    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.

    Daniel Bryden · March 11
  • Crazycol

    Busy during rush hour try and use other exits/entrances if you can.

    Crazycol · January 28
  • Jeff M.

    I hate this place. It's the Mordor of transportation.

    Jeff Melnyk · January 26
  • Bijan Y.

    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.

    Bijan Young · January 19
  • Chris H.

    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.

    Chris Haines · November 9, 2014
  • Amin A.

    Good coffee shops on the station.

    Amin Afsari · October 31, 2014
  • Amin A.

    Super busy when trains are canceled here and there on rainy days.

    Amin Afsari · October 29, 2014
  • Amin A.

    Quite organised station.

    Amin Afsari · October 29, 2014
  • Ben A.

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

    Ben Adelie · October 12, 2014
  • Will R.

    The rear exit is more convenient for the Premier inn and Jury's inn

    Will Riley · September 23, 2014
  • Enzo M.

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

    Enzo Martinelli · September 15, 2014
  • Janet C.

    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

    Janet Cheung · September 1, 2014
  • Alex I.

    Cool area to relax

    Alex Ikan · November 30, 2013
  • ship

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

    ship · November 9, 2013

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

    Andrew · October 25, 2013
  • M M.

    Pure chaos 👎

    This is the busiest station outside of Zone 1 – take care and make sure your valuables are safe and secure – join in with #TheTactics on Twitter. Read more

    British Transport Police · August 30, 2013

    An evil place.

    Mark Evans · July 6, 2013
  • Jem W.

    Lovely Delice De France on platform 5...

    Jem Wilkinson · July 5, 2013
  • Square Biz

    WH Smith closes at least 30 minutes before *official* closing time - you've been warned!!

    Square Biz · June 18, 2013
  • Stephen M.

    Watch out! Everyone is running for their train!

    Stephen Marriott · May 22, 2013
  • Laurence R.

    Where the trains are always late

    Laurence Rothwell · April 13, 2013
  • Claire S.

    The seating area normally smells bad. Deal with the cold and wait on the platform

    Claire Sifah · March 5, 2013
  • Peter Q.

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

    Peter Quenault · February 26, 2013
  • Ruymán R.

    The view is depressing!

    Ruymán Rodríguez · January 6, 2013
  • Jiya K.

    Quickest way to London Bridge is with the First Capital Connect to Bedford

    Jiya K. · October 12, 2012
  • Dean B.

    Ignore anyone leaving tips that say "catch train to xxxxxx from Platform xxxxxx" arseholes

    Dean Bromley · August 10, 2012
  • Matt S.

    If you think the train is full here....wait until you get to Norwood Junction!

    Matt Smith · August 6, 2012
  • Enoch A.

    Try your best to get to this station @least 5mins b4 your train time!!!!

    Enoch Antwi · June 8, 2012
  • Nikki H.

    Burger king. Good but slow

    Nikki Hooper · May 5, 2012
  • Sunjay B.

    AMT coffee shop the best on the station, avoid upper crust baguettes, they are not fresh.

    Sunjay Bhogal · April 27, 2012
  • Luke T.

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

    Luke Timms · January 12, 2012
  • Rayhan O.

    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

    Rayhan Omar · December 26, 2011
  • Flave

    £5 note dispensing cash machines for the win! Take a right before the main exit.

    Flave · December 18, 2011
  • Markus D.

    £9 for two tins of stella and a mag

    Markus Darkus · December 5, 2011
  • James C.

    It has the starbucks

    James Cornwall · November 21, 2011
  • Wesley A.

    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!

    Wesley A · November 14, 2011
  • Rob S.

    London bridge leaves from platform 4

    Rob Sked · October 20, 2011
  • Fletch F.

    Use the mirrors in the platform tunnels to save yourself smashing into someone's face #win

    Fletch Fletcher · October 18, 2011
  • Astrid K.

    Platform 4 for trains to Honor Oak Park, Forest Hill, can change to overground line at these stations...if you're headed for east London

    Astrid Keogh · October 6, 2011
  • Iain W.

    Not good for freight trains!

    Iain Wright · September 28, 2011
  • Rhammel A.

    Frequent fast trains to Clapham Junction!

    Rhammel Afflick · September 18, 2011
  • Simon G.

    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.

    Simon Gosney · August 29, 2011
  • S R.

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

    S R · August 17, 2011

    Trains to South Croydon are always from Platform 6.

    BANNERWORX Bear · August 7, 2011

    A very good and helpful Starbucks on platform 1

    BANNERWORX Bear · July 31, 2011
  • Stephen O.

    Very secure place, there's more police than staff here!!

    Stephen Ojeda · July 22, 2011
  • Philip A.

    If you have time to spare, nip over to the Porter and Sorter for a pint.

    Philip Allega · April 11, 2011
  • Luke T.

    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!

    Luke Timms · March 13, 2011
