Trivia

Refurbishment to the northbound services removed some of the partitions.

The larger southbound side is set around its food court, whereas northbound has the seating area set in the side of the building.

In the past this website used to describe the bridge between the two buildings, which is something quite temporary made permanent, as "nasty". We've now been told by a panel of experts that this is wrong, and that the correct description is "apocalyptic". The bridge, which is draughty and leaks, and for a long time did not connect to the building, has been reconnected to WHSmith.

A Subway outlet opened here on the southbound side on 13 December 2013 with a Harry Ramsden's opening on the southbound side too on 18 December 2013.
