    Don't bother with the tube if you're going across the river to Strand/Trafalgar Square. Take a walk through the South Bank and across the Hungerford bridge. It doesn't take much longer and it's free!

    For Surrey leave from low number platforms, with local trains in a loop 'clockwise' back to the high number platforms. For Berkshire leave from high numbers with local journeys reversed

    Want to view the departure boards, but don't like crowds? Escaping up to the retail balcony will give a good view of the boards, without the need to continuously dodge passers by.
