    Staff here are rude and don't know their arses from their elbows don't bother asking for help it's easier to figure it out on your own!

    For some reason extremely popular with train spotters. Maybe it's the trains?

    For hot drinks on Sunday evenings, platform 4 has a Pumpkin Cafe which is open (at least until 8pm)

    An excellent Costa Coffee on the platform, and there's now a new Subway kiosk on the south bound platform as well - good improvement in facilities

    Only ever seem it from the train and while going to/from London. Not welcoming enough to step off the train and explore.

    The people watching here is unlike any around. Watch out for the sad train spotters, smack-heads and the chav brigade. That said, all routes south lead to London in 1hr 35min so, can't be that bad :)

    Try and find the Likely Lads. If you're under 35 this probably won't make any sense to you.

    Agree with the train spotters thing. Seen at least 3 standing with their cameras when I passed. Be sure to give them a wave, or stick the fingers up, whatever you wish.

    This place is like Mecca for trainspotters. Most of them are alright really but you always get one randomer chatting you up!

    The Frenchgate car park is a breathtaking £10.50 per day. You have been warned.

    This is a great place to catch a train... unfortunately that's about it but don't worry visitors to Doncaster, the apocalypse didn't happen, it's just how things are round here.
