    The coffee inside the station sucks, so come out of the front and head to the right... 40 paces and you'll find Taylor Street Baristas - amazing and real espresso coffee and cakes.

    When leaving on the District Line in the morning rush hour(s) the first train to go is always the one most full, which is often not the one on the tannoy announcements or display board.

    Delighted than they have taken the effort to frame and keep the vintage posters. Several on the stairs down to platform 1! Well done Richmond staff!

    There is NO oyster card top up machine at the station. So if u want to avoid waiting for hours to get ur card topped up at the cashier, i suggest you plan a bit earlier than usual :-)

    It's worth walking across the road outside the station to the Starbucks opposite. New design store and great coffee, even for the fussy ones among us.

    The coffee kiosk serves coffee milkshakes which are awesome, but who ever named a frozen coffee a froffee wants shooting :-)

    This bridge carries the South West Trains Windsor Line between Richmond and St. Margarets. Great views, a bit too brief though.

    You have to queue at the ticket office to top up your oyster so it's worth visiting the newsagent instead beforehand

    If you have a moment take a look at the vintage posters while they still exist. They're along the route from the ticket hall to Platform 1.

    New vending machines that support Oyster top ups were added, so no need to queue anymore (or at least so often).

    You can now top up Oyster on the self-service ticket machines so no need to queue at a window!

    If using oyster here its a good place to tap out if you need the shops en-route.

    Hold your breath as you leave - smokers galore taking a last or first gasp at the entrance!!!! Not great at 8am

    The vintage posters are still there. Very cool in an 80's British Rail way :o)

    There are 10 ticket machines and 5 ticket windows. Only ticket windows do oyster transactions.

    Do not tap out on a pink Oyster card validator. It does not act as a signal to end your journey. You have to use the yellow pads at the exit. A bit of a scam.

    Train arriving in less than 1min and need for coffee: go to Yola, the short blond hair girl at Puccino's... Uber efficient!

    Lack of Oyster top up means guaranteed wait at windows - make sure you leave a good 5+ mins to queue!

    Only use the M&S for convenience foods - they don't sell things like flour etc. Great almond croissants though!

    If you're waiting at the bus stop outside and feel like coffee go back downstairs to Cornish Pasty place, cheapest coffee around.

    You can check out the memorial uncomfortably shoved in at the back - before it goes to Hoxton Station later this year

    Never trust the platform departure signs for the Overland train. They almost never show the real departure time.
