    Platform 18 is hidden. Walk up past platform 17 and you will find it tucked away.

    It's a railway station - go here to get a train. Not so awesome.

    Stand clear of the doors and please remember to take all your belongings with you. Mind the Gap.

    Want to avoid paying 30p for the toilet? Just ask them if they have change of a £5/£10 note. They always just let you in for free as the change machines just take coins. Don't do this often though!

    Buy ur drinks from Boots - they are up to 70p cheaper than at WHSmith

    They are renovating the station and have made *such* a fantastic mess of Waverley... Get here early, there are dead ends and wrong signs everywhere...

    Dave F. · June 7, 2011
  • George B.

    Try to avoid standing on the track as the train approaches.

    Go to cafe Nero. Just got served off a lovely blonde haired guy with glasses. 5 star service!

    Head up cockburn st. To the clamshell chippy on the mile. Battered pizza... Lovely!!

    If you are on your way to Glasgow Queen Street, get food here and visit a cash machine, the station in Gasgow SUCKS and has nothing of value in the vicinity.

  • Martin P.

    Don't forget to buy your ticket before you board! Otherwise you will not get through the automatic gates!

    Not only have Waverley Steps re-opened, with escalators, there's also now lift access from mezzanine to Princes Street level.

    The best part is going up the waverley steps and stopping halfway for a pint

    Do not park in the station car park its over-priced

    You need a taxi at the station as it is very hilly all round if you have a lot of bags to carry

    Waverley steps close from 10 February 2011 for building works

  • Brian W.

    If there are no cabs, or a large queue, walk up the ramp to waverley bridge - there is a taxi rank there and some cab companies can't go into the station itself.

  • 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 :-)

    It is advisable not to step onto the track when a train is coming.

    With @CostaCoffee closed in the foyer, head up Waverley steps for an amazing @RazzoCoffee instead! #bestcoffee in the neighbourhood

    The new Waverley Steps escalators are open - a big improvement when exiting to Princes Street.

    DC · May 6, 2012
  • Dave F.

    Mind the gap at Platform 2 - it's more like a huge gaping chasm...!

    Dave F. · March 30, 2012

    Ask a team member about bite card. They're free and save you 20% off at Uppercrust, Millie's cookies, pasty shop and the Bar.

    We will shortly arrive at Edinburgh Waverley. Please ensure you have all your possessions with you. Do not attempt to open any doors until the train has come to a stand and the door unlocked light...

    Avoid wearing mustard coloured tights in Edinburgh. People give very strange looks. Get over it people!

    The bagel kiosk is great - I recommend the sweet chilli grilled cheese with tuna

    You know what's good in a place like this? Boots meal deal, a costa mocha or perhaps an upper crust whilkshire ham and cheddar sanny! If you are getting picked up, out back under the bridge is the pl

  • Kis V.

    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.

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

    30p to use toilets!

    Rose Street drinking establishments 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 M. · May 3, 2013
  • Shabs

    For once all the escalators are working!

    Shabs · April 7, 2013
  • Angus D.

    In the middle of major works to make it less like a dungeon. Should be epic when it's done.

    Angus D. · June 18, 2012

    Buy your drinks and snacks from Boots, it's the cheapest place in the station.

    New stairs and escalator open from Princes Street. Covered too!

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