Excellent selection of coffee locations - a flat white & sausage muffin from Benugo make a great combination early in the morning.
Huge but well organized. Easy to find your way.
Do your best not to find yourself here at 5am. Freezing cold and nowhere to sit/lie down.
Nearest mainland station to the London Eye. Only a short walk to the South Bank
Large with plenty of shops. Make sure you have the right platform!
Too bloody busy
So busy in the mornings but good selection of shops and restaurants

Use the tube entrance at the Platform 14 end of the station. Has the most lines running through here
There's a McDonalds at the bottom of the escalators!
Convenient for central London. Just walk over the bridge.
Large and very busy mostly. Keep your wits about you and keep moving!
It can gets you everywhere. And if you feel bored, can always visit Foyle's and read a book:)
Good selection of shops and eateries.
I love wasabi and pret-a-manger
Plenty of coffee shops and fast food/take away restaurants
Surely one of the busiest and most populated with shop of London stations
Big, food available. Long queue at ticket booth tho
Plenty of eateries within the station but it's very busy
All time busy station.
If you have a few minutes spend it to admire the architecture. You can even spot old stained glasses from the passage to Waterloo East.
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.
Want to get to the London Eye? This is the station for you
So very busy, and so very large
No seats to have a rest.

Costa Coffee is in the middle right behind the Information desk
New Foyles in town. Get here early and indulge with a book and a coffee upstairs
Don't buy anything from the vending machines - most of it is past it's sell by date....
Don't buy wine at Benugo it's £6 a small glass !
Going to Paris? You're at the wrong station. The French just couldn't handle getting off at Waterloo! LOL
To many shops snd Pop up boutiques so the traveling public can trample on each other. Commercialism gone mad.
Avoid at rush hour, purgatory.
Tourists: never stand on the left side of an escalator. Londoners will eat you alive.
For chedule go to :
Bar and grill burgers are well worth a try.
