    Overground self service ticket machines are upstairs. Underground ticket machines are downstairs. You cannot purchase overground rail tickets downstairs with the ticket machines.

    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.

    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.
    Endre Fejes · October 5, 2014
  • Christopher D.
    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!
    Christopher Doyle · September 27, 2014
  • Mark W.
    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
    Mark Wing · August 28, 2014
  • Jack S.
    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.

    All 39 minutes past the hour trains to Southampton, Poole or Portsmouth stop at Clapham Junction but this isn't advertised.

    There are a number of places to dine or simply buy some drinks. If you are looking for a cheap place to buy some food or bottle drinks, there is M&S simply food or WhistleStop towards the platform 1.

    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.
