    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.

    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.
