? Make sure you get to the station about 30 minutes past the hour. You then get 3 trains to choose from in half an hour instead of waiting half an hour if the '07 train is cancelled.

    Getting to London on the first cheaper train (0917)? Park in the season ticket holder's only car park-it's open to all from 0900, spaces at the far end and only about £6 for the day.
