I have used this station on many occasions and it has many places to eat and shops while waiting for trains. What is often overlooked is the building itself as the architecture is worth a look.

This is a good station plenty of signage to find your way around and lots of staff too. There are numerous travelators you need to use rather than stairs as this venue is virtually underground but you can still manage them with carryon bags. There...More

I've never actually taken a train from Waverley, although the signage looks easy enough to understand and it's packed with places to eat, shops, etc. However, the historical building is an attraction in itself, in the centre of the city in the valley between the...More

I'm travelling back to London after a few days in Edinburgh. The station is brilliant. It has numerous shops, cafes and bars. Everything you need in a station. Out shines King's Cross by miles

If you are in the station make sure you find the time to visit the old ticket hall. It's a well hidden gem that has been converted. Check the glass domes and other decorations. It is free to enter and you don't need a train...More

It was a wonderful decision to chug into Edinburgh rather than flying in from either Gatwick or Stansted in London. The journey was very good from London King Cross to Waverley in Edinburgh. The station is massive and looks beautiful. With 18 platforms you might...More
