    Jonathan Phang took the luxury train, Belmond Royal Scotsman, from here to the highlands of Scotland.

    Los trenes a Londres salen cada media hora! Sacar ticket off peak y se toman el que quieran! 👍

    The pasty shop next to platform 2 is great if you need a decent breakfast on the go.

    Andrew Macdonald · March 31
  • Russell H.

    Avoid the food stands abd visit Boots or M&S for meal deals

    Staff are so friendly and helpful

    The main sitation of the city. Free wi-fi. Castle is 10 minutes away by walking. Waiting room is warmer than outside. Finding a socket to charge phones is not easy. Charge them at the train.

    Cold cold cold. And the taxi rank is now outside the station and is a joke

    Jaimie McGuire · January 4

    Many good food options if you get to the station early.

    Chilled out station, brilliant links. Be sure to buy tickets in advance.

    Единственный в мире вокзал, носящий имя литературного героя

    Good range of shops and places to get food and drinks while waiting for trains.

  • Tyler T.

    Surprisingly big. Get here early to get oriented & get to your track. 1st class lounge was nice but departure screen only gave us 15 minutes to catch our train when it popped up. Still, been to worse.

    A good way to get around if you don't want to drive

    Brian LaVigne · September 16, 2014
  • Tino M.

    navigating this train station is ridiculously hard! It took me 15 minutes to locate platform 16! Too many stairs, escalators and the like only make it even more confusing!!!

    Gorgeous station.

    Get a meal deal from Boots for £3.29. Depending on what you choose you might end up getting £6 worth of stuff

    Majestic building just outside of the train station.

    Need more chairs and benches

    Upper crust very good food, doesn't taste like plastic or chemical

    Nicolo Weiss · April 20, 2014
  • Nicolo W.

    A bit of a mess to go around the station, too many instructions on how to get to a platform. Need one big screen next to the time table to show the platform.

    Nicolo Weiss · April 20, 2014
  • Cory C.

    Busy station but in great location!

    Cory Coupe · April 19, 2014

    It's very cold

    No shops open before 5:30 except for two coffee kiosks, so if you're up for an early start, make sure you bag your morning meal elswhere.

    Kis Voros · January 30, 2014
  • David H.

    Trains in chaos. Overhead line problems.

    David Hall · November 1, 2013

    Well worth joining Scotrail advance - free entry to first class lounge no matter what ticket you have. Wifi, tea, coffee, clean toilets and much more comfortable for waiting.

    Carole Leslie · October 30, 2013
  • Janneke B.

    The're toilets at platform 3

    Janneke Boekhorst · October 23, 2013
  • Marian C.

    It is not unusual for the Glasgow Queen Street train to arrive a minute before it's due to depart back to Glasgow. And it will - make sure you're on the platform!

    Marian Craig · October 6, 2013
  • jools S.

    Go here to catch trains to other places.

    jools Stone · October 2, 2013

    A busy place where most folks have no manners :-(

    30p for a pee! Make sure you get your 30x money's worth if you part with the Queen's coinage! 💷

    On 3 April 1917 William Slater was sentenced to four months in jail for stealing a portmanteau from Edinburgh Waverley. Even today, it’s worth keeping an eye on your luggage. Read more

    Lots of beggars sat outside station on the entrances.

    Ранее на месте вокзала Уэверли было озеро Нор Лох. Вокзал является вторым по величине в Великобритании, уступая лондонскому вокзалу Вотерлоо.

  • David J.

    Don't even think about taking a PARROT on the train - you'll regret it!

    David Jones · August 15, 2013
  • Marjorie S.

    30p to use toilets!

    I feel like crying sitting here and waiting for the train. Edinburgh i don't wanna leave you. Scotland, i love you❤

    Rose Street drinking establishments worth a visit

    Could do with better numbering of the platforms

    Great city well worth a visit

  • Sam M.

    Fabulous railway station. I like the way that nothing is accurately sign posted. If you take the stairs to princes street though you'll get one hell of a great view

    Sam Macleod · May 3, 2013
  • Jean T.

    Why is this station not called by its proper name? It's Edinburgh Waverley Station.

    Jean Thompson · April 14, 2013
  • Helen B.

    Have 30 pence in change ready if you need the loo.....

    Waverley is the second largest station (by area) after Waterloo, just in case you care about these things :-)
