    The new station is really nice, so much daylight, clean and a nice Starbucks.

    Despite this being a brand new station, there's nowhere to buy a beer or a wine. Pretty poor planning considering the amount of time London Midland strand passengers here, due to terminated trains.

    If you have a London Midland Train with Blue Seats these are by far the most comfortable. Individual tables and a number of seats with Extra leg room. In addition they have seats with communal tables

    Enjoy the changing of the guards...as in train guards because you'll be stuck on a London Midland train here for up to 20 minutes with nothing else to do. Makes Guantanamo seem like Butlins.

    Quickest and most comfortable to get here from London Euston is with Virgin Trains to Milton Keynes and then step over for London Midland on platform 3 for a much shorter trip to Northampton Station

    Check how long your train will be stopping here for. You're be able to get off and buy some goodies before it takes off again, as it can be up to 15 minutes.

    Don't get a London midland train if it's raining as they leave you standing in the rain with the doors locked.

    As a Northampton resident even admit this station needs a total revamp. It's a busy line an a Hub to London, so more investment needed.

    It's faster to book your tickets in advance online and collect from the ticket machines. Especially during school holidays when the queues can often overflow out of the station.
