    Great way to get into central London by boarding a fast Thameslink Train straight to London Bridge Station, usually from platform 1.

    First/last chance to use contactless payment or Oyster cards - it's often cheaper to buy tickets to/from here and just to use a contactless payment card within London.

    Come out the back entrance in the morning and buy your coffee from RoCo in Ruskin Square.

    All that you want to forget about stations. Pass through and don't get off. Basic and surly for such a major stop on the southern lines.

    You can get trains to Clapham and Victoria very regular from here. You can also catch the tram between New Addington and Wimbledon from here. AMT coffee is a great place to get coffee.

    There are no departure boards past the gates on the concourse. However if you go down to the platforms you'll find them.

    One of the most chaotic and less customer friendly stations in the UK

    Ask people for help on the platform as the call button machine just keeps ringing and no one answers and make sure to stand bear zig zag lines as trains only stop there

    Costa attached to the station, and Starbucks on platform 1 and 2 are great when you've got time to kill.

    I feel sorry for anyone who lives in, or has to commute to/from, this grim excuse for civilisation.

    AMT coffee always good. Friendly staff too. Can't be easy dealing with grumpy (for good reason, train operators are shite) commuters.

    Find the "fastest train to" monitor as its the most useful. Don't trust announcements!

    Constant vigilance required: platform changes are frequent, last minute and often require running over 'don't run' signs. Plus staff are clueless/don't care

    Delice de France likes to shut early. Should shut at 9pm, but can be seen closing its doors anytime from 8:30- with loads of food still left over!

    Be prepared to queue if you're buying something from WH Smith. There is no fast payment facility for newspapers and you'll be delayed whilst they try and upsell giant Galaxy bars to other customers.

    Best tea is Pumpkin cafe on Platform 1&2 and 5&6 - PG tips and it's a reasonable price for a station too.

    AMT coffee stall. The one place you can actually buy a coffee rather than americano or daily brew or some other equally shite name. Also, it's small medium and large rather than tall, grande etc!

    Try to set off 10 mins earlier than scheduled time if travelling in the morning as queues are horrendous.

    If you're heading towards London, check the number of coaches of your train & check the first carriage stop position along the platform so you can travel at the front and be first at London exit gates

    Everything in the Delice de France on platform 3 will be cold. I suppose that might not come as a surprise.
